Description

Eagrán álainn Gaeilge den tseanchlasaic le John Steinbeck Of Mice and Men a céadfhoilsíodh in 1937, ceann de mhórshaothair na haoise seo caite.

Beirt spailpíní iad George agus Lennie, i gCalafóirne i dtríochaidí an chéid seo caite. Fathach urrúnta ‘ar chiall na bpáistí’ é Lennie agus bíonn George ag tabhairt aire dó. Agus cé nach bhfuil acu de mhaoin an tsaoil ach an t-éadach ar a ndroim, tá aisling acu – feirm bheag a cheannach dóibh féin agus a bheith ‘beo ar mhéith na tíre’. Driſters in search of work, George and his childlike friend Lennie, have nothing in the world except the clothes on their back — and a dream that one day they will have some land of their own.

Eventually they find work on a ranch in California’s Salinas Valley, but their hopes are dashed as Lennie — struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy — becomes a victim of his own strength.
