Let's do a duo: Of Mice and Men & Cannery Row by John Steinbeck
mar. 26 mars à 00:00
Both Cannery Row & Of Mice and Men are stories whose protagonists can be called nothing other than misfits. Both novels cast outsiders as their central characters: one book clearly a comedy and the other, a pitiful tragedy. Of Mice and Men revolves around two central characters: Lennie and George. Lennie is a man with the strength of two, but with it the mind of a child - simple, unaffected, and kindly. His whole world centers around George, who steers him through life and protects him when his superhuman strength and child's mind unwittingly entangle him in trouble. John Steinbeck said of Cannery Row: 'I just opened the pages and let the stories crawl in by themselves'. Cannery Row is a street bordered by houses, shacks, and boiler pipes, in which live all kinds of people, good and bad, kind and cruel, the industrious and the idle, who have one thing at least in common - their poverty. Written more than 75 years ago and still considered relevant classics, these books are worth a read- whether it be for the first time or for the tenth.
