In this extremely thorough and exhaustive passage, we see the methods that Steinbeck uses to present the character of Candy. One of Steinbeck’s most renowned, all-powerful methods is repetition. For example when Candy says: “I seen her give Slim the eye” twice to George. Steinbeck is loosely showing how Candy is a scandalmonger, and finds entertainment in unfounded rumours. Furthermore, it could also indicate Candy’s malefic side if at all he had one.
Curleys wife, In John Steinbeck’s novel ‘Of Mice and Men, is an example of how the readers perception of a character can change without the character actually changing. Curleys wife is first introduced when Candy describes her to George. Candy says things such as “she got the eye” and goes on to describe her as a woman who likes to look at other men and then finally calls her a “tart”. Through Candy’s words we develop an initial perception of Curley’s wife as flirtatious and promiscuous. This perception is further emphasized by Curley’s Wife’s first appearance in the novel.
What methods does Steinbeck use in this passage to present Candy? e in so many of Steinbeck’s other works, is meant to comment on the plight of the downtrodden, to make the reader sympathize with people who society and storytellers often deem unworthy because of their class, physical or mental capabilities, or the color of their skin. Whether or not these issues constitute a flaw in the novel, it is true that Steinbeck places George, Lennie, and their relationship on a rather high pedestal. Nowhere is this more clear than in the story George constantly tells about the farm they one day plan to own. This piece of land represents a world in which the two men can live together just as they are, without dangers and without apologies.
(1.3.71)” Banquo also doubts the intension of the witches, he believes that evil always tells one part of the truth in order to earn one’s trust and lead him to destruction. Banquo warns Macbeth, ”But ‘tis strange./And oftentimes, to win us to our harm,/ the instruments of darkness tell us truths,/win us with honest trifles, to betray’s/In deepest consequence. (1.3.124-128)” On the other hand, Macbeth ignored his friends warning and believes in what the witches say. He is over whelmed by his ambition to be king, he said to himself,”Glamis, and the thane of Cawfor!/The greatest is behind. (1.3.118-119).””Two truths are told/,as happy prologues to the swelling act/of the imperial theme.

When the Queenie takes out the money “out of the hollow at the center of her nibbled pink top” (Updike, P136) Sammy thinks it is cute but actually, it is a kind of rude to not wear like that in the store. Sammy was on the right track even he does not like it. He did not suppose to do anything when his boss blames the girls. But he falls into a desire---being a hero in front of them. This desire leads him to make a hasty decision without careful considerations---to quit his job.
And that our views on life are very different to what life is. Steinbeck also uses candy to reflect another characteristic in ourselves which is commonly known as pack mentality. We get the sense that Curly’s wife has not been particularly pleasant to candy nor crooks before the beginning of the play. But in Crooks’s hut they have the upper hand and we see them all verbally attack curly’s wife. This is a reflection of our human tendency to band together whenever we can to gain the upper hand and weather this is a good thing or not is down to
Candy, like Crooks, also tried to reach out, yet he does it by trying to defend Crooks. Crooks and Curley's wife get into a climactic altercation, and Candy, acting on his loneliness, angrily discloses that they aren't "afraid of getting canned...because they got their own land". (Steinbeck 79) This reflects his reaching out because he put himself on the line for a man he had just met. Before the altercation with Crooks, Curley's wife uses her appeal to reach out. In a desperate attempt to make small talk with the men, she states
Isben wants to highlight how crude not having equality for women is, especially when a portion of them are smarter than a portion of the opposite gender and vice versa. He shows Nora’s husband in an attempt to emphasize the negative part of the non-feminism side. He shows him as a belittling man to his “squanderbird” and how he treats her with little respect. (A Doll’s House) He does so by using little nicknames that remind her of problems she has while she retains herself from pointing out his flaws. Although, it is understandable that she doesn’t point out his flaws with all the lies and guilt she has stacked up on her marriage.
