So I'm in y11 and doing edexcel igcse english lit, of mice and men. I'm trying to plan possible essays depending on which character comes up but im struggling. Could anyone suggest points i can make about any of the characters but especially Candy, Curley, Curley's wife, Crooks and Slim. Also how do i know which quotes to learn for each character? Thank you, any advice appreciated

You can say that curlys wife is seen as a sexual figure as the men are attracted to her and due to the author not giving her a name shows how insignificant women who acted like the wife seemed in the 20thcentury especially coz women and men were both needed to work in the Great Depression. At the end the wife is killed which shows how the stereotype of stay at home wife painting was killed off by society itself as women had to work more and become the breadwinners of their families.

I believe that lenny was compared to animals throughout the book too right? You can make comments on that as well
