After reading Of Mice and Men, I felt the need to research the author. After researching the author, I realized that he based this book off of his experiences.

Of Mice and Men depicts a migrant worker and the struggles they face while trying to make their dream become a reality. Steinbeck highlights the perceived isolation and fight for independence that can

In ¨Of Mice and Men¨, directed by Gary Sinese, Lenny is seen differently in the book than he is the movie, in more ways than one. One way that Lennie is seen differently in the movie is when we get to hear the quality of his voice. Now that the viewer gets to hear Lennie, we can now see how much his disability really affects him. Another moment where you can see Lennie 's differences, is when he gets in a fight with Curley and crushes his hand. In the book you can 't tell his facial expressions, how angry he really is or what he does in that scene. In the movie, you can see how angry and upset he was just by looking at his face and how much pressure he was really putting on Curley 's hand. A final scene in the movie that we don 't get to see

Equally important is the way in which he intertwines the themes of loneliness and friendship and gives dignity to those characters, especially Lennie and Crooks, who are clearly different from their peers.
