    Don't make any difference who the guy is, long's he's with you. Steinbeck wanted to write a novel that could be played from its lines, or a play that could be read like a novel. Since they cannot do so, the real danger of Lennie's mental handicap comes to the fore. The story takes place on a ranch in Soledad, California.

    Lennie was explained as a beast in the book and, "his shoulders could fill the doorway. Lennie tries to stop her yelling and eventually, and accidentally, kills her by breaking her neck. Don't make any difference who the guy is, long's he's with you. Social authority the policeman doll and domestic authority the governess are both ineffective against the desires of the mice: one illustration depicts the animals simply evading the policeman doll to prowl outside the house and another illustration depicts the mice instructing their children about the dangers of the governess's mousetrap.

    I can't think of too many literary mice who aren't anthropomorphic in one way or another. Rather, the mouse seemed to be universal. In her book Animal Land, about the animals of children's literature, Margaret Blount points out that mice appeal to kids because they are small, furry, and secretive. Curley: The Boss' son, a young, pugnacious character, once a semi-professional boxer. However, his intellectual handicap undercuts this and results in his powerlessness.

The Little book of mice book

MacDonald, author of Beatrix Potterbelieves the success of The Tale of Two Mice lies in the plentiful and meticulous miniature details of the doll's house in the illustrations.

Mice weren't a specialized interest. Lennie possesses the greatest physical strength of any character, which should therefore establish a sense of respect as he is employed as a ranch hand.

He is described by others, with some irony, as "handy", partly because he likes to keep a glove filled with vaseline on his left hand. Curley's wife is lonely because her husband is not the friend she hoped for—she deals with her loneliness by flirting with the men on the ranch, which causes Curley to increase his abusiveness and jealousy.

It soon becomes clear that the two are close and George is Lennie's protector, despite his antics. The wording is clear, the story is adventurous, and the large type is offset by cute little illustrations.

Crooks aspires to a small homestead where he can express self-respect, security, and most of all, acceptance. Potter confidently asserted her tales would one day be nursery classics, and part of the process in making them so was marketing strategy.

It is only 30, words in length. Changes in Potter's life were reflected in her art, Kutzer notes. Lennie's part of the dream is merely to tend and pet rabbits on the farm, as he loves touching soft animals, although he always accidentally kills them.

First off, power is shown, or in some instances not shown, in the characters.

The Littles

Potter wrote: Thank you so much for the queer little dollies; they are exactly what I wanted The characters in the novel and the movie had many differences. Whit: A young ranch hand. Frederick C.

Another similarity between the Curley's wife enters the barn and tries to speak to Lennie, admitting that she is lonely and how her dreams of becoming a movie star are crushed, revealing her personality. Themes In every bit of honest writing in the world there is a base theme.

The small format of the book miniaturizes the illustrations further, and their outline borders make the details appear even smaller both by the illusion of diminution the borders create and by limiting the picture to less than the full page.

Slim is greatly respected by many of the characters and is the only character whom Curley treats with respect.
