Of Mice and Men, Day 1

We received our copies of the novel Of Mice and Men today and discussed some background.
The novel takes place in the artichoke capitol of the world, Salinas, CA. John Steinbeck is the author.
Really, you’re Honors kids, so I’m sure you already know most of this.
This lead to us discussing the American Dream, which, at the time of this particular novel, was simply independence. Much more agrarian than today because they didn’t trust banks then.
Be on the lookout for symbolism and personification.
Read through page 16 tonight.
