In the times John Steinbeck lived in women were not held in high regard but they were just present to serve men. However, they still tried to yearn for a better future by exploiting men. The character Curley's wife in the novel is a victim of society and her dream. She is married to Curley who neglects her and so because of her loneliness she is always seeking attention. She wears too much makeup and dresses like a "whore"
We can see that Curley’s wife is portrayed by Steinbeck as a ‘tart’ in the beginning of the book, she is not cared for or liked by many of the men on the ranch at all as she irritates them and they think that she is not loyal towards Curley. However, by the end of the book the reader feels sorry for her as we see deeper inside her and see how lonely she is, she only has the image of a tart because she is so alone and the only way she knows to make friends is by being a flirtatious person. The first mention of Curley’s wife is in chapter 2 when George and ‘the swamper’ are talking about her. They say that she is ‘Purty ... but- well-she got the eye’. They mean that she is always looking and flirting with other men.
Miss Saunders also gets made fun of because of the big blotch she has on her face which is her birth mark. Miss Saunders realizes Maleeka is a smart and talented student and encourages Maleeka to work hard. Then, a boy starts liking Maleeka, Caleb. But then he stops talking to her because everyone is making fun of them. Not only does she try to impress everyone with her appearance but she also goes along with Char, and gets in trouble because she has no ability to say no and walk away.
Frank, in a negative way. It must be remembered, however, that Anne, the rebellious adolescent, sees her mother as an irritating figure of authority, and Mrs. Frank must surely resent Anne’s rejection of her. Additionally, Mrs. Frank is particularly miserable in the annex, where they hide, for she is from rich family, where she knew the finest things in life and never had to work. As a result, the confining, cramped quarters of annex, the scarcity of basic necessities, and the work are real irritations to her. She often takes out her frustration on her chattering, sometimes irritating, younger daughter, Anne.
First, she is a naive girl, who is basically taken advantage of by an older man. Then her family is turned against her, because of her alleged actions. Since her family doesn't understand the relationship that she and Pete share they accuse her of things that she did not do. The friction between her and her family forces her out, but with nowhere to go she must fend for herself anyway necessary on the streets. The situation that Maggie ends up in is not her fault, but the faults of the actions, or inactions of the people around her.
Curley’s wife explained to Lennie about being lonely and how difficult it is on her. “’I get lonely… You can talk to people, but I talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad’” [Steinbeck 78]. Curley’s wife never has anyone to talk to; when she gets the chance she often ruins the mood. She did not want Lennie to hurt her, but Lennie is very unpredictable.
As a result he often can’t face reality and can’t react properly to situations because he isn’t used to proper human contact- except from George who treats him like a pet, and who lennie obeys. The men are afraid of Lennie because they know that if his great strength were ever to go uncontrolled, it could easily overwhelm any one of them. This constant rejection by others increases the depth of Lennie's loneliness and adds to the theme of loneliness running through the novel. Lennie and curley’s wife react to their lonliness and getting into trouble, this explains why many people do bad things and how it isn’t really their fault. This also suggests why society have to care for minorities or generally lonely people because otherwise bad things may happen.
Curley’s wife in particular is a bully towards him as she thinks she has more power over him than anyone else, as she is married to the bosses’ son and she’s white. Crooks longs for friendship with someone but nobody wants to communicate with him as he is coloured. Excitement in his actions when Lennie turns up to talk to him shows just how lonely he is. But Lennie only talks to Crooks when all the other men are out in town. He’s quite cruel towards Lennie and torments him.
