George met him there that night after he killed Curley 's wife and he took Carlson 's gun and killed him. So in Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, he uses foreshadowing throughout the novel to really show the reader key events of the Death of Curley 's wife, the death of Lennie, and the Loss of George and Lennie 's dream.

What the ranch hands did not realize is that her loneliness led her to these actions, “She put her hand behind her back and leaned against the door frame so that her body was thrown forward.” (Steinbeck 31). Being in a relationship should satisfy one's need for attention. Curley's wife considered her marriage unhealthy and did not consider Curley a good husband. Throughout the novella, Curley's wife was consistently looking for Curley and she spent most of her time in the ranch house alone.

Analysis of Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” Everyone on the community knew that Emily Grierson is mentally unstable, however none of them foresaw the crime she committed. Emily murdered her lover and kept the rotting corpse hidden for the past 30 years. The stench of a dead corpse lingers throughout the neighborhood for quite a while but Judge Stevens misclassified it as dead rats and snake killed by her slave.
