What contexts can you think of that have yet to come up? So far these have appeared (In brackets are the characters it was about)

- Social Hierarchy (Slim, Is this even context???)
- Racism (Crooks)
- Women (Curley's Wife)
-General life of ranch workers (Presentation of ranch workers)
- Relationships and General Context (George and Lennie)
- Context in general (Candy) I think this one could be about Women, Prejudice etc not just one context

So from what I gather, the American Dream, Isolation (Although George and Lennie sort of covered that), what else has yet to appear? The only characters who haven't appeared are Curley, Carlson and Lennie on his own. I'd guess that these could be their respective contexts

Curley - General context, or treatment of women?
Carlson - General context, or life on the ranch
Lennie - Dreams (Foreshadowing is used, He's child-like so the dream sounds child-like also etc.)

What do you think, what other contexts have I not mentioned, what Character could come up, and what could their context be?
