Blooms Taxonomy


George : Responsible, strong, loyal and brave.
I think that George is a heroic character because he always takes care toward Lennie. Lennie is mentally disordered therefore he needs someone to look after him.

George Milton has cared for his mentally slow friend, Lennie Small, since the death of Lennie's Aunt Clara.
They travel together to work a various amount of jobs so that one day they will have enough money to live on their own and be their own bosses.
Unfortunately, every time they have a job, Lennie gets into some trouble which forces them to run away.

4. Analysis
Like Lennie, George can be defined by a few distinct characteristics. He is short-tempered but a loving and devoted friend, whose frequent protests against life with Lennie never weaken his commitment to protecting his friend. George may be terse and impatient at times, but he never strays from his primary purpose of protecting Lennie.
Unlike Lennie, however, George does change as the story progresses. The reader learns that he is capable of change and growth during his conversation with Slim, during which he admits that he once abused Lennie for his own amusement. From this incident George learned the moral lesson that it is wrong to take advantage of the weak.

5. Synthesis
The big and the small
Weaklings never survive
The strong people overthrow the weak

6. The character I chose, George when he shot his friend by his gun. George did this so Curley and his friends won’t torture and kill Lennie slowly. I think there’re many other factors why he shot his only friend cause he knows the consequences after he killed his friend like he can’t achieve his dreams and he becomes lonely again.
