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
On page 72 Crooks says, “Well s’pose, jus’ s'pose he don’t come back. What’ll you do then?” Curley's wife tries to persuade Lennie to not do exactly what George always tells him to do. The characters in Of Mice and Men show many different sides of the human condition.
One of the most obvious characters used in the novel to depict isolated at its greatest extent is Crooks, who is described as an outcast separated from the rest of the men because of his race. In the early 1900’s, racism was very common as white people thought they were superior to black people. Crooks’ loneliness is implied through his belongings, but also admits to being so lonely as he says, “S'pose you didn't have nobody. S'pose you couldn't go into the bunk house and play rummy
Loneliness is a key aspect that flows throughout the Of Mice and Men plot line. Every character express some sort of loneliness at one time or another in this story. Some character express the fact that they are currently alone and others express that they have been lonely in their past. Others do not clearly state that they have even thought about loneliness, but they do give subtle hints at to it. The two main characters in this story are George and Lennie, they travel together and yet both express their struggles and fears of being alone.
Ultimately resulting in her death. In Margaret Atwood’s short story, she asserts that being discriminated and isolated causes the narrator to have deep mental issues that lead to signs of depression through the protagonist’s unorthodox way of accepting her fate without any hesitation to prevent her life being taken away. In this story, the narrator has been lead to believe that she has no part in her community. Throughout her life, she has been isolated by her entire town even by those who she called family.
Of Mice And Men Struggles were afoot among the American population during the depression, once again, leaving the woman without choices. John Steinbeck demonstrated the restrictions and life of women within the great depression through Curley’s wife, her mother, society, and her own American dream. Curley’s wife has no choices in what she can do or her future. Her power is limited to the men working at the farm, and even then she can barely control their jobs.
Of Mice and Men was published in 1937 during a time of bi-racism between the caucasians and the african americans, and the apathetic Great Depression, which may have served as inspiration. In the novel two opposites attract, a gargantuan but mentally challenged man by the name of Lennie, and a small, nimble, and intelligent man named George. Suffering from a mental illness Lennie gets into trouble when he 's alone, but George always saves him, George knows Lennie doesn 't do anything, “out of meanness” as he says. Undoubtedly the reader assimilates that Lennie kills a young lady, said to have done so accidentally. Furthermore without any control George was forced to kill Lennie.
Proctor, though, gave very little throughout the play. John Proctor is a dishonorable man, due mainly to his wrathful behavior, massive ego, and selfishness. Throughout The Crucible, John Proctor proves himself to be dishonorable by being wrathful towards others. In Act II, when Herrick is about to take Proctor’s wife Elizabeth away, Proctor rips the court’s arrest warrant for Elizabeth and yells “Out with you!” (Miller 173).
Women appeared to be extremely irrelevant in the novel. Many had no voice, but especially not a name. Curley’s wife was not respected as she is not given a name, ignored and was talked about her, such things as being a “tart”. Many ranch workers did not know her but still had created a single story of her. Curley's wife may be an awful woman, but she has to presence neglect and isolation.
This displays how Melinda felt like she did not belong, and like she was not loved. No one made her feel special, not even her parents, because they didn’t understand what she going through, and never bothered to ask.
