My Post

In,"Of Mice and Men" John Steinbeck uses Curley's wife to illustrate if a person can be misunderstood, truly evil, or both? She truly disliked being on the farm with all the men that she finds under them. "-Sat'day night. Ever'body out doin' som'pin'. Ever'body! An' what am I doin'? Standin' here talkin' to a bunch of bindle stiffs-a n****** an' a dum-dum and a lousy ol' sheep-an' likin' it because there ain't nobody else." She talks about, again, that she is stuck on the farm, and stuck with the farmers. She state throughout the story that she hates the farm because she does not like the farmers very much and she completely hates Curley. "Sure I gotta husban'. You all seen him. Swell guy, ain't he? Spends all his time sayin' what he's gonna do to guys he don't like, and he don't like nobody." She does not like how Curley always seems to be mad and angry. The first two quotes that are shown show how see is more misunderstood than evil. All she really want for her self is to be with a man she wants to be with, and be surrounded by people she likes. THis next quote shows how she is a flirts and how she brings death upon herself."But you're a kinda nice fella. Jus' like a big baby. But a person can see kinda what you mean." At this point she seems to being flirting with Lennie like she does with Slim and the other people on the farm.She knew how Lennie was not that bight so in that way she brought it on her self be besides that she is just misunderstood. John Steinbeck illustrates in,"Of Mice and Men" that Curley's wife is both misunderstood but also in a way brought her own death upon her self.


  1. I like how you incorporate the aspect of being evil and misunderstood. I also like how you said the she is not lonely just because of being stuck in the house all the time, but also for being with someone she hates, Curley.

  2. I like this. I think you really made a good point about how she was lonely not because she didn't have any rights on the ranch but because she hated everyone she was surrounded by. If you don't like the people around you, you most likely won't be a very happy, successful person. you used good quotes that supported your point. Good job!

  3. I agree with you because Curley's wife doesn't like being on the farm with all the farmers. I thought your thesis was well written because it really grabs the reader.
