Kindle [Of Mice and Men] Á John Steinbeck

Yet each man ills the thing he loves Oscar Wilde s prison poem came to mind not only for its literal truth in the context of Lenny and George but also because it evokes the brutal isolation of the whole cast of characters each one of them stuck in their separate reality and unable to connect with each other The young lonely wife has nobody to confide in and eeps looking for trouble out to connect with each other The young lonely wife has nobody to confide in and eeps looking for trouble out sheer isolation The black man is so utterly alone that he is almost insane and the barrier of his skin colour is even impenetrable than the woman s gender George s loneliness is connected to his responsibility for Lenny and Lenny himself is in the brutal prison of his intellectual inferiority and herculean strength Even the boss son is in a no man s land between privilege and tortureThe dream of sharing a future together Tested By Fire keeps the men s spirits alive for a Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck Friendship dream agonyThis book is not an easy read by any means But while the book graced with beautiful friendships and humanindness it also explores the darkest aspects of humanity and ugly racism That s a story of the love of one man for his friend he is willing to give up so much to help his friend because he loves him like a brother That s a masterfully written book with a very tragic ending and I couldn t stop my tears I got you to look after me and you got me to look after you and that s why Classic I remember reading this at school at being completely uninterested in the story I remember the teacher droning on about basic plot allegories before we read each section she would tell us what certain things meant before we had even seen them She would explain how this portrays a vital part of American culture and a vital element of human nature All in all we were told what to see in the book before we even began reading Perhaps she should have just let us read it first and see what we took from it before being told how to read it I hated it at the time I hated being told that passages meant certain things when clearly criticism is just speculation This wasn t effective teaching it was being told how to think She should have prized open The title of this novel is only 50% accurate a very poor effort Yes it s about men but there s little or nothing about mice in these pages Mice enthusiasts will come away disappointed This got me thinking about other novel titles You would have to say that such books as The Slap The Help The Great Gatsby Gangsta Granny Mrs Dalloway and Hamlet have very good titles because they are all about a slap some help a Gatsby who was really great a no good granny a woman who was married to a guy called Dalloway and a Hamlet I have no problem with those titles But you may be poring over the pages of To Kill a Mockingbird for a long fruitless evening to find any mockingbirds coming to any harm at all Indeed to coin a phrase no mockingbirds were harmed during the making of that book So I rate that title only 5% accurate And some titles seem to have a word missing such as Conan Doyle s The Sign of Four Four what It doesn t say Perhaps he completed the book and left the title to the very last minute and died as he was writing it down Same thing with The Crimson Petal and the White White what Wallpaper Hat Cat Mouse Mockingbird Could be The Crimson Petal and the White Gangsta Granny for all Cat Mouse Mockingbird Could be The Crimson Petal and the White Gangsta Granny for all now A poor title And what about The Dharma Bums I think a Cigarette or You Out is clearly missing from that title Another grossly misleading title is Women in Love I can t be the only reader who was expecting some strong girl on girl action from DH Lawrence but I would have been better off fast forwarding to the middle part of Mulholland Drive Now that s what I call Women in Love DH take note Another badly chosen title is Hitler s Niece yes it is 100% accurate but at first glance it can look like Hitler s Nice and surely that is going to put off a lot of potential readers except for the readers you really don t want And what about Call it Sleep call what sleep The Catcher in the Rye The Postman Always Rings Twice Flaubert s Parrot The Camomile Lawn sometimes obscure titles can be solved if you understand that the author is referring to Death so the Catcher is Death the Po.

Stman is Death the lawn is Death and the Parrot is Death Of course I may have got that wrong It s something I read somewhere and it just stuck in my mind Some other titles I would give low ratings to The Turn of the Screw completely baffled me I now that screw is what inmates call prison officers so I was expecting a story about a concert put on by the staff of a large correctional institution It was nothing like that The Little Prince according to my system does rate 100% but I still think The Little Faux naif Idiot would have been better The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay actually I rate this as 90% accurate there are two guys who are named Kavalier and Clay and they do have adventures but they aren t amazing A Clockwork Orange this must be a metaphor for I have given up thinking of a title for my novel No Name like A Clockwork Orange this must be where the author couldn t think of any title so in this case he left it without one like the Byrds album Untitled or by Sigur Ros or several paintings by De Kooning and those other abstract expressionist types but to call a novel No Name is self defeating because No Name then becomes its name epic fail Mr Collins The Violent Bear it Away this is another example of a word missing possibly took or dragged I expect that s the sort of thing a violent bear would do I m surprised the publisher did not catch this error Sometimes people can do awful things sometimes they mean it and sometimes they don tIn this novel we learn the story of George and Lennie Two wandering day laborers traveling together from work to work from trouble to trouble One small and cunning the other giant and retarded Working from city to city from field to field but always protecting each other A dream pushes them forward work the fields until one day have enough to purchase a small farm of their own A place where George can work the land and Lennie tend the rabbits But there are difficulties Lennie in his brutish innocence tends to get himself into serious problems and often that not bothA short but very memorable read from the famed pulitzer winner John Steinbeck A little 100p novella about the unbreakable bonds of friendship and the cruelties of a sometimes hostile rural world Still remaining East of Eden or The Grapes of Wrath someday One of those very few exceptions where the movie may actually match the book John Steinbeck creates two immortal characters but the movie 1992 gives them a real palpable soul Mainly due to the exceptional performance of John Malkovich and a very remarkable Gary Sinise Brilliant book to film adaptationUntil next time A veces la gente puede hacer cosas terribles a veces lo hacen a prop sito y a veces noEn esta novela conocemos la historia de George y Lennie Dos jornaleros errantes viajando juntos *De Trabajo En Trabajo De * trabajo en trabajo de en problema Uno y Lennie Dos jornaleros errantes viajando juntos de trabajo en trabajo de problema en problema Uno o y astuto otro gigante y retardado Trabajando de ciudad en ciudad de campo en campo pero siempre protegi ndose el uno al otro Un sue o los motiva a seguir juntos trabajar los campos hasta alg n d a tener lo suficiente para comprar una peue a parcela propia Un lugar donde George pueda trabajar la tierra y Lennie cuidar de los conejos Pero existen dificultades Lennie en su bruta inocencia tiende a meterse en serios aprietos y m s ue a menudo a ambosUna lectura corta pero muy memorable del afamado ganador del Pulitzer John Steinbeck Una peue a novella de 100p sobre los fuertes lazos de la amistad y las crueldades en un mundo campestre a veces hostilueda pendiente alg n d a leer East of Eden yo The Grapes of Wrath Una de esas peue as excepciones donde la pel cula tal vez supera la obra escrita John Steinbeck crea dos personajes inmortales pero la pel cula 1992 les otorga un alma real Principalmente gracias a las actuaci n excepcional de John Malkovich y un muy destacado Gary Sinise Brillante adaptaci n de cineHasta la pr xima 608 Of Mice And Men John SteinbeckOf Mice and Men is a novella written by author John Steinbeck Published in 1937 it tells the story of George Milton and Lennie Small two displaced migrant ranch workers who move from place to place in California in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in the United States 1974 1340.
