Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

4 April 2015
An examination of the relationship between George and Lennie in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men.

This paper gives a character sketch of the two main characters George Milton and Lennie Small, discusses their dependencies on each other and determines how their characters affect the plot and flow of the story.
One important point in establishing the importance of George and Lennie’s character in the story and their dependence on each other is through their character sketches. George Milton was illustrated in the novel as small and quick, dark of face, with restless eyes and sharp strong features while Lennie is described to physically big in form and is said to be as big as a bull (Planet Papers 2002). George may be small in physical stature, he compensates for his deficiency in built by possessing the mental ability to think rationally and logically, which Lennie obviously does not have, since he was a mentally-challenged individual. Lennie, although unable to comprehend complex ideas and thoughts, has a special ability to care and love for those people who value him for whatever he is, and George is evidently the only person who cared for him despite his mental deficiency and shortcomings in character.
