Who is the swamper in "Of Mice and Men"?
2 Answers | Add Yours
Candy, the old man who lost his hand in an accident on the ranch, is called the swamper. That title refers to his job of sweeping out and probably mopping the bunkhouse. Because of his disability, he can do very little around the ranch, but he can wield a broom and mop.
