    It's hard to decide on what is an important quotation. Tbh it's up to personal preference to what one decides is important- it's all about what you can write about to get the best grade possible.

    If you're doing WJEC then I'm praying for the mood and atmosphere of the final chapter for the extract question; and the essay being the importance of Curley's Wife or the symbolism of hands.

    I have no idea about other exam boards

    Basically, Curley with his soft and hard hand; then it gets crushed. Candy's missing a hand. Crooks has to use a hand to add linament. George shoots Lennie with his right hand and stares 'at his right hand which held the gun' (quote?). Slim's hands are 'large and lean... delicate'. Lennie's hands are like 'paws'. Lennie underestimates his own strength with his hands; seems to not have control of them when he kills Curley's Wife. CW's hands are more feminine, I think she has nail polish etc.

    It's a broad topic; something my English teacher keeps going on about.
