(Alexie 439) Another indication of Jackson's inability to tell his story happened just before the fictional sub-story began. He admits "I am a strong man and know silence is the best way of dealing with white folk." (Alexie 440) The previous quotes are examples of Jackson's unwillingness to discus events that occur within his life.

Lennie is fiercely protective of George because their companionship is one of the few things that he understands and is sure of, when others try to test this he maintains “George wouldn’t do nothing like that!”. The two men desperately cling to each other as loneliness encroaches from all sides and threatens to tear them apart however, inevitably, their dreams are blown to one side by the death of Curley’s wife as Steinbeck makes true the poem ‘even the best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley’.
Having high respect for his father, Neil is terrified trying to maintain an existence with Dickinson's concept of "doing what you're afraid to do”, never being the type of child to lie over a situation such as this one. Neil is a very emotional character. He plays it cool and shines his white teeth but behind closed doors, it's all a "show" he puts on so the boys don’t have to be concerned with his problems. Perry is
He had a chance to tell the town, and the court, that Abigail’s claims were false. Nevertheless, Proctor did not open his mouth. He feared that revealing the truth would put him down on the social ladder; innocent people had to pay, for his flaw, with their life. Proctor was a proud man who values his good name. He would do anything to keep his name.
“If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.” (A Testament of Hope, pg. 52). Not only did he stand up for unjust actions he believed in non-violence.
