She did not experience satisfaction or self fulfilment in the relationship, and their conversations were loveless and passionless. When Logan ordered Janie from chore to chore, she says nothing but, “Ah’ll cut de p’taters fuh yuh”(Hurston 17). This portrays how Janie has not yet released how she feels about being tied down into the marriage. The symbolism of the mule comes into play during Janie’s marriage with Logan. In American Folklore mules are silent creatures that bear the burden, yet they are still stubborn and unpredictable.
Curley's wife is the loneliest character because her husband does not pay attention to her. Curley's Wife is the loneliest character in Of Mice and Men. Throughout the book Curley's Wife's name is never stated, as if no one cared to ask. She felt destined for a life of fame and fortune. Curley ignored her throughout the book and just simply does not care about her.
The woman, though she was once sought after by many, is left in a pathetic state after her husband dies. Within her mind, she can only walk “alone in brilliant circles to the end” (28). The “brilliant circles” are only the illusions in the woman’s mind that she can continue living her comfortable life that is full of happiness (28). Since it is not reality, the people around her cannot help her get over her grief and come to accept the world around her. The woman can only progress through her life alone and isolated within her illusions, without any resemblance to the bright woman she once

Celie lacks self-confidence mainly from the treatment she has experienced throughout her life. Celie does not understand her own worth because of the abuse and lack of love in her life. Celie’s thoughts about herself are visible when she says, “The most beautiful woman I ever saw. She more pretty then my mama. She bout ten thousand times more prettier then me” (Walker 6).
Edna, ideally, is a great role model to look up to in today’s world for filling that brave, young woman role to not let society shape her, despite the few occurrences she had intimate moments with multiple men or her carelessness towards her children. Edna is definitely not the ideal wife or mother role, but she could be known as being a great leader for rebelling against society and the general idea of a general woman’s characteristics- others never influenced her decisions and she only ever followed what she felt best suited herself, which is what made her the strong woman she expressed herself as throughout the
“Curley’s wife stands as a glaringly bitter and ironic illus-tration of the immorality of narrow minds and the social conditions that produce them” (Hart 39).

“Orual even shows a perverted, possessive love in her relationship with Bardia” (Saunders 6).
