Characterization and simile are two literary techniques that help aid comparing and contrasting the two people. In the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, all the patients in the ward fear Nurse Ratchet. Nurse Ratchet is a very prim woman, she is never seen out of character. “ The nurse tends to get real put out if something keeps her outfit from running smooth, accurate, and a precision-made machine…. What she dreams of there in the center of those wires is a world of precision efficiency and tidiness like a pocket watch with a glass back, a place where the schedule is unbreakable.” (Kesey 28,29) Through this quote you can tell the preciseness that Nurse has, she is not a lax person she is very stringent when it comes to the rules she has in the ward.
In the book "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen we are confronted with a character named August who acts as the antagonist to the lovers and the circus workers. While August seems to have a charming, gentle and inviting side to him, it is far more likely you will catch him in a fit of rage beating his wife, abusing an animal, or treating the people around him like trash. Throughout the story his actions are dismissed by excuses that he has a medical condition that causes his rage-filled, paranoid schizophrenic actions, but soon even these excuses will not hide what is ultimately true character. His anger driven actions are responsible for his unpleasant demise and no amount of outward charm can cover up the beast in his soul. We can evaluate his true character based on three points, the way he treated the circus animals, the way he treated the people around him, and most notably the way he treated his wife Marlena.
The physical description which follows underlines how out of touch she is with the male world of the ranch. She is “heavily made up” whilst the “little bouquets of red ostrich feathers” seem almost laughably inappropriate. The repetition of red – which is a colour associated with passion and danger – is an early indication of Curley’s wife flirtatious character. This is an impression underlined by her body language as she leans against the door “so that her body was thrown forward” and by the fact that she speaks “playfully” in response to George who has just “brusquely” retorted: “Well he ain’t

Her physical appearance of a good-looking lady who wears quite a bit of makeup, form-fitting dresses, and ostrich feathered-high heels. "full, rouged lips and wide-spaced eyes, heavily made- up" aswell as painted fingernails and sausage curl hair, further build on our prejudice. She talks and acts playfully and flirtatiously in front of the other ranch workers. Through her physical appearance and her own actions, Candy's description of Curley's Wife seems accurate after her first appearance in the book. As the only woman on the ranch, Curley’s wife is lonely and sad ”why can’t i talk to you?
