Character: Curley's Wife
Symbol: Light and Dark
Curley's wife is not given a name throughout the novel, and she is known as Curley's wife. Most of the workers call her ugly, hurtful names because she runs around the ranch supposedly looking for her husband. Although, in reality, she knows exactly where he is. As she is the only girl on the ranch and has nobody to talk to or gossip to, she admits to being very lonely. She brags and reflects a lot on her past and how she was offered, multiple times, a job in the pictures.
In each chapter, light and dark have been seen showing the good and the bad. In this chapter it is really shown by the inside of the barn being dark and outside being bright. When Lennie is inside the barn, one of Slims dog loses its life and then Lennie accidentally kill Curley's wife. As all of that is happening inside the dark barn, George is outside in the sun, playing an innocent game of horseshoes with his friends.
Lennie was told by George repetitively not to talk to Curley's wife. He obeyed Georges orders until she walked into the barn and started making conversation with Lennie. After her talking to him for a while, Lennie quit resisting her and let her in. They sat in the barn together talking about her past and that she is perfectly harmless. Lennie stops worrying and eventually forgets about Georges strict orders. The two talk about their own lives not fully listening to the other stories.
