During a horseshoe tournament Candy’s wife approaches Lennie in the barn. They begin a conversation, which she wanted, and she tries to socialize with Lennie. Lennie keeps trying to avoid her which leads her angrily yelling at Lennie. “Ain’t I got a right to talk to nobody?”(Steinbeck 87) This quote shows Curley’s wife’s dream of socialization when she tries to talk to Lennie. By showing anger she shows how tired and desperate she is to get attention and to communicate with others.
The other men have labeled her a “tart” and other names later in the story. She also “has the eye” which means she’s a flirt even though she is married she tends to go around the farm looking for other men. The men think of her as property and and give her no respect or dignity. Later in the story, Curley’s wife also seems to be lonely and wanting attention. “ ‘I get lonely,’ she said.
The book gives examples that show us that at this time, people didn’t realize that differences make us special. There are also other people in the book that are discriminated, but they are discriminated nearly as much as Crooks is. I think that it is unlawful, even at this time period. Discrimination is for people don’t know that differences make us
It recommends disobedience and defiance on the part of young people.” This statement is disagreeable because although Huck does break the federal law as a moral, he does it for the right reasons. Therefore, making the great American classic not such a radical and darkly bitter book after all. In her essay,

As they adapt to their new ranch, they experience many obstacles and meet new people. As Lennie is a mentally slower but physically strong and George is intelligent but physically weaker, they benefit off of each other's strengths and weaknesses. Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men reveals the harmful psychological effects that alienation, whether it is self alienation or forced alienation, may generate through the characterization of Curleyś wife, Crooks, and Candy. Like many of the other characters, Crooks is forced into isolation. Crooks experiences force alienation from his fellow workers on the ranch, causing him to become obscure and astringent.
Imagine being able to tell someone to do something and they did it, no matter how awful it was. In John Steinbeck's emotional novel, Of Mice and Men, a grown man named Lennie is mentally challenged has a hard time telling what is right and what is wrong. He has a caretaker named George who has a short temper, however he tries his best to be patient with him. When George loses his temper it often cause Lennie to want to run away. Through all this they share a dream home where they can leave and go to the circus whenever they want.
Trust is of the utmost importance in these conditions, knowing who it would be wise to bestow it upon, and to what extent. It is shown that Lennie trusts George implicitly, *insert the quote about the Sacramento River, you know the one* and as such, it’s safe to say that while George may not be able to trust Lennie to stay out of any trouble, he won’t be turning his back any time soon. However, an unfortunate impediment of trust, is inherent discrimination against those who are different, which while from a survival standpoint the thought process is understandable, It never did anyone good to make enemies. Blatant discrimination is exhibited numerous times throughout the story, seeing as nobody seems to trust Curley’s Wife or Crooks. *some quotes exhibiting this pls, go find them* Discrimination is rooted in a multitude of ideas, primarily those of culture and such things, which would bring about racist and sexist discrimination.
When his mother doesn´t have enough money for three circus tickets and choose to stay outside in the blazing sun waiting for him and his brother, he sees her behaviour as ‘’blinding, overwhelming, self-sacrificial love’’ that demands ‘’a debt of love’’ which he is unwilling to pay. In the ending of the book, it´s clear that he cannot escape her influence and judgement because he is aware that she ‘’can stop loving him’’ and realises that he is bound to her. Coetzee does not like his father. His father was a soldier, and played rugby and cricket, but he is not excellent in any of these three things,
