John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men is one of the best loved novellas of all time. Two drifters - small, shrewd George and huge, simple-minded Lennie - get work on a ranch, planning to raise enough money to get a place of their own and live off the land, if George can save his childlike, bull-strong friend from getting into trouble. A powerfully moving story of friendship, Of Mice and Men is a simply told masterpiece.

Two devastating short novels adapted for the stage by Steinbeck himself A Penguin Classic This Penguin Classics edition celebrates Steinbeck’s dramatic adaptations of his most powerful short novels, Of Mice and Men and The Moon Is Down, featuring a foreword by award-winning actor James Earl Jones. Of Mice and Men represents an experiment in form – as Steinbeck put it, “a kind of playable novel, written in novel form but so scened and set that it can be played as it stands.” A rarity in American letters, it achieved remarkable success as a novel, a Broadway play, and three acclaimed films. Of Mice and Men received the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Play in 1937-1938. A number of acclaimed actors have interpreted the iconic roles of George and Lennie for stage and screen, including James Earl Jones, John Malkovich and Gary Sinise. The Moon Is Down uncovers profound, often unsettling truths about war and human nature. It tells the story of a peaceable town taken by enemy troops, and had an extraordinary impact as Allied propaganda in Nazi-occupied Europe. This Penguin Classics edition of the theatrical adaptations of Steinbeck’s two classic short novels is essential to actors, playwrights, filmmakers and directors studying the dramatic work of the Nobel Prize winning author of The Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

These study notes are suitable for any course of study which includes this literary text. The study notes include detailed chapter summaries, study questions, character studies, essays on themes, language and style, suggestions for creative tasks and sample examination questions.As the free preview does not go as far as the essays on character and theme, an extract is given below so that you can judge the level of detail and difficulty:George is a "bindlestiff" - an itinerant ranch hand. His physical characteristics are that he is "small", "dark of face" and has "sharp, strong features" (ch. 1, p. 2). In this initial description of George, there are also some hints about his character: he is "quick" and has "restless eyes". Later in the book, when he is talking to Slim, he says "I ain't so bright neither, or I wouldn't be buckin' barley for my fifty and found" (ch. 3, p. 44). This may be true, but he is certainly clever and wise. It could be that, when he says this, he is excusing himself, knowing that he could have achieved more if he did not have to look after Lennie. His wisdom and common sense are demonstrated in the next few pages when he advises Lennie to be careful about the pool because it "Looks kinda scummy" (ch. 1, p. 3). He explains to Lennie: "You never oughta drink water when it ain't running." By contrast, Lennie just puts his head in the water and gulps it "like a horse". This little incident brings out the contrast between the two men very early in the novel. We soon find out that Lennie is mentally disabled, and that George looks after him. The history of their relationship is explained later in the novel, when he is talking to Slim in chapter 3:"Him and me was both born in Auburn. I knowed his Aunt Clara. She took him when he was a baby and raised him up. When his Aunt Clara died, Lennie just come along with me out workin'." (ch. 3, p. 45)
