Paragraph 2: First Example Firstly, Curley’s wife wants someone to socialize with because she is feeling very lonely. “ “Why can’t I talk to you? I never get to talk to nobody.
Marguerite went through a terrible time in her life so detrimental to her that she didn 't talk, Not a single word. As marguerite grew and got older she lived that way without any words, regardless of who tried to help her. Although Marguerite was remarkably intelligent and a notably nice girl she chooses to block the world out instead because it was easier. Maya Angelou better known as Marguerite in the short story “Mrs.Flowers” has been through a traumatic assault in her young age. Marguerite has shut many people out, until she has a discussion with Mrs.Flowers who shows her that shutting people out is not how you handle situations you do not want or know how to deal with.
However, through the development of Curley’s wife as a character, Steinbeck demonstrates the theme of loneliness and its deadly qualities through her struggles in life and death. Steinbeck’s presentation of Curley’s wife leads to a misconception of her personality and dehumanizes her character. While lacking a name, Curley’s wife exhibits “a deep strong and eventually weak side” (Taja 2). By not using her real name, Steinbeck demonstrates the lack of respect that she receives at the ranch by the men. Depriving her of even human identification, the characters treat her as if she is not a person that they can interact with, rather a danger of losing their jobs that they carefully and strategically avoid.
In the Novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, a variety of relationships, as well as the characters in them, meet a grizzly end. This is apparent in the deaths of both Lennie and Curley’s wife. Lennie’s dependency on Gerogoe led to him not being able to function and make rational decisions on his own. While Curley’s wife had no support from her husband and gave none in return leading to a lonely and loveless marriage, causing her to seek companionship wherever she could find it. Their unhealthy relationships led to their demise due to the lack of support they were receiving from their partners emotionally.
Mayella grew up with an abusive father, so she never learns how actions can have consequences. She doesn’t know how to see the harm in what she does, and in the book it said, “Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed,” (page 323). Mayella destroyed one of the only things she cared about, and that’s because she didn’t learn the value of the truth. Mayella Ewell’s life is made up of many lousy things which all come together and shape her as the erroneous girl that she is. She is uneducated, has no values, and because of this, doesn’t deserve to be treated with equality.
The short story is rather entertaining because you have to think past what the author writes, and create for yourself your own depiction of what the meaning is. One example is when Mrs. Mallard says, “free, free, free!” (Chopin). The reader would expect Mrs. Mallard to be upset at the loss of her husband, but in fact, she is actually feeling relief from it. Mrs. Mallard is happy because she is now free from living under her husband. Another example of Kate Chopin’s usage of irony is at the end when its said, “ they said she died of heart disease- of joy that kills” in a since they are right.
The relation between George and Lennie are not same all the time. Some time they are like father and son because father is mostly protective and caring, George is also same as he saves Lennie from trouble and give advice what to do whenever he is in danger, so George is like father of Lennie. On the other hand, George is also like mother of Lennie as he cares about Lennie’s health as well as George is also like a close friend of Lennie as he gives good advices like staying out from Curley’s wife and take care of job ticket which is important their job. so, we can say their relationship are not constant, some time George is like a father, mother or a close friend of Lennie, it depends on which situation they
I am Outcast” (4). This displays how Melinda felt like she did not belong, and like she was not loved.

Melinda was completely left out and was missing support from her family and friends. She lacks love and belonging, and this makes Melinda see herself as alone and vulnerable, which makes her life
Their relationship is really weird because nobody really understands why George takes care of Lennie, but for him Lennie is like a responsibility and also means companion. This is reflected when George said this to Lennie: “No, Lennie, I ain’t mad. I never been mad, and I aint now. That’s a thing I want you to know.” Lennie loves George, he is like a role model for him and he admires him. In the novel that is demonstrated when Lennie says to George: “But I would eat none, I’d leave it all for you George.” With those words Lennie demonstrates the admiration and loyalty he has for his best friend.
Another feminist perspective is the idea that the contribution of the women in the society does not count. The idea is evident when water ignores his sister's advice (Shelley, pg. 20-77). The women are therefore seen as people who cannot give any pieces of advice in whatever manner. In most cases in the novel, the women are treated as victims.
Section five – GoodCurley’s wife (Can she be redeemed) Curley’s wife is the only one to blame for her actions; she is always taking her anger out on people, meanly Crooks. She never say’s sorry or asks for forgiveness, although she is the only female on the ranch Steinbeck wants us to feel sympathy for her as she cannot get along with known body and she’s a house wife that’s extremely isolated with no one to convert. This is in evidence when she say’s “I get awful lonely.” This indicates that she has nothing and no one, when she say’s awful this shows that she’s strongly certain with her point and she wants someone to talk to. This is due to the fact that she is flirtatious, Xenophobic and malicious. Despite the fact that she wants companionship
