Of Mice and Men Outcast Essay

James Briggs Mr. Tracy English 2 October, 25 Outcast’s In Of Mice and Men The novella we read in class was Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck. The story is mainly about two migrant workers George and Lennie who are from Salinas, California. They follow the work, from ranch to ranch to make a living, along the way Lennie get’s into trouble a couple times. This story is also about outcasts, which this story consists several of. This essay is to show who the outcasts are, what makes them outcasts and what they have in common with each other.

This story shows American history, we still have these outcast today like the ones that are presented in this novella. One of the biggest outcasts in this short story is Crook’s. “S’pose you didn’t have nobody. S’pose you couldn’t go into the bunk house and play rummy ’cause you was black. How’d you like that? S’pose you had to sit out here an’ read books. Sure you could play horseshoes till it got dark, but then you got to read books. Books ain’t no good.

A guy needs somebody to be near him. A guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody. Don’t make no difference who the guy is, long’s he’s with you. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets long’s he’s with you. I tell ya, I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an’ he gets sick” (pg 80). This quote is Crooks talking to Lennie about what he goes through being a black outcasts. This quote shows that when your lonely you get desperate to talk to somebody even if they aren’t really listening.
