She is disliked because of many different aspects, and no one ever believes a word that she says.”Think the sun is a flower, that blooms for just one hour” (Bradbury), chanted Margot; She was soon faced with disbelief, William cried out that she was not the author of that poem whilst she in return argued with him.
Throughout the novella, Curley's wife was consistently looking for Curley and she spent most of her time in the ranch house alone. The two were never together and the only time they were Curley was nasty to her, which drove Curley's wife to feel alone, “I don’t like Curley. He ain’t a nice fella.” (Curley's wife 89). In reality, the only reason she tried to talk to the ranch hands was because she wanted to have a conversation with one who would not be nasty to
As she only had a “brute” of a father and a “weak” mother, it would have been hard for Veronica to look up to any role models. Despite her father’s abusive nature and the responsibility of raising her siblings on her shoulders, Veronica still managed to stay faithful to her family and even jeopardized her chances of making something of herself for them. As she has never seen anything aside from her family, all she would aspire to is having a family of her own as that is all she has ever known. This partly explains why, later, she refuses to leave the village with Okeke. This also contributes to her life being labelled as a “terrible waste” because she probably did not have any outlandish aspirations as a small child and, consequently, could not form “regular” aspirations as a young adult.

“Curley’s wife stands as a glaringly bitter and ironic illus-tration of the immorality of narrow minds and the social conditions that produce them” (Hart 39). No one on the ranch gives Curley’s wife the respect that a young, beautiful woman deserves, but she also has been treated so low her whole life that she does not demand respect. For exam-ple, “Curley’s wife is not given a proper name. Apparently she does not merit it;” Curley’s wife never takes notice to her name never being used, which is

Sula came back to Nel’s house so she can see her and remind her of their fun past and the never ending friendship, but while Sula was setting there she realized that Nel had a powerful thing that she didn't have which was: her family. She thought about all the sacrifices she mad so she could have what Nel has but she never did. As Jude walked in Nel’s husband, Sula realized how much attention he gave Nel.

As Sula felt comfortable around the house she started looking for her desires, “They had been down on all fours naked, not touching except their lips right down there on the floor” (Morrison, p.105).
