Whilst Curley’s wife expresses this through dialogue once again, “Think I don’t like to talk to somebody ever’ once in a while. Think I like to stick in that house alla time” (Steinbeck, page 77). The only way the women broke away from their roles was in death. Both women were trapped by the domestic ideal of femininity that made them unable to follow their creative loves of writing and acting, as women were only viewed useful as wives and
“Curley’s wife stands as a glaringly bitter and ironic illus-tration of the immorality of narrow minds and the social conditions that produce them” (Hart 39). 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 spite of the fact that George and Lennie’s friendship is not always easy for George to handle because of Lennie’s shortcomings, George is always ready to vouch for Lennie” (Rollins 21). For example, he assures both the boss and the other workers that Lennie is a good worker and therefore deserves the job “...he’s sure a hell of a good worker. Strong as a bull” (Steinbeck 24). Lastly, George considers himself and Lennie lucky to have each other and thinks that they are not as lonely as the other workers because they have each other. They also have their dream of having their own place together, a dream
Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20). Nanny is successfully able to convince her granddaughter through her own traumatic experiences and make her feel “sympathy” as she tells Janie she doesn’t want her life to be spoiled like her own life was. At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced. By calling herself a “cracked plate” Nanny further elucidates that she went through many hardships in her own life and wants to do the right thing for her granddaughter by
It is Lennie’s fault because George specifically told him to stay away from that rat trap. In the text it said, “ ‘Let go,’ she cried. ‘You let go!’ Lennie was in a panic… And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck” (Steinbeck 91). In this quote, Lennie is chaotic and went into a panic when she started yelling at him. This shows that Lennie cannot simply live without doing something
Therefore he covered her mouth and thus led to her neck being snapped. At the beginning of the book Lennie did something similar to another girl, he wouldn’t let go of her dress, luckily George was there to stop him and help him let go of the dress unlike in this situation George wasn’t there to make him let go of Curley’s wife. Resulting in him accidentally killing her. The previous incident similar to this one foreshadowed the incident and death of Curley’s wife. By Steinbeck using foreshadowing throughout the book he’s slowly showing the crushing of this fragile dream that George and Lennie
In Macbeth, lady Macbeth talks her husband Macbeth into things he doesn 't want to do. Lady Macbeth wants Duncan, the king of scotland killed so Macbeth will be king but her husband Macbeth doesn 't want to do it, so she manipulates him into doing it “and live a coward in thine own esteem” (Macbeth 1.7.43). When she doesn 't get her way she insults him and says he 's not a man “when you durst do it” she says “ then you were a man” (Macbeth 1.7.49). Macbeth kills Duncan and instantly regrets it. When Macbeth is confronted by his wife about killing Duncan he doesn 't want to
You’re going to die”. (Act 5, scene 2, page 3). Here he states that if his wife have any kind of sins or something to confess is the time, but there will be nothing that will change his mind or thought about her. He is going to kill her anyway. Othello furious and blind by jealousy is no longer able to think: in the last meeting with Desdemona, Othello accuses his wife of treason with Cassio and deceives her by saying that her alleged lover died.
A Rose for Emily has two types of conflict. Person Vs. Self, Emily tends deal with a lot of problems by herself. Her father never let her date or marry anyone because he thought they weren’t good enough for her. After her father died she tried to keep the body, she didn’t really have anyone in her life except her father. When her father died she lost everyone that mattered to her.
Scott Fitzgerald portrays love as essentially impracticable fancy. When Daisy’s her daughter was born, her husband Tom was nowhere to be found. The nurses handed her baby to her and she said, “ I hope she’ll be a fool—that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” Daisy just like every women back then would just ignore the signs of cheating because they couldn’t do anything about it because they were defined by their husbands. Being a fool means her daughter realize that her husband is cheating. That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.

Curley’s wife begins to regret living on the ranch with Curley. She starts to regret living there because of the way they treat her. And also because she could be doing better in her life instead of sitting around being bored and only being able to associate with Curley. Curley’s wife states “ I tell you I aint used to livin’ like this, I coulda made somethin’ of myself.” (Steinbeck 88). They treat her wrong because in this novella they only calls her Curley’s wife they never called her by her name so no one will ever know what it was.
I don’ like Curley”’. (89) She simply marries Curley in a way to get back at her mother. Another reason Curley’s wife marries Curley, is she believes that her mother ruined her dreams. Curley’s wife could have been a movie star. She has one opportunity but she did not receive a letter.
Not even for her ill husband would she turn off let alone turn down a program she was not even actively watching. Place higher value over an inattimate than one 's own spouse is clearly inhumane and lacks compassion. Mildred even called the actors on her program her family demonstrating just how much the characters on a show meant to her. The distraction of her so called family eventually lead to her death because “the family pratted and chatted and said her name and smiled at her and said nothing of the bomb” (Bradbury, 152). Essentially Mildred used her “family” as a distractions from her problems.
