Lennie Small is a character that readers are drawn to right from the beginning of the book. His innocence stands out from the grimey coverings of loneliness and hopelessness that the other characters wear. The reason Lennie is so innocent is because he has a mental handicap, one that prevents him from understanding complex human emotions such as guilt, or concepts such as death. In addition Lennie has trouble remembering things, “" I tried and tried [to remember]...but it didn't do not good." Consequently, Lennie has trouble fitting in with society. Ultimately his mental disability is what leads to Lennie's demise at the end of the book. Another trait that is an essential part of Lennie's innocent character is his devotion to his closest friend George. In fact, the only times Lennie is shown to be angry is when George is insulted or threatened. When Crooks, the crippled, black, stable hand, implies bad things about George, this devotion is clearly shown. “Suddenly Lennie's eyes centered and grew quiet, and mad. He walked dangerously toward Crooks. 'Who hurt George?' he demanded" When it comes to George, Lennie would deviate from the normal passive motives of his persona. More support can be found when George is the only one who can convince Lennie to “get him[Curly]” when Curly attacks him, as well as being the only one to stop him. Perhaps the most prominent support for Lennie's childlike innocence is in his utter belief of George and his dream. No matter how

But after Lennie accidentally murdered his bosses wife from touching her hair because it was soft, he ran away. He didn’t know how to handle his strength abilities. Everyone on the ranch wanted to kill him but George didn’t so George killed him to protect Lennie. Since Lennie is clueless, forgetful, and has remorse for his actions, he has trouble getting his way through life and makes many mistakes on accident. Not understanding a lot of things makes Lennie seem like an innocent and dumb-witted character.

is true in the extreme for Stanley, he does what he wishes and disregards the consequences. It is not a motto he actually employs towards the remaining characters; thinking only of himself, he does not care if anyone else is "comfortable" or not. Through dialogue such as this, Williams asserts to the reader/audience the fact that Stanley inherently fails to take into account the repercussions his own requirements and desires have on others. He is in total control and the only person endowed with power; therefore the only person he takes into consideration - and the only person his wife is allowed to take
For example, Carter is the “missionary gone rogue” (Duffy and Gibbs ?). On Presidential missions, he tends to disobey Presidential instructions, becoming a trustee rather than a delegate. Another character is Nixon, who constantly yearns and attempts to get back into the action of Russian and Chinese foreign policy conflicts. With this in mind, the Presidents are more effectively presented as a conglomeration, the larger picture of the club. Founded by Washington, its status was solidified by Truman and Hoover, and these relationships gained official legitimacy under Nixon’s presidency, wherein he ordained Executive Order 11456.

Although there are many reasons as to why this could be true, one that stands out is his trait of being caring.
