Of Mice and Men
Of Mice and Men was written during a period of racism. In the 1960's it was important for
everyone to get along with eachother because not everyone was equal. George and Lennie
showed a great part in friendship throught the whole book. At the ranch in Selinas mostly
everyone showed friendship in some way. Friendship was a great factor when the book was
published because of all the racism going on at the time.

Friendship has a big part to do with Lennie and George's dream of owning a small farm and
raising animals. George and Lennie both set their mind to accomplish their dream and go to
work on a ranch for little pay. Another friend of George overhears George and Lennie
talking about their idea, Candy offers to put in his monthly wage to buy the farm as long
as he lives on it. Lennie and George have to go through many things on the farm and still
stick together like brothers. Curley, the son of the boss, runs most of the ranch and has
a mean attitude towards George and Lennie, George then realizes that no one cares for
Lennie like he does. George and Curley's wife create a strong bond throughout the book ,
but George wants nothing to do with it because he is there to accomplish his goal not to
start relationships. Many factors in this book show a sense of friendship in some way.
