Description

Arguably one of the most widely acclaimed literary masterpieces, it is no surprise that Miguel de Cervantes’s El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha left a cultural legacy that has influenced the work of authors, artists, and filmmakers across the globe. Whether intentional of John Steinbeck or not, analysis of his literary work Of Mice and Men reveals various parallels between the two novels that extend from the complicated, transformative relationship between the two travelling protagonists of each novel to the lack of emphasis on female characters. A thorough evaluation of quotations, character interactions, and recurring themes and motifs divulged two tales that are highly reflective of one another.
