A controversial tale of friendship and tragedy during the Great Depression Over seventy-five years since its first publication, Steinbeck’s tale of commitment, loneliness, hope, and loss remains one of America’s most widely read and taught novels. An unlikely pair, George and Lennie, two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression, grasp for their American Dream. They hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him. 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. This edition features an introduction by Susan Shillinglaw, one of today’s leading Steinbeck scholars. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

The Identity of Curley s Wife in Carlisle Floyd s Of Mice and Men

The interpretation of Curley's wife as a temptress and seductress in the novel Of mice and men by John Steinbeck (1937) has left scholars and audiences divided.

The interpretation of Curley's wife as a temptress and seductress in the novel Of mice and men by John Steinbeck (1937) has left scholars and audiences divided. Although her part was expanded in the Broadway play in 1937, there were still questions on her role, even for the actress portraying the part. In the mid-to-late 1960s the novel would be adapted to an opera by Carlisle Floyd, with a less ambiguous interpretation of her character. This study compares characterization of Curley's wife in the novel with the opera by considering her literary themes within the context of women's issues that were influential during the conception of both works. Analysis of the music will demonstrate Floyd's subtle changes to her character, and how it enhances her role as a seductress.

Of Mice and Men and Zombies

Have you ever questioned how Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck would have went if there was a zombie apocalypse as opposed to the Great Depression? Well, I did. What started as a fun personal project quickly escalated into something bigger. This is a short novella, about half the length of an average book and does not fit into the Among the Dead series. "Originally published in 1937 by John Steinbeck, reimagined and corrupted by Ryan Colley in 2018 for this satirical novella. George Milton, an intelligent and quick witted survivor, and Lennie Small, a physically strong but intellectually challenged childlike individual, are two displaced ranch workers fleeing the apocalypse. Forced to move from place to place, partially due to Lennie's misdeeds and mainly due to the undead roaming the land. They both search for work in a collapsing world in an attempt to buy their own corner of heaven where they will be safe together from the "Sick Ones" and "live off the fatta the lan." For fans of the original novel, apocalypse fiction, or for those looking for something different."
