. . half emerged from the soil, and scarcely more articulate.” Thus it is given that each of the three major characters is encased in his or her individual silences.

In the routinely racist world of 1930s California, Crooks’ colour is his defining feature, as Candy explains, ‘Ya see the stable buck’s a nigger’. However, he follows this definition with an additional description of how he is a ‘nice fella’.
