An example of a relationship without caring or connection to the other person. His anger and desire to fight is seen when he fights Lennie, a mentally handicapped man on the ranch. Curley’s wife does not care about Curley which is seen when she appears happy when Lennie breaks Curley’s hand in their fight. Curley’s wife says “think I don’t like to talk to somebody every once in awhile” (p.77) meaning that she feels being with Curley is like talking to no one, because they never talk about her feelings or concerns about life. Another example of their uncaring relationship is when Curley’s wife dies and when he sees her dead body is not sad about losing her but simply uses this as a reason to fight the person who did it.
As the wife of the son’s boss, she is isolated by many other men, but is not able to make any contact with them due to her jealous husband. As a result of this, she gets frustrated and upset that she is not allowed to talk to anyone nor to be with anyone except with herself and her husband. Then she was rejected by the men the more
The character does not find a revelation or resolution to his internal conflict. Lennie ruins his and George’s plan to move away from the ranch and pursue their dreams, because he kills Curley’s wife and can no longer get away with his mistakes.

The narrator shows no empathy for Robert’s devastating loss; instead he chooses to focus on physical factors of Robert’s marriage to Buelah. He is too preoccupied with the idea that she was perfectly content with Robert never seeing her physical appearance as well as with the fact that she was a woman of color. Robert’s metaphorical blindness is shown here through his inability to empathize with Robert on his life, marriage, and loss. Instead all he could do was pity his life and accept the fact that it “was beyond [his] understanding”
Mildred hasn’t surrounded herself with loving, understanding people. She lacks the feeling of love, and even though her husband, Montag, cares about her, he is barely home. Her friends don’t even care about themselves because them, too, are emotionally disconnected, and couldn't care less about their miserable lives. Montags feelings are shallow and mediocre, he used to love her, but not the person she has become over time. On page 44, the conversation between Montag and Mildred was very bland, and even though they are communicating, they aren’t really communication.
With her controlling husband and being the only woman on the farm, Curley’s wife is constantly ignored or dismissed,“ Well you keep away from her, ‘cause she's a rat trap if I ever seen one. You let Curley take the rap. He let himself in for it. Glove fulla
“Curleys wife” (Pg 79) represents how they do not respect her enough to call her by her own name showing how much she lacks an identity of her own and is treated as a piece of property to her husband making it hard for her to do what she wants without being critiqued by the men on the farm. Another way Steinbeck objectifys Curley 's wife is by using specific vocabulary “Don’t you even take a look at that bitch. I don 't care what she says and what she does. I seen em poison before, but I never seen no piece of jailbait worse than her. You leave her be.” (Pg 32) Through this quote Steinbeck is able to reveal the
Emotions are a very powerful human instinct that drives our thought processes and our actions. This can lead a person to carry out positive or negative acts with different consequences. No one is perfect, and neither is the character George in Of Mice and Men. George treats Lennie with the love and respect he would give a son. He cannot be blamed for treating Lennie badly just from a few words throughout the book.
The readers feel angry. When Joe asks Lena if he is her husband Hurston says, “Lena looked at him real disgusted but she don’t answer and she don’t move outa her tracks”. The reader feels angry as Lena does not show any sympathy towards Joe, her loving husband. Lena does not care about Joe’s emotions as she does it in front of his face! The reader feels angry again when Spunk says, “‘doan give up whut’s yours, but when youse inside don’t forgit youse mine, an’ let no other man git outa his place wid you!”.
