As a child, King grew fascinated with science-fiction and horror stories and soon began to write his own. The publication of his first novel, Carrie, in King was twenty-six was a huge success, allowing him to leave his job in order to write full-time. Over the course of an extraordinarily prolific career, King has published over two hundred short stories and fifty-four novels. As in The Green Mile , his stories often involve ordinary people forced to confront horrific events, demonstrating the power of human courage, solidarity, and compassion in the face of evil.
Historical Context of The Green Mile Stephen King sets his novel in the American South during the Great Depression, a severe, years-long economic downturn that began in the United States in and soon affected the rest of the world. In the United States, it led many people to lose their jobs and forced them to live in poverty.
In The Green Mile , Paul and his colleagues share a fear of losing their jobs, primarily motivated by these extremely difficult economic conditions.
While slavery was abolished in —over fifty years before the setting of the novel—the racist attitudes of many characters show that many whites proved resistant to social change, unable to accept the end of slavery and the basic equality of whites and blacks. It tells the story of two migrant field workers, George and Lennie, who are forced to seek temporary jobs. Like John Coffey, Lennie is physically strong but mentally disabled.
Unaware of his own strength, he ends up inadvertently killing a young woman. The wide corridor up the center of E Block was floored with linoleum the color of tired old limes, and so what was called the Last Mile at other prisons was called the Green Mile at Cold Mountain.
It ran, I guess, sixty long paces from south to north, bottom to top. At the bottom was the restraint room. At the top end was a T-junction.
A left turn meant life -- if you called what went on in the sunbaked exercise yard life, and many did; many lived it for years, with no apparent ill effects. Thieves and arsonists and sex criminals, all talking their talk and walking their walk and making their little deals. A right turn, though -- that was different.
First you went into my office where the carpet was also green, a thing I kept meaning to change and not getting around to , and crossed in front of my desk, which was flanked by the American flag on the left and the state flag on the right. On the far side were two doors. One led into the small W.
This was where you ended up when you walked the Green Mile. It was a small door -- I had to duck my head when I went through, and John Coffey actually had to sit and scoot. You came out on a little landing, then went down three cement steps to a board floor.
It was a miserable room without heat and with a metal roof, just like the one on the block to which it was an adjunct. It was cold enough in there to see your breath during the winter, and stifling in the summer. At the execution of Elmer Manfred -- in July or August of '30, that one was, I believe -- we had nine witnesses pass out.
On the left side of the storage shed -- again -- there was life. Tools all locked down in frames crisscrossed with chains, as if they were carbine rifles instead of spades and pickaxes , dry goods, sacks of seeds for spring planting in the prison gardens, boxes of toilet paper, pallets cross-loaded with blanks for the prison plate-shop On the right -- once again -- death. Old Sparky his ownself, sitting up on a plank platform at the southeast comer of the storeroom, stout oak legs, broad oak arms that had absorbed the terrorized sweat of scores of men in the last few minutes of their lives, and the metal cap, usually hung jauntily on the back of the chair, like some robot kid's beanie in a Buck Rogers comic-strip.
A cord ran from it and through a gasket-circled hole in the cinderblock wall behind the chair.
Off to one side was a galvanized tin bucket. If you looked inside it, you would see a circle of sponge, cut just right to fit the metal cap. Before executions, it was soaked in brine to better conduct the charge of direct-current electricity that ran through the wire, through the sponge, and into the condemned man's brain. Dexter meets Mr. Smith in this wildly compulsive debut thriller. Reader Reviews.
