Of Mice and Men

In the Marxist lens



Featuring

George

And Lennie

And Rabbit







George has mental power over Lennie because Lennie has a physical problem.

Lennie will do whatever George tells him to do.

“Give it here!” Lennie’s closed hand slowly obeyed.” (Steinbeck 6)


Lennie physical problem.


Lennie has a different kind of power. He is big and strong which makes it seem like he has more ‘power’ than he actually does. He is actually compared to an animal to show his strength.

“Lennie dabbled his big paw in the water…” (Steinbeck 3).

He seems to be cursed with the hand of death to all soft things that he touches.


Like mice which makes it seem like he has more


And cuddly puppies which makes it seem like he has more


And even… which makes it seem like he has more


Pretty Women! which makes it seem like he has more




Curley has power over all of the workers because he is the boss’s sun.

“This guy Curley sounds like a [S.O.B.] to me. I don’t like little mean guys.” (Steinbeck 27)


Curley’s wife even has power over Crooks, a nice, educated, black man. Which shows that there is still some racism in this time period.

“They play cards in there, but I can’t play because I’m black. They say I stink.” (Steinbeck 68)
