A Rebellious tone appears through the character of Sister Hope, “everyone tries to transcend, but she’s the only one to make progress. She the only one to survive” (Lecture). The irony that the men attempt (and fail) at “graceful tasks” such as farming to get closer to God and Sister Hope keeps her wits and moves past them is highly ironic from the initial setup. By the same token, a feminist tone is found in the character of Sister Hope. Using the quote from before the men attempt “graceful” work, yet it is Sister Hope who “saves the commune by harvesting wheat before a frost comes, she does all the useful house work, and though she is the only woman she is the most practical,” (Lecture) highly ironic for a community that exploited women and gave them no decision making power.
Of Mice and Men, one of Steinbeck 's classic novellas, is constructed on the strange friendship between George Milton and Lennie Smalls and their journey to achieving the American Dream. On their quest, they arrive at a farm where they meet a nameless farm wife who is simply referred to as Curley 's wife. Throughout the novella she is objectified and isolated which helps develop the theme of loneliness. Because she is a woman, she is deprived of many opportunities to have dreams and goals in her life. Steinbeck crafts Curley’s wife’s character to demonstrate the role of women in the 1930’s, and to prove that women will never be able to achieve the American Dream because of the sexist society present during that time period.
Furthermore, Mrs.Moreno’s devotion is further demonstrated when once for Yollie’s birthday, Mrs. Moreno wanted to make caramel apples for Yollie,but it was too expensive. Instead she used molasses and although it was too hard for anyone to eat, they made a game of who could break theirs. Even though Mrs. Moreno’s plan didn’t exactly work out, “At least everyone went home happy.” Sometimes in life, when you run into an obstacle, it’s the universe’s way of leading you to a new road, the right road. Mrs. Moreno experiences a plethora of those life-changing obstacles in her lifetime leading her to adventures, experiences, and carving the path of her life. Her path from the minute she had Yollie became all about Yollie.
At the beginning of the novel, Curley’s wife is often seen as a floozy rather than a nice girl. Firstly, Curley’s wife is presented as a floozy and threat to anyone on the ranch. This is shown when Candy describes her to George and Lennie as “a bitch” who “got the eye.” This is interesting because George and Lennie haven’t even met her yet but instantly draw conclusions on how they feel towards her. Curley’s wife being the boss’ daughter in law should be treated with respect and dignity because of the power she holds, however, because of the ranch hands description of her, we as readers can tell she holds no authority. At this moment the reader is unaware of why but later discovers the social prejudices that plague the ranch.
The issue of motherhood considered essential among local people of Bottom, so the person who refuse it, face social critics. Eva represents a great example of motherhood in the story when she decided to look after her children after her husband abandoned her.
