Of Mice And Man
George is a small man with strong features. He has slender arms and a small bony
nose. He takes care of his friend Lennie and tdes to keep him out of trouble.

They travel from job to job and save their money in hopes to buy their own farm.

Lennie is just the opposite of George. He is a big man with large pale eyes,
wide shoulders and walks kind of gaudy as a bear might walk. Lennie is a bit
retarded and he trusts George to make all the decisions for him. He anxiously
waits for the day when he and George will buy their own farm. Candy is an old
man with only one hand. He probably does the cooking and cleaning and he likes
to gossip and tell stories to new men. He has an old dog who used to help work
around the farm and the men are constantly nagging him to let them shoot the dog
and put it out of it's misery. Curley is the boss' son. He's a thin young man
with brown eyes and a head of curly hair. 's married and doesn't pay much
attention [email protected] wife, which uses problems requently- Curley is insecure about
his height and hates bigger men. He's all the time picking fights to try and
prove whose the t. Crooks is a crippled blackman who envies Lennie and George.

He"too/ would like to invest in their farm. The men are always picking on

Crooks and Curley's wife threatens to have him hung all the time. The boss is
always taking his anger out on him. Curley's wife is young, beautiful and very
lonely. She is the only female on the ranch and she teases the men to amuse
herself. Her husband considers her nothing more than an object. Her dreams were
one day to become an actress; instead she manied Curley because she had no way
to support herself. I believe the most important character in the book Of Mice
and Men is George Milton. He took the responsibility upon himself to look after

Lennie and that in itself is a job. George is always trying to keep him out of
trouble and sees that they are never without work and food. Together they plan
to put their earnings together and buy a farm of their own, George shares his
dreams with Lennie and offers him a place in a society o does not want the

Lennie's of the world. In the climax of the book George has to make a decision
he will never forget for the rest of his life. It takes every ounce of courage
he has to kill his frienq but he believes he is doing it out of love and for the
best interest of his friend. CONFLICT RESOLUTION But Candy said exciedly,
"We oughfta let'im get away. You don't know that Curley. Curley gon'ta
wanta get'im lynched. Curley'll get'im killed." To spare Lennie from any
additional pain that Curley might bestow upon him, George took a gun and
directed Lennie to turn his head and shot him in the back of his head. George
had once again come to his rescue, but he would never again have to bother with

Lennie and his small mind. SUMMARY OF MICE AND MEN is about two men who travel
tog from place to pla hey have dreams to one-day buy a farm of their own. George
and Lennie had to remain a team in order to make their dreams come true. This
was a job in itself for George because Lennie was a bit retarded and seemed to
get into trouble very easily. George fulfilled the responsibility of taking care
of Lennie after his aunt had died. Lennie is a big man and unknowingly to
himself he squeezes things he loves too hard and causes their death. Lennie in
fact goes so far as to accidentally kill Cudey's wife. Once it becomes obvious
to everyone else on the farm what Lennie had done, the men set out to hang him.

Because of the death of Curley's wifegeorge knew what he had to do. He had to
get to Lennie before the others did. George killed Lennie out of sympathy for

Lennie and out of the aggravation he caused himself. George believed that Lennie
was just trouble for himself and him included. George could not deal with the
responsibility of caring for Lennie anymore, so he went to the place he told

Lennie to go in case
