Candy finds them and they discuss their plans for the farm with Crooks, who cannot resist asking them if he can hoe a garden patch on the farm albeit scorning its possibility.
The strangeness of their partnership is evident both to the reader and to the people who George and Lennie encounter. His love for soft things conspires against him, mostly because he does not know his own strength, and eventually becomes his undoing. His insight, intuition, kindness and natural authority draw the other ranch hands automatically towards him, and he is significantly the only character to fully understand the bond between George and Lennie.

Perhaps Steinbeck realized that he had bitten off more than he could chew--as frequently happens to creative writers. I hate to tell you how many times I saw him do it.
The characters are composites to a certain extent. He is very jealous and protective of his wife and immediately develops a dislike toward Lennie.
There is writing promoting social change, writing punishing injustice, writing in celebration of heroism, but always that base theme. I worked in the same country that the story is laid in.
Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. The men spend most of their time indoors, either playing cards or talking. There are shorter means, many of them.
