Abstract

This research aims to deconstruct the essential images of women during the period of Puritans that reside in the deeply mythologized text of John Steinbeck (Of Mice and Men) and this paper will also analyze how biblical texts are paradigms of inferiority, inasmuch as sacred texts that define women as bodies of sexuality. Henceforth, this research can elucidate the vague side of women in comparison with religious texts in “Of mice and Men†.We will analyze Steinbeck’s collective consciousness from his texts in order to understand his personal background on women that means we will also grasp the position of women that lived harshly during the momentum of Great Depression.
