This shows the reader just how useful hands can be, and how intelligent George is by making use of them. George does not take certain things for granted and is very wise when moments like these occur. Another way that John Steinbeck portrays the use of hands throughout the novel is through Lennie’s
They were restricted in what activities they could do. Mrs. Wright and Mrs. Mallard both have the same psychological process and share the same emotions. In their respective stories, they both feel stuck in their lives but the limitations brought on by their husbands. In their respective stories they both feel down, then happy, and sad again. They are both unhappy because their husbands trap them, then they are happy because they are free from their marriage.
However, he can’t bear to tell her the truth of her son’s awful, painful death. So, he uses Utopianism, explaining to the mother her son died a peaceful death in his sleep. Not the truth of his suffering, but just the way they would both like it to be.

She was portrayed to be cooperative and compliant to her husband who had took away the happiness in Minnie Foster’s life. In the story, two neighbor women slowly began unmasking the evidence and truth of Minnie Fosters’ conviction, the murder of her husband.

Despite what she’s done, Grace is an incredibly likeable character. The reader, even though he or she may know what she’s done and question her sanity and status as a reliable narrator, it is easy to feel sorry for her.
