What is loneliness? Well it is feeling sadness because one has no friends or company. In John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men Curley's Wife is perceived as a tart, or an extremely flirty person. In reality she is lonelier than any other character. She lives on the ranch with everyone else and just wants to make friends but everyone fears Curley and tries to avoid her.
Curley 's Wife has used the quote ' 'Nigger... I could get you strung up on a tree so easy it ain 't even funny."

I could get you strung up on a tree so easy it ain’t even funny.” She says she could get him strung up, not do it herself and that shows weakness, she won’t do anything, she just threatens people because she’s Curley’s wife. She even says it out in the open that she’s lonely “I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely.” These are good examples of loneliness and isolation because Curley keeps her isolated by controlling who she talks to and loneliness because nobody wants to talk to her because of Curley threatening them

Curley’s wife believes that she can take control and overpower Crooks.
“Curleys wife” (Pg 79) represents how they do not respect her enough to call her by her own name showing how much she lacks an identity of her own and is treated as a piece of property to her husband making it hard for her to do what she wants without being critiqued by the men on the farm. Another way Steinbeck objectifys Curley 's wife is by using specific vocabulary “Don’t you even take a look at that bitch. I don 't care what she says and what she does. I seen em poison before, but I never seen no piece of jailbait worse than her. You leave her be.” (Pg 32) Through this quote Steinbeck reveals sexism between Curley 's wife and the guys on the ranch, on the grounds that George calls Curley 's wife a bitch, which is used as an insult towards her.
Her attempts at tricking the inspector falls short as her own sister and her husband deny her pursuit and disdain her. “…women get strange ideas at times…she is a dangerous and shameless woman” (73).
