Curley is a character who thinks he is simply the best and because of his boxing career he has over confidence and thinks he is better than all. This bought him to pick on Lennie as he was mentally disable and acts as a child. This made him as a bully as he didnt have many friends to spend time with; again loneliness leads to many problems like this. He married a women to feel as little less lonely but unfortunately just after 2 weeks they hated each other. I thnk the main reason for this is his anger over everything and his over protectiveness. As everyone knows he would never be the man of his father his rude, to easily annoyed and has a short temper. This lend to the fight with Lennie where his hand was cut/ broken. Tragically Lennie was blamed for this and his angry grew further with Lennie.
Quote on crooks words Spose you didnt have nobody. Spose you couldnt go into the bunk house and play rummy cause you was black. Howd you like that? Spose you had to sit out here an read books¦Books aint no good. A guy needs somebody to be near him¦A guy goes nuts if he aint got nobody. Dont make no difference who the guy is, longs he with you¦I tell ya a guy gets too lonely an he gets sick. This quote shows clear evidence that Crooks is lonely and depressed, therefore shows his quest for some human company.
To reduce his loneliness he reads books but thinks that books arent as great as a human relationship. Also is partly frustrated of the racial prejudices directed towards him. The way he structures it is also great to read such as Spose is repeated in a way as if everything is against him. Crooks also know that his colour is the only reason for his loneliness and that the other factors arent the reason for him being left alone. Why aint you wanted ? Lennie asked. Cause Im black. They play cards in there, but I cant play because Im black. They say I stink. This is shown half the way through the story on page 68. He is therefore 100% sure that nothing can stop his nightmare.
On the other hands Lennie who is mentally disable but very tall and strong has a friend George. He cares for Lennie and tries to make him comfortable and less lonely. Lennie is picked on by many people because of his disable; here Curley picks on him about Lennie tries to not talk back as he doesnt want George to loss him job again.
Lennie is lonely because of the fact that he is mentally disabled to the mind of a child; therefore would like a child to play with instead of adults and lifting things for business, money and food. He acts innocent and is unable to tell the different between life and death as many rabbit have been killed under his arms without him knowing; this lend to George not allowing his to play with rabbits he loves. The problem with him is his lack of knowledge, intelligence and safeness, as this causes a lot of problems when combined with his strength because he doesnt know when to stop. This makes everyone look as if he is dangerous making them stay away from him leading to loneliness.
Additionally all this these point together is what makes each character in the story lonely and affects the minds of everyone. Different factors affect each person resulting in a total loneliness.
