Of Mice and Men, Character: Lennie
Lennie is a big strong man with a mental handicap who is simple minded and obsessed with touching soft things - a recipie for disaster.
Description of Lennie's actions: Page 6 "I could pet it with my thumb while we walked along," said Lennie.
Description of Lennie's looks: Page 2 "A huge man, shapeless face, with large pale eyes, with wide sloping shoulders, and walks heavily, dragging his feet... his arms did not swing at his sides but hung loosely"
Lennie's effect on another: Page 91 "Oh that's nice," and he stroked harder. "Oh that's nice." "Look out you'll mess it." And she cried angrily, "You stop it now, you'll mess it all up." she jerked her head sideways, and Lennie's fingers closed on her hair and hung on. "Let go," she cried. "You let go!" ... "She struggled violently under his hands." "And she continued to struggle and her eyes were wild with terror. He shook her then and he was angry with her. "Don't go yellin," he said, and he shook her; and her body flopped like a fish. And then she was sitll, for Lennie had broken her neck."
