    This essay is a very serious attempt to explore the issues of racism and loneliness. Points are strongly made, though sometimes a little off-key, with well-chosen quotations (though these are sometimes misquoted). It is a little rambling and repetitive and sentence construction is often very loose but the essay writer''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s dedication to the task shines through.

    George Milton and Lennie Small are friends who travel together. They both share the same dream, which is to one day own their own ranch. George is quick-witted and intelligent. He takes the parental role of looking after Lennie, a simple-minded man who in the book is described as a giant. Lennie is kind hearted with huge physical strength. He does not know how powerful he is and likes to pet animals. The other men on the ranch find their relationship unusual, they do not know of their past. George describes himself and Lennie as the loneliest guys in the world.

    George feels sorry for himself; he can see the reality of being a ranch-hand. This loneliness therefore makes both him and Lennie have a dream that motivates him to work. It is the one thing that they are living for.

    If one theme can be thought of as defining the plot and symbolism of Of Mice and Men , that theme is loneliness. In many ways, from the outspoken to the subtle (such as Steinbeck s decision to set the novel near Soledad, California, a town name that means solitude in Spanish), the presence of loneliness defines the actions of the diverse characters in the book.

    The itinerant farm worker of the Great Depression found it nearly impossible to establish a fixed home. These men were forced to wander from ranch to ranch seeking temporary employment, to live in bunk houses with strangers, and to suffer the abuses of arbitrary bosses. George sums up the misery of this situation at several points during his monologues to Lennie - Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don t belong no place (15).

    "Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don't belong no place. They come to a ranch an' work up a stake and then they go inta town and blow their stake, and the first thing you know they're poundin' their tail on some other ranch. They ain't got nothing to look ahead to." (1.113)

    It's hard out there for a ranchhand. Steinbeck seems to be saying that the loneliness is even worse than the poverty: like Lennie and George, you can bear a lot more if you have a friend.

    The two are dressed nearly identically, but there the similarities end. George is small and smart, Lennie is huge and mentally slow. Though the narrative doesn t explicitly say what his disability is, we can tell from his dialogue and actions that he is severely challenged. # George also reminds Lennie about why they lost their last job: something about a girl with a soft, red dress that Lennie liked to pet (the dress, not the girl; although technically, yes, the girl was in the dress at the time). # This "petting" is a genuine problem for Lennie. Lennie likes to pet things a little too hard and a little too long - an activity that keeps resulting in dead rabbits. From Shmoop/Chapter 1/Of Mice and Men
