Curley's wife is perhaps the loneliest character in the novel. She has become so insignificant that Steinbeck doesn't even give her a name. She is merely a possession. She spends her time floating from cabin to cabin in the guise of "looking" for her abusive husband. IN reality she merely craves attention. She came from Salinas and met Curley at the Riverside Dance Palace. She is representative of crushed dreams and wasted potential.
