Of Mice and Men Charatcers
This storyboard does not have a description.
This is George. George is a small, wiry, strict man who takes care and travels with Lennie.
"'God a'mighty, if I was alone I could live so easy. I could go get a job an' work, an' no trouble... You can't keep a job and you lose me ever' job I get.'" (Steinbeck 11)
This is Lennie. Lennie is a large, childlike migrant worker who has a mental disability. He depends on George for guidance and protection.
"'So you forgot that already did you? I gotta tell you again, do I?'...'I tried not to forget. Honest to God I did, George.'" (Steinbeck 4)
This is Candy. Candy is an old handyman who lost his hand in an accident. He is afraid that he will be fired once he can't do his chores anymore. He joins George and Lennies dream of owning a farm.
"The door opened and a tall, stoop-shouldered old man came in. He was dressed in blue jeans and he carried a big push-broom in his left hand. (Steinbeck 18)
This is Curley. Curley is a mean little guy who picks fights with bigger guys like Lennie. He recently got married and is overprotective about his wife.
"Seems like Curley is cockier'n ever since he got married." (Steinbeck 27)
This is Curleys Wife. She is given no name in the story. The men on the farm call her a "tramp," and a "tart." She dresses fancy.
"She had full, rouged lips and wide-spaced eyes, heavily made up... Her voice had a nasal, brittle quality." (Steinbeck 31)
"There was a gravity in his manner and a quiet so profound that all talk stopped when he spoke." (Steinbeck 33)
This is Slim. He is a mule driver and everyone respects him. Slim seems to be at peace with himself. He is known as the "prince" of the ranch.
