Of Mice and Men

The Character of George

George is a short, intelligent man who cares for his mentally ill brother Lennie. He loves him to death but on occasion he talks about how his life would be so much easier if he didn't have the responsibility of taking care of Lennie. George is motivated to keeping Lennie safe and out of harm and bringing them to the farm that they both wish to live on one day. Although George is often told how his dream farm is just a waste of time it is Lennies childish faith in believing that they will one day go to that farm that keep George in believing the same thing. In all to George family is family and you never turn your back on family.


I chose these quotes because I think they represent each theme clearly.

I Won't Give Up - Jason Mraz Lyrics

I Won't Give Up!

I chose this song because George never gives up on his brother even though he is difficult sometimes he is still patient with Lennie and still loves him no matter his faults even when everything may go wrong George still gives Lennie all the love he can.
