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
In conclusion the loneliest character in the book was Curley's wife for what she has done in the past and because Curley has her isolated from everyone. Throughout the story she is never really talked about because Curley doesn't bring her up a lot so when she comes in the barn with Lennie it was here first time in a while talking to another guy other than Curley and that shows her isolation.
She told Lennie that if she had been allowed to be in the movies, she “wouldn’t be livin’ like this” (88). Curley’s wife was stereotyped as a helpless woman from the time her character was introduced to the time she was murdered. In the 1930’s, women were supposed to stay at home and do chores while their husbands were away, and then wait on them when they returned. Curley’s wife felt that her family was holding her back from her dreams, and the only possible way that she could find out of her situation was marriage. Because she was a woman, she could not just go to Hollywood herself and demand an audition, or confront her parents, which seems almost silly now but was a real issue back in the thirties.

I was so enraged by their actions I yelled to her “Why won 't you just love us, we are your grandchildren too? Why won 't you be our grandmother?” our Aunt Melissa smirked and scoffed. Then Esther said calmly yet sharply “You three think you 're so special. Your mom doesn 't love you.
Their father is however, unlike any other novels written by men or men perspective, very sympathetic, but very submissive under his wife 's authority.

In his memoir, Where the Wind Leads, Vinh Chung demonstrates the theme that times of despair and hardship will eventually pass, but it is the motivation to succeed which will make that time fruitful. While relaying the story of his family’s past, Chung gives an overall theme of success and prosperity which accompanies the distress and conflict brought about by the encompassing Vietnam War. As Chung stated, “[W]hat I do know is that the same pressure that can crush coal into dust can also turn carbon into diamond . . . Tough times produce tough people” (14). Though this theme of success can be grounded in one’s desire to prosper, Chung shows a deeper desire from which this success stems.
Chris never had a girlfriend, and was very distant from his parents, truly only finding solace in his sister. Cheryl, on the other hand, Was very close to her mother and became devastated when she died, Cheryl was also married before divorcing her husband once her mother died, and her life began to crumble. Another difference was their connections to their previous worlds. Cheryl had continuous connection to those around her and kept in touch to update them on her location, as well as receive food and money from them. Chris, in contrast, never spoke to his friends or family, not even to let them know where he was or if he was alive.
Discrimination of the mice and men In the book Of mice and men written by John Steinback some of the characters are mistreated by the other people because they are not the same they are the outcast of the group. Curley 's wife is a lonely woman on a ranch with a whole bunch of ranch hands and nobody wants to have anything to do with her she got married to man that she doesn 't even love she is just on the ranch with a lot of people and really nobody likes her and even after death nobody even felt bad for her. Candy said “ You God D*** Tramp”. You did it din you.
While Crooks, a victim of racial prejudice, expresses his isolation openly, he also socializes with other workers on the job and while playing horseshoes with them. Curley’s wife, on the other hand, cannot talk to anyone without suffering the consequences of a jealous husband: “ I get so lonely,’ she said. “you can talk to people , but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad. How’d you like not to talk to anybody?”
You ain’t no good now, you lousy tart” (95). In other words, Curley 's wife does not even have to be alive to cause trouble, and her death alone exhibits enough power to create distress. In addition, Candy is implying that Curley’s wife has had the ability to cause trouble all along. For example, George saw that the first time Lennie was introduced to Curley’s wife he immediately fell under her spell, which caused George to continue to warn Lennie about her since her knew what she was capable of. The constant warning was nagging on the back of Lennie’s brain each time he came in contact with Curley’s wife, wondering when she was actually going to strike.
Section five – GoodCurley’s wife (Can she be redeemed) Curley’s wife is the only one to blame for her actions; she is always taking her anger out on people, meanly Crooks. She never say’s sorry or asks for forgiveness, although she is the only female on the ranch Steinbeck wants us to feel sympathy for her as she cannot get along with known body and she’s a house wife that’s extremely isolated with no one to convert. This is in evidence when she say’s “I get awful lonely.”
