Résumé La solitude, le bien et le mal, le conflit des classes, ces points de vue ne peuvent pas tous révéler complètement le sens thématique de Des souris et des hommes. A partir de la signification méhaphorique du titre, cet article interprète le sens thématique du roman, à savoir que les hommes et les souris ont la même destinée et qu’aucun ne peut échapper à sa destinée.
Mots clés : le sens thématique, la signification métaphorique, la destinée
