Remembering back to plot in Romeo and Juliet, Romeo states that his objective in traveling to the party was to rendezvous his ex- girlfriend - Rosaline.
In The House on Mango Street Esperanza said, “But what difference does it make? He wasn't anything to her… Just another brazer who didn't speak English. Just another wetback. You know the kind. The ones who always look ashamed (Cisneros 66).” Esperanza was referring to one of her friends named Marin, who was poor, and she was dancing with a guy, Geraldo, who was of the upper class.

The continuous flow of sin comes next when he impregnates Gretchen out of wedlock and chooses to run from her rather than stick around and be the father. For this occurrence, he again shows little regret or repentance. After Gretchen’s brother learns of her actions with Faust, he meets Faust in the streets and Faust agrees to a duel that ends with Valentine dying. Throughout the whole poem, Faust continues to make decision based on the impulses he has and continuously following Mephistopheles wherever he leads with very little signs of regret. I relate this to what Daniel Wieman was saying in his presentation when he spoke about the decisions Faust was making.

This suggests that Curley 's wife could bring light to the dark part of George; the part that, in the end, was responsible for Lennie 's death. In another scene, the scene between Lennie and Curley 's wife shortly before her death, the lighting again played an important role in the way she is perceived.
