characters will probably be curley's wife, george, or slim. maybe curley or carlson (very unlikely though since he's a minor character and hasn't appeared ever on past papers)

yes november 2023 was lennie and setting, may 2023 was slim and power and the jan 2023 papers were crooks and respect, curley’s wife and animals. so i don’t think any of those 4 characters or themes will come up.

yea i agree, they haven't asked about relationships and friendships, but they have asked about lennie recently... maybe they will ask about candy's relationship with the ranch workers or crooks' relationships?

curley was asked quite recently, like within the last 2/3 years... they asked about how curley is presented as a character and they provided the quote; "Curley is like a bunch of little guys, he hates big guys"

Omgg it was Curley and his wife. 😭 how did everyone find it?
I wasn't too big of a fan of 'how is death important'

I did death in survival of the fittest demonstrated with Candy's dog and Lennie, the death of the characters' dreams (George and Lennie's coinciding with Lennie's death), and the death that Lennie accidentally creates (the mice, the puppy and Curley's Wife) which Steinbeck uses as a symbol of the powers systemic in society which prevent the itinerant worker from escaping a repetitive and meaningless life

yea i also did curley... the death thing stumped me, i mean i know what to talk about but curley is so good to write about. I wrote about how he is presented as powerful, insecure and how steinbeck uses him to criticise the roles of women in the 1930s USA

I think maybe you do the non-regional paper? cuz for the regional paper the questions were dreams and curley and his wife’s relationship but for the non-regional it was death and smth else
