The Weaknesses Of George In John Steinbeck's Of Mice And Men

Satisfactory Essays
George has many strengths, however probably his greatest strength is his brain. He always knows what to say and what not to say, however Lennie doesn’t so George always finds himself having to help Lennie out of a situation. George tries to stay on everybody's good side as to keep Lennie and him out of trouble. ”In a panic, Lennie looked at George for help. “He can do anything you tell him,” said George.” Here is a great example on page 22 of George helping Lennie when he doesn’t know what to say. George tries to lay low and keep out of trouble, even if it’s difficult, because of Lennie. George tries to keep calm and keep going when it becomes hard, because he knows that Lennie depends on him and won’t be able to survive if he wasn’t there.
