Of Mice and Men
Characterization is the technique a writer uses to create and
reveal the personalities and qualities of the characters in a written work.
A writer may describe a character's physical appearance and situation.
He may also attempt to reveal a character's thoughts, or show the
reactions of other characters. A writer may be very descriptive or be
lacking in his description of the character. George Milton is illustrated

Discontent" (1961), and "Travels with Charley"(1962). Steinbeck
