She was going through what many women went through in that time of history. Women were filled with resentment in those days. Edna became the woman who life was only about taking care of her husband and children, which lead her to become more resentful and full of regrets when it came down to her life. “Her marriage to Leonce Pontellier was purely an accident, (Chopin, 1899).” Chopin developed the character Mrs. Pontellier that many women were in that day.
Steinbeck presents Curley’s Wife in different perspectives. The sympathy which she attracts is immense. She explains that she ‘gets lonely’ and ‘I get awful lonely’.

You can’t blame the girl, for feeling depressed, she lives on a ranch where she is the only girl, her husband sees her as an object that he owns and she has no one to turn or talk to.
