La storia di un'amicizia profonda tra due uomini, due braccianti stagionali in California che condividono un sogno. George Milton si occupa da sempre con ferma dolcezza di Lennie Small, un gigante con il cuore e la mente di un bambino. Il loro progetto, mentre vagano di ranch in ranch, è trovare un posto tutto per loro a Hill Country, dove la terra costa poco: un posto piccolo, giusto qualche acro da coltivare, e poi qualche pollo, maiali, conigli. Ma le loro speranze, come "i migliori progetti predisposti da uomini e topi" (è un verso di Burns), sono destinate a sbriciolarsi. Il ritratto di un'America soffocata dalla crisi e di un'umanità gretta e gelosa nella drammatica rappresentazione di un maestro della letteratura. Scritto nel 1937 e destinato a un pubblico di uomini semplici come George e Lennie, "Uomini e topi" è una breve storia ricca di dialoghi, un piccolo gioiello di scrittura, pensato da Steinbeck per essere messo in scena in teatro e al cinema: e così è successo, sul grande schermo e a Broadway. Ma "Uomini e topi" resta prima di tutto un romanzo indimenticabile. Questa edizione propone nella nuova traduzione di Michele Mari un racconto di impegno, solitudine, speranza e perdita che resta uno dei libri più letti e più amati della letteratura mondiale. Introduzione di Luigi Sampietro.

Work Description

The second book in John Steinbeck’s labor trilogy, Of Mice and Men is a touching tale of two migrant laborers in search of work and eventual liberation from their social circumstances. Fiercely devoted to one another, George and Lennie plan to save up to finance their dream of someday owning a small piece of land. The pair seems unstoppable until tragedy strikes and their hopes come crashing down, forcing George to make a difficult decision regarding the welfare of his best friend.

The novel is set on a ranch in Soledad, CA. Author Frank Bergon recalls reading Of Mice and Men for the first time as a teenager living in the San Joaquin Valley and remembers how he saw “as if in a jolt of light the ordinary surroundings of [his] life become worthy of literature.” Steinbeck works to propagate the notion that meaningful stories emerge from the marginalized; that even those on the fringes of society can make deserving contributions to the literary canon.
