    You Cannot Judge a Book By its Cover- Lord Chesterfield once said, 'You must look into people, as well as at them.' If you apply this logic to Curley's wife and Crooks in the book, Of Mice and Men, you will find that they are the same in many ways despite their differences in race and sex. These two unfortunate souls live in a world full of shattered dreams, discrimination, and loneliness. Langston Hughes once said, 'Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot...

    In Class we watched two movies based on a book we read called Of Mice and Men. Both of the movies were very similar to the book. In I was able to hear exact lines from the book in the two movies. In the book and in the second movie Curley's wife was not given a name. She was not given a name to symbolize that she was nothing more than a possession of Curley. Curley's wife was given a name in the first movie. Her name was May. I think that the first movie we watched best depicted her because of ...

    Dear Diary, I really have no idea how much longer I can stand living here. I'm lonely here. The other women from town who I used to talk with live too far away from Tyler Ranch. Curley doesn't talk much to me, as always, but then again... I really don't enjoy talking to him either. He's a truly malevolent person; I've never heard him say anything good about anyone... not even his own father! I don't think he truly cares for me, either. He sees me as his property, and sometimes he even vents out...

    Intolerance is human nature; people who are different from or weaker than the norm are victims of intolerance and become isolated and lonely. Those who are in the norm are expected to be strong and not show their feelings. In Of Mice And Men, by John Steinbeck, the social power group is the white, male workers on the farm. They are younger men, still useful, reasonably intelligent, and average-sized. They exclude people who do not fit their norm, such as Curley for being short, Lennie for being ...
  • Naturalism In Of Mice And Men
    427 words
    Naturalism is a literary style that displays action or thought that is derived exclusively from natural desires and instincts (The Reader's Digest Great Encyclopedic Dictionary, p. 901). John Steinbeck's novel Of Mice and Men contains several instances of this element. Some of these are found when Lennie breaks Curley's hand, when Lennie kills Curley's wife, and when George kills Lennie. When Lennie breaks Curley's hand, Lennie's honesty is contrasted with Curley's hotheadedness and arrogance. ...
  • Curley Wife Of Mice And Men
    345 words
    Curley's wife in Of Mice and Men is given a fairly one-dimensional portrayal throughout the novella, as her character stays, for the most part, enigmatic. The most obvious example would be her lack of a name. She is continually referred to as a possession of her husband and without a name she becomes almost insignificant. The author, however, drops hints throughout the book telling his audience that there may be more to Curley's wife than what is easily deduced. One scene involving a sympathetic...

    If two characters stand out to me who contrast in the more ways in the book Of Mice and Men, it would be Curley and Lennie. One is smart and witty while the other is big, dumb, and strong. From the moment these two characters meet, Curley has a hate towards Lennie. Lennie is to dumb to dislike Curley back because Lennie does whatever George tells him to, and George tells Lennie to stay away form Curley. Steinbeck makes Curley out to be a character in which you dislike from meeting him. He is ru...

    'Of Mice and Men' is a skillful novel, which deals with the theme of 'outsiders', that is, individuals who do not fit into the mainstream of society.

He writes, 'The meanness and the planning's of the discontent and the ache for attention were all gone from her face.' (p. 128) This shows that now Curley's w...
