The fact that Curleys wife is not given a name foreshadows her own isolation In fact probably reason why she is not given a name is because she is totally hidden from the world and nobody knows her as anyone else She is always referred to as Curleys wife a ghost to the world This emphasizes her complete isolation form the rest of the characters in the novel She is a character without sympathy but she can be vicious She is a victim of an empty life and a meaningless one Meaningless due to the fact that she discovers that her husband aint a nice fella and that there is no one to care for her She has wonderful dreams of being a Hollywood star but all her dreams are crushed by the insensitivity towards her shown by the other characters She is forever isolated on a ranch with a bunch of bindle bums to live out her days as a slave to loneliness However her loneliness and boredom lead her to discover that Lennie is the one responsible that broke Curleys hand She approaches Lennie several times and Lennie tries to avoid her but later sympathizes with her over the loss of his pup At which point a terrible coincidence appears They both like soft things this is when Lennie is invited to feel how soft her hair is This invitation seals the fate of a lonely girls soul to an early deathNow the novel takes a step toward a tragedy With the killing of Curleys wife Lennie has signed his own death warrant At the end of the novel loneliness is displayed one last time I believe now that Lennie is gone George is doomed to suffer the same fate as Curleys wife A life of complete isolation both from his new friends and the world George will disappear just as his dream of his own ranch did when Lennie was killed
