The time setting takes two places: the stream and its jungle and the cattle ranch. Both locations are in Soledad region in California. The story starts and end in the stream location, but the majority of plot and the climax happen in the cattle ranch. From my perspective, the time setting has an essential function in the ovella, because the boys will not be desperate for a pitiful job without any depression time. The location setting acts only as a physical container for the story; it can take place anywhere. B- Plot The plot of this novella follows the easy order.

In the road scene, there are some vibrant descriptions, however we hear the characters speak more than we see the vibrant details of the location. The story is basic but complete with significances. The last scene touches one’s heart when George has to eliminate Lennie due to the fact that of merci. There is very little women in the story however A. H. 3 those who existed as sex symbols.
