Why is it a good idea to write a report on changes that occur in peoples' lives, such as how they change, etc.?

In literature, as in life, changes usually occur as a result of a major event. Understanding why people change helps us understand the nature of these changes, which, in turn, helps us understand ourselves.

Of Mice and Men is a good literary example of this, Think about the character of George. By the end of the story he has changed to the extent that he is willing to kill his best friend for his best friend's own good. At the beginning of the story he probably wouldn't have been able to do this. The experiences he has lead him to this difficult point.
