Curley's wife impression

Extracts from this document...


Of mice and men Analysing the character of Curley's wife in the "of mice and men book" will be done by assuming two prospective that can agree or not. Curley's wife First opinion Curley's wife gave me the impression of a person that likes to play around with men too much for her conditions. In fact she is already married but it seems that it does not make a big difference to her as pulling the strings with the other workers seems her favourite hobby. We first met her or at least had a description of her character on page 49 when George was talking with the cleaner. From the cleaner's observation it seems that Mrs Curley after two weeks of marriage stared playing around with the workers in the place without a lot of discretion, which is why she managed to create a certain reputation between them. ...read more.


Lennie however unlike George will not be able of ignore it and will keep staring at her dreamingly until she will leave. This is a further prove to the fact that Curley's wife likes man so much that she does not care who they tare, as long as they are males they are okay for her. Curley's wife second opinion Curley's wife seems to like men too much, so much that even though she is married she keeps seeking for new ones. Most of the workers have experienced her playful attitude and probably thought of why a man like Curley would marry such a prostitute although they appreciate her as the cleaner said in page 50 defining her as a tart. On page 49 George asked if she was promiscuous the cleaner firmly agreed and he even added more to it. ...read more.


The only reason for which it seems that her husband hasn't noticed of her weird behaviour is the fact that he has too much work to do and therefore it is already hard enough for him just to stay with her for a few hours. In conclusion Curley's wife although is married to Curley has no name for the ranchers. Her name has never been told and therefore is presented merely as Curley's property. This makes her sad and as young and pretty she wears attractive clothes to attract other men. This proves that she is flirtiest and keeps hanging around with the bunkhouse. She the only women in the ranch, which makes her, depress since there is no one to talk with. Is na�ve and its proved with her dream of going to Hollywood. She is not attracted to Curley since if Hollywood had accepted her she would have left him long time ago. ...read more.
