On top of this he is almost imprisoned by his ‘crooked’ back even though his isolation gives him the freedom to ‘leave his things about’ and to have personal space. This gives him power which he craves so much and is jealous of. This is the place where he feels he has power as opposed to when he exits it. In the other chapter Crooks opened the door ‘quietly’ and only put in his ‘lean negro head’. He is extremely polite, unlike the way he lashes out at Lennie shouting he’s ‘got a right to a light’.

Around 30 per cent of London’s population live in poverty. This means that many people cannot afford to have the stuff we take for granted. For example, people who live in these conditions cannot afford decent housing, clothes or food.

He has thin lips, which can sometimes be cracked, as a sign of the level of stress he experiences everyday at work. However, behind his physical appearance he is a very admirable and alluring person. At first, he may seem as a cold and blunt person, as he doesn’t open up or show his true feelings to everyone.
