“There is no greater disability in society , than the inability to see a person as more” by Robert M. Hensel . Discrimination is a unjust treatment, both women and men have been discriminated by their differences between themselves. In Of MIce and Men many characters are discriminated for their disabilities, gender, age, and the most known the discrimination of color. Curley’s wife is discriminated for her gender. 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.
In life, there are many people who influence others. Some are good influences and some are bad influences. The one person who influenced Christopher's life the most would have to be his father, Ed Boone a character from the novel the curious incident of the dog in the night-time written by Mark Haddon. In the book Ed Boone makes lots of mistakes that are completely understandable given his situation. He is still a fine father whose has unconditional love and commitment for Christopher which allows him to grow in spite of the numerous challenges he faces.
Notwithstanding, he has had controversy with almost everyone on the ranch. He abused Lennie, a mentally disabled man, he publicly exposes his and his wife’s sexual lives, and he treats his wife as if she is his slave. Moreover, the actions Curley has done are corrupt, but they are not solely because he is an abominable person. An infrequent amount of readers will look at Curley’s actions and have sympathy for him, but Curley has reasons for his mistakes. Nevertheless, Curley is a disastrous man due to the way he grew up being an only child, he is astoundingly short, his father is a wealthy ranch owner, and he grew up in a racist and sexist community.
OMAM Theme Women in the novella, Of Mice and Men, were treated terrible and poorly. They had a lower status than men and were only considered as objects and caretakers. For example, Curley’s wife was mistreated, given bad names by the men, and her name was not revealed because she did not own an identity and was nonexistent. John Steinbeck portrays that women were objects and caretakers by using indirect characterization and diction. Curley’s wife was not given a name, therefore she was not considered as a person.
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. This is a couple where this no caring for one another which leads to a relationship that existed in misery and could not be considered “a lasting
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.
Steinbeck doesn’t give Curley’s wife a name and this is important as it emphasises how she is seen as lesser in society as she is a woman. It reflects the inferiority of women in the 1930’s and makes her out to be an object of Curley’s. Her and Curley spend little time together and she ‘don’ like Curley’ so try’s to escape her loneliness by talking to the other men. The other men refer to her in a derogatory way calling her ‘tart’ and ‘jailbait’ because they are perhaps afraid of Curley as he has more authority and she is ‘his object’ and his ‘possession’ should be respected. This also shows the men don’t see her as an equal and she has no authority over them leaving her a very lonely
In the story of “The Lady with the Dog”, the character Gurov’ character changes because of the events that occur in the story. At the beginning of the story, Gurov seems heartless, he does not respect the people around him including his wife, “he has begun being unfaithful to her long ago -- had been unfaithful to her often, and, probably on that account, almost always spoke ill of women, and when they were talked about in his presence, used to call them "the lower race” (172). He also does not feel anything toward women and thinks “their beauty aroused hatred in him and the lace on their linen reminded him of scales” (175). Love could be a reflex action. People find themselves victim of it; frequently in the worst place, time and circumstances
“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
Sympathy is key Death is one thing that many people associate with sympathy, such as a person's family member dying, you would feel bad for them once you find out about it. Sympathy can help people see what others are going through and to understand their struggles. Many characters in Of Mice and Men deserve sympathy but three characters deserve the most because they are treated the worst in their life. These characters are Lennie, Crooks, and Curley's wife. Although Lennie is treated really crappy he is not treated the worst in the novel.
