    You could write about how close Lennie and George are
    For example: How there is room for both of them to walk on the path (at the start) but Lennie still chooses to walk behind George, this could show how dependant Lennie is on George and how he would follow George anywhere. But it could also show that George is in control and leading Lennie.

    George and Slim:
    How in one of the chapters (cant remember) George and Slim are talking and he takes on the tone of confession to Slim who is acting like a priest. Ever thought that Slim is perceived as a higher power with the connotations from 'Prince of the ranch' and 'godlike'? George feels that he is able to talk to slim without being judged compared to how other people on the ranch would judge him

    Women:
    How is Curleys wife spoken about?
    She is so worthless that Steinbeck doesnt even address her as her own person - just a possession of Curleys.
    She is all in red when she first comes in which could give the connotations of: danger, sex, love, romance, ect

    Crooks (black people)
    He is disabled
    Even Curleys wife has a higher status than him
    Is moody with everyone
    Has 'gold rimmed spectacles' which could suggest some knowledge but they are 'hung up' which could show that you dont need to be intelligent to work on a farm

    Hope this helps you, ask me if you need anymore help

    Revise relationships between characters, especially the hierarchy of power/authority.
