The Great Depression - 758 words
The Great Depression is comparable to Lennie and George's life. I would like to give a comparison of George Milton and Lennie Small to the Great Depression.

He seemed very timid and avoided eye contact with everybody in the room. I walked up and introduced myself to George Milton and Lennie Small. George told me they were going to buck barley and they looked like good workers so I could use them. It is ...
