Curley's Wife. Essay - 363 Words.
Additionally Curley might be the reason of Curley's wife behavior; Curley's wife is clearly lonely in the novel because Curley doesn't pay much attention to her.

In this essay I am going to examine whether Curley's wife is a tart or not. I.
Curley's wife's loneliness has changed her attitude towards others greatly, making her overtly insecure and excessively flirtatious. John Steinbeck shows in the book, Of Mice and Men, how poor lifestyles were. They have few possessions, fewer comforts, no chance of happy marriage or family life and no place of their own. This all leads to the path of loneliness. The men on the ranch avoid her.
She is not even important enough to be called by her own name: throughout the whole novel she is always referred to as “Curley’s wife”, as if she were Curley’s property and could not make decisions for herself. Curley doesn’t like her talking to other men on the ranch, and this means that she is supposed to be confined in her room.
She feels that she is unwanted and no one cares for her so no one would need to know her name. Curely’s Wife is also only introduced to other people as “Curley’s Wife”, I think that Steinbeck does this to show that Curley, her husband, is in possession of her, like so many other women in 1930 in other situations. No characters in the novella care for Curley’s Wife and very little.

We are never told Curley’s wife’s name because she is a possession of Curley’s, this reflects on her complete lack of individuality because she is owned by Curley and therefore doesn’t have her own identity. Many Americans had a big dream, the dreams were never succeeded. Throughout the novella we see that Curley’s wife doesn’t listen to Curley and is both a victim and a villain as.
When Curley discovers his wife’s body he runs after Lennie with a mob including George. This leads to George pulling a trigger on Lennie. I feel Curley’s wife is the most despairing and lonely character in the book. She has no friends, no future, no respect; she doesn’t even deserve a name. I really feel sorry for her, all she wants is.
