Gr 9 Up--Focusing on one of Steinbeck's short works that is often used in high school curricula, this volume begins with a 15-page biography of the author with emphasis on his writing life. The rest of the book explores Of Mice and Men through essays devoted to analysis of themes; symbols, structure, and fictional method; and major critical responses to the novel and the play. Essays on topics such as the nature of good and evil, the lyricism of the narrative, and "The Dream of a Male Utopia" are intellectually stimulating and accessible, and allow a clear picture of the work to emerge. It is also emphasized that there are many approaches to great works of literature and that different readers respond to different qualities and aspects. The appended chronology and list for further reading make this companion a valuable tool for initiating serious study of a great American work.
