You have thrown it all away. You are shallow and stupid” (Dorian Gray, 63). This disconnect between the two underscores how Sibyl killed Dorians love. This is more of a metaphorical killing of love, but Oscar Wilde shows a more literal meaning behind killing their love. When Henry says “My letter----don’t be frightened----was to tell you that Sibyl Vane is dead” (Dorian Gray, 71) Dorian is shaken about how his drastic actions caused Sybil to kill herself.
In Curley’s wife’s case, she was being blamed for something solely for the reason of her being a woman. Technically speaking, the real reason Candy, George, and Lennie's plan got called off was because Lennie killed Curley’s wife, and George did not think it was possible to go without him. However, Candy takes his anger out of Curley’s wife just because she is the person that Lennie killed. Even though she is dead, he shows her no mercy. She is stilled called names.
