  1. Look particularly at the character description of Lennie at this site.
    Also read the Themes and Motifs section.

  2. There is some background information on Lenny's lack of control of his own strength. Before they got to the town, Lennie had already 'attacked' a woman in a sense. Also, he accidentally killed all the mice and puppies, once again hinting towards his lack of self-control. His attachment towards soft objects also plays a role.
