Curley's wife wanted to go to Hollywood and be in the "pictures". She explains she met a guy that said he would do that for her but he never wrote back. Curley's wife desperately wanted to feel like somebody special. She wanted to leave her little life in her small town behind with visions of grandeur. This is the familiar theme of loneliness an isolation so prevalent in this novella except from a young woman's point of view.
