OF MICE AND MEN

By: Nick Zappone

Lennie

Description

A large, lumbering, childlike migrant worker. Due to his mild mental disability, Lennie completely depends upon George, his friend and traveling companion, for guidance and protection. The two men share a vision of a farm that they will own together, a vision that Lennie believes in wholeheartedly. Gentle and kind, Lennie nevertheless does not understand his own strength. His love of petting soft things, such as small animals, dresses, and people’s hair, leads to disaster.

I added a picture of a Rabbit because Lennie's dream is to raise a farm with rabbits.

The theme of the story is Fraternity and the Idealized Male Friendship.

Lennie represents this theme because him a George have a very strong friendship. Lennie has mental disabilities and George has to look after him. Lennie trusts George with a lot of things. Their dream is to raise a farm of bunnies together.
