Of Mice and Man

Of mice and men

The story takes place in the early years of amerika and tells about the love two men can feel for another. These two men work on farms. One inarticulate, dumb, sometimes violent in his need, the other clever, hopefully and feels responsible for the other.
The name of the intelligent one is george. The other is named Lennie, he is disabled since his birth. Lennie is silly but strong, that‘s one reason why george takes lennie with him. The other reson is that he promised lennies aunt clara to look after lennie when she is dead. Lennie always gets problems because of his stupidity. He likes soft things and specialy to pet animals. He doesn’t know how to use his (kraft) and kills often the animals he pets because he can’t let off them. He doesn’t want to kill and don’t understand what he is doing.
After they got problems on their old farm they took a new job in another region on a new farm. There they met an old men named Candy. George told him about his dream of a little farm of his own and that Lennie and him are saving money for this reason. Candy told him that he has the same dream and that he has got money. George thought that if all 3 of them work there for a month they will have enough money to realize their dream. Everyday george had to tell lennie what they will have on their farm because Lennie was fallen in love with this imagination.
Evrything went good and Lennie got a little puppy from his boss. One day he was sitting in the stable in front of the puppy. He had killed it because he presse it to hard. The wife of the bosses son came and said that he shouldn’t worry. She was known by everybody as a slut. She sat down in the hay beside lenny. She wanted him to feel her hair which was also nice to pet. He touched it and like always suddenly he couldn’t let off her. She began to yell and cry and lennie wanted her to be silent. Lennie pressed her stronger and stronger and suddenly she stoped shouting. He had broken her neck. Lennie remembered what George told him. They arranged a place near a river where he should go if he gets problems.
When the other workers noticed what had happend and her husband a hunting started, george ran to the arranged place and there he found Lennie. He told him not to worry and that he still loves him and then, when he heard the other men coming, he wanted Lennie to look over the river and imagin their farm was over there. Then he told his story what the farm would be like and at Lennies favorite passage he took his gun and shoot Lennie in the neck.
