    Candy is an old ranch worker ("swamper") who has lost one of his hands in a farm accident. He''''''''s spent the best years of his life working on someone else''''''''s ranch, only to lose his hand and have little money. Depressing, right?

    Candy''''''''s dog was once a great sheepherder, but it was put out to pasture once it stopped being productive. Sound familiar? Candy realizes that his fate is to be put on the roadside as soon as he''''''''s no longer useful; his ranch boss won''''''''t treat him any differently than his dog.

    We read the novel for my 9th grade English class, and I''''m supposed to be writing and essay about it right now, but oh well. It was an amazing book, though many of my classmates disliked it. The characters were impressive and I really liked old Candy. It was good for historical reference and offered a look at the depression.

    Of Mice and Men is a fantastic novel that shows how hard it was in the times of the Great Depression. The difference between Lennie and George compared to the migrant workers is that they had each other. In the novel, it shows how George takes care of Lennie who has a mental disability. Most of the migrant workers wanted to achieve the success of the American Dream that was different for every American. Lennie and George too wanted to the euphoria of achieving their American Dream. Lennie and George’s dream was to own a ranch and live off. Read more

    Adults can''t decide if they want to require you to read John Steinbeck ''s Of Mice and Men —or make that sure you never even pick it up. Since it was published in 1937, it''s been banned about as often as it''s been assigned.

    Why? Take your pick, really. Killing. Violence. Swearing. Brothels. Racism. Sexism. The book''s ending is beyond sad, and might be considered an endorsement of euthanasia. Not to mention, its message isn''t exactly full of praise for the American way of life.

    The following morning, George and Lennie reach the bunk house at the farm. Candy , the old man who shows them the bunk house, tells them that his boss was expecting them the night before and was angry when they weren t ready for work in the morning. Near his bed George finds a can of insect poison, which leads him to think that his bunk is infected, but the old man reassures him, telling him that person who had the bed before was a meticulous blacksmith named Whitey who kept the insect killer around even though there were no insects to kill.

    As George prepares to meet the boss, Candy reports that he is a nice enough man although he takes his anger out on the black stable buck, Crooks. Soon enough, the boss enters and asks George and Lennie for their work slips. George attempts to speak for both Lennie and himself, but the boss notices Lennie s silence and questions him directly. Lennie attempts to speak for himself, aping phrases that George has spoken, but sounds completely ridiculous. George tells the boss that Lennie isn t bright, but that he s as strong as a bull and an incredibly hard worker.

    The novel, which takes place during the Great Depression, begins beside the Salinas River near Soledad, California, where two migrant workers, Lennie Small and George Milton, are walking on their way to a nearby ranch. They have recently escaped from a farm near Weed where Lennie, a mentally deficient yet gentle man, was wrongly accused of rape when he touched a woman to feel her soft dress.

    Candy is old like his dog. His age and his mangled hand have made him redundant. Like George and Lennie, he wants a place to belong: he wants a sense of permanence and identity.

    Adults can''''''''t decide if they want to require you to read John Steinbeck ''''''''s Of Mice and Men —or make that sure you never even pick it up. Since it was published in 1937, it''''''''s been banned about as often as it''''''''s been assigned.

    The following morning, George and Lennie reach the bunk house at the farm. Candy , the old man who shows them the bunk house, tells them that his boss was expecting them the night before and was angry when they weren t ready for work in the morning. Near his bed George finds a can of insect poison, which leads him to think that his bunk is infected, but the old man reassures him, telling him that person who had the bed before was a meticulous blacksmith named Whitey who kept the insect killer around even though there were no insects to kill.

    As George prepares to meet the boss, Candy reports that he is a nice enough man although he takes his anger out on the black stable buck, Crooks. Soon enough, the boss enters and asks George and Lennie for their work slips. George attempts to speak for both Lennie and himself, but the boss notices Lennie s silence and questions him directly. Lennie attempts to speak for himself, aping phrases that George has spoken, but sounds completely ridiculous. George tells the boss that Lennie isn t bright, but that he s as strong as a bull and an incredibly hard worker.
