Of Mice and Men

The sitting of the novel

The setting here is very specific. Do the events of the story only apply to this particular place and time, or can the novel be thought of as universally applying to humans everywhere?

Steinbeck always have universal themes in his story. Although the isolation of itinerant workers lends itself to depression era California, themes of longing, friendship, and sense of place are universal.
