In Of Mice and Men, Curley’s wife can be analyzed as being lonely and self-obsessed. Curley’s wife is very lonely because she is the only female on the ranch, and Curley doesn’t pay much attention to her. Curley would much rather talk about himself, and the only reason she married Curley was to get away from her mother. Curley’s wife had a dream of being in the show business, but she believed her mother sabotaged her career which again is why she married Curley. Curley’s wife’s loneliness also prompts her to become self-obsessed. Curley’s wife has a need for attention, so she flirts with all the guys on the ranch. Because she is self-obsessed, she is unable to see any faults in herself and doesn’t see any harm in flirting with the other men.
