Curley's Wife Monologue

133 Words1 Page
One part that stood out to me when reading the book, was the scene between Lennie and Curley’s wife in the barn. This scene was when I realized that she was one of my favorite characters in the book. It was nice to hear her talk about how she had a great fantasy of being a movie actress, but this was thwarted by a bad talent agent, and her mother. Like other men on the ranch, Curley’s wife suffers from lack of love and attention, and also from having her dreams sacrificed for Curley. You understand then, that she has reasoning for her wandering around the ranch, looking for someone to talk to. She really isn’t looking to cheat on Curley, but rather have a real conversation with someone; someone who understands her.
