George and Lennie are an unlikely pair: George is small and quick, and Lennie is a man of tremendous size and simple mind. But together they’ve formed a family, rallying against seclusion and alienation. As laborers in California’s vegetable fields in the Great Depression, they find work where they can, but they have big dreams of owning land and a shack they can call their own. So when they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, their big dreams suddenly seem within reach. But George cannot guard the childlike Lennie from life’s provocations, nor can he predict the consequences of Lennie’s unswerving obedience to what George has taught him. A tragic and moving story of friendship, loneliness, and the dispossessed, Of Mice and Men is classic John Steinbeck—heart wrenching and remarkable.

The Grapes of Wrath is generally considered Steinbeck's masterpiece, but the short novel was the form he most frequently turned to and most consciously theorized about, and with constant experimentation he made the form his own. Much of the best—and the worst—of his writing appears in his short novels. This collection reviews what has been categorized as the “good” and the “bad,” looking beyond the careless labeling that has characterized a great deal of the commentary on Steinbeck's writing to the true strengths and weaknesses of the works. The contributors demonstrate that even in the short novels that are most often criticized, there is more depth and sophistication than has generally been acknowledged. The essays examine the six most popular short novels—Tortilla Flat, The Red Pony, Of Mice and Men, The Moon Is Down, Cannery Row, and The Pearl—in addition to the three usually thought of as less successful—Burning Bright, Sweet Thursday, and The Short Reign of Pippin IV. Because most of Steinbeck's short novels were adapted and presented as plays or screenplays, many of the essays deal with dramatic or film versions of the short novels as well as with the fiction. The collection concludes with a comprehensive checklist of criticism of the short novels. Contributors. Richard Astro, Jackson J. Benson, Carroll Britch, John Ditsky, Joseph Fontenrose, Warren French, Robert Gentry, Mimi Reisel Gladstein, William Goldhurst, Tetsumaro Hayashi, Robert S. Hughes Jr., Howard Levant, Clifford Lewis, Peter Lisca, Anne Loftis, Charles R. Metzger, Michael J. Meyer, Robert E. Morsberger, Louis Owens, Roy S. Simmonds, Mark Spilka, John Timmerman

At the core of the story Steinbeck wrote as a play-novella are the well-known characters of Lenny and George, migrant workers, lifelong companions, the one hugely strong and mentally deficient, the other small, wiry, and quick-minded. Hadella offers a complete analysis of these characters and their relationship, bringing to bear both Jungian and biblical mythology and comparing them with figures in other Steinbeck works.
