She doesn’t seem to be happy in the relationship though and walks around the farm a lot to talk to the other migrant workers. Curley is really controlling and hates her talking to other men and doesn’t even like when she leaves the house. She’s lonely because none of the other men talk to her because of Curley and they think she’s bad news. On the outside she acts really tough; “Well, you keep your place then, Nigger.
Everyone on the ranch fears repercussions from Curley when interacting with her. Everyone goes out of their way to ensure that they don’t interact with Curley’s wife. All the men figure it is in their best interest to avoid Curley’s wife as much as possible. It also does not help that Curley’s wife is extremely flirtatious. Anytime Curley’s wife appears, the men at the ranch immediately believe that she has one thought in mind.
She rejects all advances made by the men of the town, not because she is not interested, but because she is unable to truly comprehend their interest in her, calling one man who is infatuated with her beauty a “simpleton” (Marquez 197). Pilar Ternera, quite unlike the other two women, is portrayed as powerful over her own sexuality. She serves as an object of early infatuation for both Colonel Aureliano and Jose Arcadio Buendia and goes on to be the mother of both of their children (Marquez 26-31). She even manages to defend herself when one of her sons attempts to assault her, not knowing that she is in fact his mother. She serves as an oddly
All because of something they cannot control, their gender, their age, and their race. Everyone deserves an equal chance at their dream, but that is not how life works.

She only “married Curley”(88) to get away from her mother. She wanted to get away because she wanted to get as far away from her. Also she said that she could of been an famous actress but didn't because she didn't received the letter. The men on the ranch only thinks of her as an troublemaker and that's why she’s always lonely. Steinbeck introduces Curley’s wife as they were different from the white
Hurston tells the story of Janie, a black woman who because of her grandmother experiences and beliefs was forced to marry into a loveless marriage with Logan Killicks, a hard-working farmer who had 60 acres of land and could provide for Janie. This marriage ended when Janie ran away with Joe Stark, a man that she fell in love with and thought could give her the love absent between her and Logan. But Janie soon realized that her second marriage wouldn’t turn out better than her first. Joe was just as controlling and degrading as Logan. He hardly expressed his love for Janie and spoke to her like an incompetent child.
Notably, Steinbeck also isolates Curley 's wife from everyone on the ranch because she has to stay at home while everyone is out working and Curly does not want his wife to talk to anybody except for him, but since he is always working, it pressures her to talk to others and be rebellionent since she gets lonely by herself. “I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely” (Pg 85). “I get lonely, you can talk to people, but I can 't talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad.
She’s not allowed to talk to anybody in the ranch. She was always longing for attention. Her husband, Curley doesn’t want him to go outside or near the workers. Besides, nobody wants to talk to her neither, because if they do, they will get in to trouble. Just like what happened between her and Crooks when she dropped her fingers and put her hands on her hips, Crooks said, “Maybe you better go along to your own house now.
My mother is dead. My father as well. She swallowed hard” (Draper 99). The quote evinces that people can still feel hurt emotionally after if the incident happened years ago when Polly swallowed hard. This also emphasizes the long-lasting effects of the loss of an important family member.
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.

Steinbeck has created contrasting impressions of Curley’s wife. “Of MMice and mMen” is the intriguing novella, set in the 1930’s, by John Steinbeck.

Curley’s wife is disliked by many because she is the Boss’ son’s wife. They are scared of the trouble that they can get into for even talking to her so they avoid her at all costs. Throughout the whole book everybody avoids her and she can’t find any friends.
What characters say are often contradicted in most novels. An example would be such as in Of Mice and Men when George says “he never lifted a finger against me” (pg.40) therefore showing he is harmless but it is contradicted when he hurts others unintentionally. Lennie in the beginning is petting a dead mouse which he has killed “I pinched their heads a little and then they was dead-because they was so little”(pg.10). Nearing the end of the story Lennie kills his beloved puppy “Why do you got to get killed? You ain’t so little as mice”(pg.85).
Curley’s wife has many unrealized dreams. Before her death, Curley’s wife confesses her desire to become a movie star, “Coulda been in the movies, an’ had nice clothes-all them nice clothes like they wear... An’ all them nice clothes like they wear. Because this guy says I was a natural.” p.89
