    As far as I know, Curley has never come up but I think Adzkii786 is totally right; after hearing about the hellish biology unit 1 paper it really could be anything

    Oh and Slim!
    I'm pretty okay with all the characters, I hope its Curley or Carlson.
    If it's Slim or Whitt, I'll probably cry because they are the characters I know least about.

    Oh sorry. I was sure she said Curley and Lennie, unles she said Curleys wife, but oh well.
    Is this for AQA?

    I was hoping it wouldn't be Lennie anyway because there's so much that you can write about him that I'd probably panic and make really awful points.

    I don't think Whit and Carlson will come up because they are too minor, Curley can be link to hierarchy and treatment to his wife but there isn't much to talk about.

    For the extract question I think it could be Candy's dog being shot from chapter 3. For the part b questions, it could be on animal imagery and how the different characters are associated with animals and how that reflects society's values and ideals.

    Carlson could come up linked to a theme, I heard something like masculinity might come up for one of the exam companies. If masculinity came up, you could probably talk about men were just for work and for using women for sex which can be related to the whorehouses as the men are provided with sex when they want it. However, emotions can be discussed, due to the stereotypes for men were to be macho and strong resulting in them not showing emotions which can be linked to Carlson as he is the one to suggest killing Candy's dog and eventually shoots it. Also, Carlson has the last line in the novel which is 'Now what the hell ya suppose is eatin' them two guys?' which he says to Curley which implies that Carlson doesn't understand the strong relationship between Lennie and George and the suffering George just went through to shoot Lennie, his lifelong companion.

    my class actually had a lesson about Carlson and how he linked to the American Dream and some other stuff and I have some very detailed notes about him, so he could come up! But yeah he doesn't really have much of a part. He only shows up at the end and when the dog gets shot.
