Of Mice and Men is a novel written by John Steinbeck and published in 1937. In this story, we encounter two characters: George and Lennie, his simple-minded friend. They will try somehow to be accepted to work in a ranch during the Great Depression. Lennie is an imposing character and has a passion for smooth things. But his strength harm him all the time. George is Lennie’s guardian angel because he promised to take care of him to Lennie’s aunt. So, they navigate both.
