John Steinbeck

John Ernst Steinbeck, Jr. (February 27, 1902 – December 20, 1968) was an American writer. He wrote a total of twenty-seven books, including sixteen novels, six non-fiction books and five collections of short stories. In 1962, Steinbeck received the Nobel Prize for Literature.
If I recall the events correctly, Steinbeck, unlike some modern writers like Ernest K. Gann, does not use the back-to-front perspective in writing novels. the plot unfolds from begining to end. The animal dies towards the end of the story. I was not aware of Steinbeck using the Back-to-Front...
Lennie looks up to George as he is the more intelligent one of the two, he always instructs Lennie on what to do and he is almost like an older brother to him. But the fact that he walks behind him is strange as he is the biggest and most muscular. Usually the bigger person will lead, but in this...
Most of the content is the same except for a few slight things that were added or tweaked a bit. The general story obviously follows the same ideas and a lot is quoted from the book. So there are lots of similarities really.
He backs down when they take about Curley's wife sleeping with Slim.
He shots him to prevent him from a painfull death.
Lennie has a want to touch soft things so he saw a young woman's dress and touched it. The girl started screaming and was really scared and he just held on stronger and stronger until George had to make him let go of her. They had to leave because the townspeople were looking to kill him because the...
She's now happily retired in beautiful Vigan, along with her husband. They run one of the biggest souvenir shops in Calle Crisologo.
However later in the book Curley's wife also abuses her power as women against crooks by threatening him, "I could get you strung up on a tree so easy it ain't even funny."Curley's wife shows she is weak as she confesses that she doesn't like Curley, because she has made herself seem weak she then...
Juana and Kino are man and wife, however, some people say they are not man and wife. They have a child named Coyotito, who, over the course of the story, dies. The relationship is basically close. There are family arguments and there is plenty of reason for them.
Curley's wife notices that Lennie has a bunch of bruises on his face. Being Curley's wife, she has also likely noticed that Curley had some problems with his hand. She likely put two and two...
Steinbeck was born in Salinas, California. This area had a major influence in his early formative years.

Type your answer here...there were not a book name moses
Yes, for having an affair with his wife, (he didnt actually have one !)
I read the book and found nothing wrong with it except that the story is sad. The ending depressed me quiet a lot
As a child of migrant farm workers in California, my parents, grandparents, as well as several relatives, settled in the San Joaquin Valley, near Tulare on what was known then as the Tagus Ranch. We lived in tents, cars, and whatever else would protect us from the weather. My parents picked picked...
George told Lennie to jump into a river. Since Lennie always obeys George, he jumped in. However, he could not swim so he nearly drowned. After this incident, George never pranked Lennie again.
Similarity: Both are nurturing parents. For example, when Coyotito got stung, Juana makes a poultice of herbs to stop the swelling while Kino smashes the scorpion because it bit Coyotitto. Differences: Kino thinks the pearl represents all good things but Juana thinks its evil
      The Grapes of Wrath,   The Winter of Our Discontent,   The Pearl,   Travels With Charley,   Of Mice and Men
Lennie kills everything, its what he does.

the bus driver didn't want to drive them, so they went looking for a job
Because one day George said to jump and lennie jumped in to the water and almost drowned
because they were to dumb to read the book
no one really knows but im pretty sure its because they don't realize how special it is
No, because George kills Lennie.
Curley's wife, she does not have a name though :-)
Both migrant workers who longed a dream of owning their own ranch, not having to be under anyone's orders, but the novel has cyclic pattern where nothing is going to change, and George realises this; that he will spend his time on the ranch with the others, drinking and visiting the brothel, so he...
During the first twenty years of his career, Steinbeck was lauded by critics. Between 1929 and 1949, Steinbeck's success was remarkable. However, around 1950, critics became harsher in their critiques of his work, and many note that this discouraged Steinbeck. (See critiques of East of Eden, 1952)....
Candy basically characterizes her as a loose women. He tells the boys that she is always looking for trouble and gives men "the eye."
lwhen lennie goes out for wood he brings back a dead mouse. therfore george gets angry with him and takes it away from him
kino and juana froze in their positions.juana repeated an acient magic to uard against such evil
He's not upset so much as he constantly needs to prove himself and his valor - his worth as a man.
The title comes from (and Steinbeck himself admitted to this) the Battle Hymn of the Republic.The Battle Hymn of the Republic is a march and you can easily find a link to its lyrics since no copyrighted material is allowed on here. You probably know the tune..
They seem to be unrelated, but it is unclear how they became companions.George makes a promise to Lennie's Aunt Clara that he will look after Lennie, and he keeps that promise. When discussing his past with Lennie, George often refers to "your Aunt Clara," which at least indicates that she is not...
He compares Lennie to a bear by referring to his big paws. He describes Lennie drinking from the river like a horse. When Lennie kills the puppy, he circles nerviously like a terrier.
Steinbeck did not write the Little Prince- whichwas written by Saint Exuperby, the French writer. In the old days they would Americanize this to sound like Saint ( no problem there)- Ex-Bury or Exburry- this is not correct in French it is Exx-OUU Pair- Bee! but that sounds too ( French) you know get...
Slim's dog had a litter of puppies and Lennie will want to sleep in the barn with them.
he didnt mean to kill her . he was playing with her hair and suddenly her neck broke.
Because he was born in Salinas California, on the Monterey Coast. He must have known it best, and chose it as his main focal point in his novels, novelettes, and short stories.

  == Answer ==   JOHN ERNST & OLIVE HAMILTON STEINBECK     John Ernst Steinbeck (Jr.) was the third of four children and the only son born (1902, Salinas, Califirnia) to County Treasurer John Ernst Steinbeck and former schoolteacher Olive Hamilton Steinbeck.
A man once told her that she was a natural at acting, and he would write her so that she could get in the movies. But, she never got the letter, and she thinks that it was because her mother took it. Her mother didn't want Curley's wife to be in the movies, and didn't let her go into the business....
Well if you look on page 23, it clearly says (when people found out  about the pearl) "The news stirred up something infinitely black  and evil in the town; the black distillate was like the scorpion,  or like hunger in the smell of food, or like loneliness when love  is withheld. The poison...

No they are not. George knew Lennie's Aunt Clara and when she died he promised her that he would watch after Lennie.
I would argue that Steinbeck does not write Lennie as a dignified character in Of Mice and Men. However, he does seem to treat Lennie with respect by not denouncing his simpleness. Lennie, for all intents and purposes, is an innocent child, despite his great size and strength. Steinbeck does have...
He produced fictional American literature
He was probably bisexual, not gay. The reason some jump to the conclusion is because of the nature of his writing in his books, such as Of Mice and Man and East of Eden. East of Eden has a gay marriage, Mice and Man has a gay sex scene. The fact that Kazan, a known homosexual, produced the screen...
candy and lenie do get along but you dont se them together ofte. he tries to llok out for him and that it realy.
  == Answerness ==   This would probably be "Of Mice and Men".
George is a quick witted man of small or average stature, Lennie is a mentally disabled man of great physicality.
The reason Lennie is been over powered by Curley is because Curley as a man is able but he feels jelous-he has an abnomality which makes him permentaly short,so he feels jealous to see Lennie who is taller/bigger than him,this is why he wants"sock" ..
They say that Curley got his hand caught in a machine, but, he in fact got into a serious fight with Lennie which in result left him with a crushed hand.
Candy found Curley's wife's dead body first.
  it was either heart disease or a heart attack
I Don't know. Ask a girl. :P
John Steinbeck worked construction,apprentice hood carrier, apprentice painter, and a state care taker
Slim convinces Curley to kill his dog because his dog is already old and barely making it living in the worst conditions.
He was showing how the weak ones were outcasted. He wants people to stand up to that, and wants to evoke this feeling when George wrongly kills Lennie.
In the novel Of Mice and Men, Suzy is the owner of a brothel which the ranch workers visit when they receive their monthly wages. Suzy is in competition with Clara, a lady who runs a rival brothel. However, the ranch workers in Of Mice and Men prefer Suzy's place because she has a good sense of...

He was a rebel in the sense that he went against the Americans who despised him and wrote much about the American dream. He was an individual in a very dependent place.

John Steinbeck went to Stanford University.

how do i write curley wife as poem
Before George, Aunt Clara took care of Lennie. She took him in from a young age.
Slim told curley that he would tell everyone how he was crying on the floor when Lennie crushed his hand and that would ruin his reputation
Because he wanted to know how Lennie would feel without George on his side.
John Steinbeck was an English major at Standford University in California, but only attended sporadically from 1919 to 1925, and never achieved a degree.
he doesn't want to let lennie in his room because lennie is white and crooks, being black, isn't allowed in the white bunk house, so why should a white man be allowed in his room?he changes his mind because he wants someone to talk to and feels grateful for the company.
John Steinbeck won a Pulitzer Prize for his novel, The Grapes of Wrath, in 1940.
