Curleys wife is very flirty to say the least.She give other workers the “eye”. She come to the bunckhouse looking for Curley but I think she just wanted to get a look at the new workers(Gerogre and Lennie).

Comment by doplato

Curley’s wife is very flirty. Candy refers to her as a “tart” because she gives everyone on the ranch the ranch the eye. I also think she went to the bunkhouse to check out George and Lennie. She was very playful and flirty.

Comment by kaitlin lafferty

I agree with the other comments, she is very flirty and comes to the ranchhouse just to play around with other guys. I would like to know why she was in a hurry and got anxious when she heard Curley was looking for her.

What does this tell you about Curley’s marriage?

Comment by Miss Fowler

The woman in the doorway of the bunkhouse is Curley’s wife. We know that she is a “tart”.. I think that she comes to the bunkhouse to flirt with George and Lennie. She is very playful and was trying to make George and Lennie have feelings for her.

Comment by psgeiger

The women that is in the doorway is Curley’s wife. We are told that she is a “tart” and it’s obvious that she is very easy and not very loyal when she comes into the bunkhouse to flirt with George and Lennie.

Comment by blueyedbabiix022

The woman that Curly is married to must still must want someones elses attention. Maybe Curly isn’t such a good husband, or maybe he doesn’t give her enough support or attention in her life. Whatever the reason, I think his wife acts in the flirty manner because their is something missing in their relationship.

Miss Fowler- this would tell you that Curlys marrage with his wife isn’t a verry stong relationship.

Comment by epszczolkowski

I think that she came in the bunkhouse to see what Lennie and George look like and to flirt with them because thats the kind of person that she is.

I think that Curly’s wife is very easy and flirts with everyone just about and I think she went to the bunk house to flirt.

Comment by Jacquiem

i agree with everyone here i also belive that Curley’s relationship is weak.

Comment by doplato

i agree with whoever called her a tart and i think she’s going to start trouble later on in the book.

Comment by ice165

The other characters in the bookcalld her a tart. They call her that because she flirts with everyone on the farm. I think she will start something later in the book.

Comment by jktubman

Curly’s wife is very flirty to all the guys in the ranch and I agree with the people who say that she will start trouble later in the book.

Comment by rsarah

We know Curleys wife is known to be a flirt. She also has a reputation to be “tart”. I think she comes to the bunk house to see who the new guys are. She also might have come to be noticed and makee her presence felt.

Comment by gdpeter

Curly’s wife is a flirt and likes to be checked out by other guys because she knows she looks good. I think she’s going to start trouble for George and Lennie.

Comment by taylorrr

All – Do you think Curley’s wife realizes the consequences of her flirting?

Comment by Miss Fowler

I agree with doplato.. that she is going into thte bunkhouse to look at other workers. Maybe because she is bored with Curley. No i do not think she understands the consequences of flirting. I think tis because she does it.

Comment by fraglerock

Curley’s wife is a tramp and i think she is because she is the only girl on the ranch and i think she wants attention. I think she came into the bunkhouse because she saw new men and wanted to intruduce himself

Comment by proxballa

i don’t think Curley’s wife realizes the consequenses if her actions becaue, shes probably reallt ditzzy.

Comment by doplato

Curley’s wife is a ” tart “. Candy says that he gives people the eye, which could mean she flirts with these people. She comes into the doorway, like proxballa says, she wants people to notice her.

Comment by rsborn

I agree with everyone by calling her a “tart” she is too flirty to be a wife. If she is acting like this she should not be married.

Comment by wamanda

It depends on the situation. You should never consider someone a tart even in the book. You do not know the background, Do you know her actual opinion on her marriage with Curley? Is she happy? She is the only woman on the ranch, Do not you think she was forced into the marriage?

Comment by Lukáš Lichnovský

She is definetley a “tart.” She hasn;t been married very long and she’s already flirting with half of the men working on the ranch. It’s really pathetic. I think she came to the bunkhouse just to see the new guys.

Comment by adesi

miss fowler i think curly’s wife wants to ruin the businnes and get curlys money

Comment by mudisfun10

I think Curley’s wife is a big flirt, and I agree with mudisfun because that could be a possibility. I am just curious as to why she comes to the house to flirt, and then gets anxious when she hears Curley’s looking for her.

Comment by kligsfosho

Curley’s wife and Curley, take advantage of their assessts to make others jealous. Curley’s wife likes to show herself off to everybody and Curley likes to show off what he has.

Comment by laurenxxs

Miss Fowler- Curleys Wife probably does not relize the consequences of her flirting. It might just be her personality its just naturaul for her to flirt with other people.

Comment by gdpeter

Curley’s wife is a tart, and she’s flirty. She probably went to the bunkhouse to check out George and Lennie to see if she liked them. She also just likes the attention of all the men.
