John Steinbeck’s novel, Of Mice and Men , was first published in 1937. At the time, America was still suffering the grim aftermath of the depression and the itinerant workers who form the basis of the novel were very much within the consciousness of a nation separated by wealth yet driven by the idea of ‘the American dream’. Steinbeck’s novel is, however, essentially a tale of loneliness, of men struggling alone against a cold, uncaring and faceless destiny.

The central protagonists, George and Lennie are, as they are proud to proclaim, different from the others because they have each other. They are an odd couple, George the shrewd, wiry yet ultimately caring protector of the ironically named Lennie Small, who is, in fact, a huge man who doesn’t know his own strength and is mentally incapable of making the smallest of decisions for himself; he relies on George completely but equally, George needs Lennie as he gives him a reason to keep going. Lennie, despite his lack of intellect, senses this because when he knows George feels guilty for being angry with him, he takes advantage of the moment to manipulate George into repeating the story of their ‘dream future’, especially the rabbits they intend to keep with which Lennie is obsessed.

    Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck Of Mice and Men Tone Take a story s temperature by studying its tone. Is it hopeful? Cynical? Snarky? Playful? Sympathetic, Realistic, Honest Steinbeck’s attitude toward the subject of his novella is one of great sympathy tempered by realism. Steinbeck contrasts the real world of poverty, limited resources, limiting social roles, human intolerance, and violence with the dream world of freedom, autonomy, wealth, friendship, and loyalty. This stark and unflinching juxtaposition seems an honest attempt to reveal that for some, the American Dream was simply that – a hopeless dream. It’s not surprising that Steinbeck’s tone is so terribly dismal, given Steinbeck’s attachment to "naturalism." For naturalist writers, characters are essentially "human beasts." They are influenced by (and should be studied through) their relationships to their surroundings. The naturalist writer analyzes his characters as though they are conditioned and controlled by environment, heredity, instinct, or chance. Because of this objective outlook, the author portrays his characters impartially, without moralizing about their "good" or "evil" natures. Lennie’s character is a great example of Steinbeck’s naturalist approach: Lennie has some kind of mental disability, and this circumstance of his life influences his actions. Though Lennie inarguably commits a terrible crime, the way Steinbeck portrays him makes us hesitant to pass judgment. Steinbeck presents the characters to us just as they are, never insisting that we think this or that about them. Instead, his approach makes us feel for them as fellow human beasts, caught in the inevitable suffering of existence. http://www.shmoop.com/of-mice-and-men/tone.html Of Mice and Men Essays http://www.slashdoc.com/docs/O-4.html http://www.slashdoc.com/docs/O-5.html
