Curley Curley is a violent bully Though a small man he can get away with his aggression because he is the son of the boss Also of course he used to be a boxer He treats the men badly and his wife even worse - hes only been married a short time but is already leaving her for the women in townGeorge has to shoot Lennie at the end to save him from what Curley would do otherwise Since Lennie broke Curleys hand retribution would surely be severe Curleys wife Curleys wife is described by Candy as a tart but as an excuse we can say that she is very lonely She claims she could have been a movie star but instead she has ended up married to Curley As the only woman on the ranch she is an outsider in a way as much a victim as Lennie She tries to be nice to Slim and sees a friend in Lennie but her situation leads to her behaviour which leads to her death It is quite important that she doesnt have a name because by being called Curleys wife she is seen as a possession something belonging to Curley rather than a person in her own right She is just described as a tart but little more is known about her Maybe its because of this that she enjoys teasing Lennie and the others on the ranch she knows Curley does not approve and it is a way of getting her own sense of individuality back
