3.1. We know very little of the background of George and Lennie except they were ran out of Weed due to Lennie harassing a girl, apart from that we can only speculate that George and Lenny have been friends for a very long time and that they probably had worked on the same farm before the dust bowl.

4. Context

4.1. John Steinbeck’s novel shows a rich description of two travellers stories during the time of migrant workers after the dust bowl in the Great Depression. And how it shows the struggles of American farmers in the regions of California as they and millions of other migrant workers realise that the American dream is all a lie.
