-Of Mice and Men-

George Milton

George is a small, intelligent man who looks after his friend Lennie. He is a migrant worker who dreams of someday owning his own land, but he realises the difficulty of making this dream come true. George gives Lennie advice and tries to watch out for him, ultimately taking responsibility for not only his life but also his death.


‘You do bad things and I got to get you out’

‘An’ you ain’t gonna do no bad things like you done in Weed, neither’

‘Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world.’

“We travel together,” said George coldly

‘You gonna have trouble with that Curley guy’

‘I have never seen no piece of jail bait worse than her. You leave her be’

‘If I was even a little bit smarter, I’d have ay own little place, an’ I’d be bringin’ in my own crops, ‘stead of doin’ all the work and not getting what come up outta the ground.” George fell silent.’

(Just after they have discussed their dream) ‘George sat entranced with his own pictures’

(when he comes back from town) ‘Jesus, seems like I can’t go away for a minute’

(when he comes back from town)

“Jesus, seems like I can’t go away for a minute”. Shows his responsibility. Foreboding as we understand whenever he is not there bag things could happen just like when Lennie and Curley’s wife are alone in the barn. After Lennie kills Curley’s wife George said, “I’ll work my month an’ I’ll take my fifty bucks an’ I’ll stay all night in some lousy cat house… An’ then I’ll come back an’ work another month an’ I’ll have fifty bucks more

‘You… an’ me. Ever’body gonna be nice to you. Ain’t gonna be no more trouble.’

‘The hand shook violently, but his face set and his hand steadied’
