Describe lennie's physical and mental characteristics
Answers 1Add Yours
Lennie is a very big man and has incredible strength.
Mentally, Lennie is childlike; he's trusting and innocent, but most of all he's helpless and dependent on George for all of his needs. Thus, he has a blind devotion to George, and is as loyal as his mental capacity allows him to be. Lennie has an over powering love for soft things; he wants to hold things that are soft (bunnies, lady's dresses, and young puppies), he wants to stroke and pet them. This compulsion, in addition to his great strength causes a lot of unintended harm, beginning with the mouse and culminating in the murder of Curly's wife.
