In this essay, I will be exploring the characters from ‘Of Mice and Men’ and ‘An Inspector Calls.’ These two texts are centred on the relationships between the characters and how these personalities develop and change over the events that take place within their worlds.
Lennie and George are both same and have something in common. This is shown by the quote “they wear cheap and hard wearing clothes, denim jackets and jeans to match.

This is shown by the quote ‘he could, he could have kept her on instead of throwing her out. I call it tough luck’.

There is another point that stats ‘Changed by the events in the play’. This is shown by the quote ‘I know I’m to blame – and I’m desperately sorry – but I can’t believe – I won’t believe – it’s simply my fault that in the end she had committed suicide hat would be too horrible’. This showing that Sheila is growing up faster than everyone thought. Sheila has gained enough candidates so she could stand on her own two feet without any help. She never did any baby steps she had went straight to “one small step for man and one giant leap for Sheila”.
There are three dominant pairs they are Sheila and Eric, Mr and Mrs Birling and George and Lennie. Sheila seems to be stronger towards the end of the play. For example she did think that rank was important as she was taking her role from Mr Birling. The most dominate people are Mr Birling, George and Sheila but they have their strengths in their own way but they are not needed at this time.
To conclude, in both “An Inspector Calls” and “Of Mice and Men” there are similarities and differences between them. They are so much alike it is unbelievable. If you want to read any of the books or novels I would choice Of Mice and Men. What novel will you
