Jus’ say, ‘We’ll go to her,’ an’ we would. Jus’ milk the cow and sling some grain to the chickens an’ go to her.‘”.

    Of Mice and Men represents an experiment in form, which Steinbeck described as “a kind of playable novel, written in a novel form but so scened and set that it can be played as it stands.” A rarity in American letters, it achieved remarkable success as a novel, a Broadway play, and three acclaimed films.4/5(K).   Of Mice and Men.

    Loneliness of the itinerant worker. If one theme can be thought of as defining the plot and symbolism of Of Mice and Men, that theme is many ways, from the outspoken to the subtle (such as Steinbeck's decision to set the novel near Soledad, California, a town name that means "solitude" in Spanish), the presence of loneliness defines the actions of the diverse characters in the book. This chapter starts with the description of George and Lennies’ new living residence on the farm. They meet an old man who informs them that the boss is mad that they had not arrived last night and he had to send a team out with two men short. This old man has one hand cut off and has the permanent job of sweeping the grounds.
