John Steinbeck represents Curley's wife as a troublemaker who brings ruin to men and drives them mad. We first hear about her in the opening pages of the novella where all the men call her a 'tramp' 'tart' and a 'bitch'. This creates a vivid image in the readers mind and gives her a bad name before we even meet her. When we meet her in chapter two she flirts with Lennie. This gives George the impression that the things the other men were saying are true and they are right about Curley's wife. Then, we see her in chapter four when she confronts Lennie, Crooks and Candy about how Curley injured his hand, but she doesn't believe them and then she says '' An' what am I doin'? Standin here talkin' to a bunch of bindle stiffs – a nigger an' dum-dum and a lousy ol' sheep – an likin' it because they aint nobody else''. She admits being dissatisfied with her life and at that moment shows her vulnerability, just like when she talks to Lennie later on about her dream of becoming a movie star. She’s a vixen in fancy red mules, who looks on the weaknesses of other people – Lennie’s mental handicap, Candy's old age and the colour of Crooks' skin.
The biggest mistake she makes is when she goes in Crooks' room Inzamam-ul-Haq About this sound pronunciation (help·info);Punjabi, Urdu: انضمام الحق‎; born 3 March 1970[1]), also known as Inzy, is a former Pakistani cricketer. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen Pakistan has produced. He is the leading run scorer for Pakistan in One-Day Cricket and second-highest run scorer for Pakistan in Test cricket, after Javed Miandad. He was the captain of the Pakistan national cricket team from 2003-07 and is considered to be one of the best leaders in Pakistan Cricket history.
Inzamam rose to fame in the semi-final of the 1992 Cricket World Cup, in which he scored 60 off 37 balls against a strong New Zealand team.[2] His strong batting performance also propelled Pakistan to victory in the final of the 1992 Cricket World Cup. He remained one of the team's leading batsmen throughout the decade in both Test and ODI cricket. In 2003, he was appointed captain of the Pakistan team. His tenure as captain ended after Pakistan's early exit from the 2007 Cricket World Cup. On 5 October 2007, Inzamam retired from international cricket following the second Test match against South Africa, falling three runs short of Javed Miandad as Pakistan's leading run scorer in Test cricket. Following his retirement, he joined the Indian Cricket League, captaining the Hyderabad Heroes in the inaugural edition of the Twenty20 competition. In the ICL's second edition, he captained the Lahore Badshahs, a team composed entirely of Pakistani cricketers.
Inzamam-ul-Haq is a prominent member of the Tablighi Jamaat, an Islamic missionary organisation, and remains an influential personality in Pakistan cricket.Inzamam made his (ODI) debut in a home series against West Indies in 1991, and made a good start to his career by scoring 20 and 60 runs in two matches against West Indies. This was followed by 48, 60, 101, and 117 runs against Sri Lanka.
Handpicked by former Pakistan captain Imran Khan for the 1992 Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, 22-year-old Inzamam was relatively unheard of before the tournament. To the surprise of many he was persevered with throughout the tournament, coming in at various positions in the batting line-up, despite not being very successful early on. Yet it was his performances at the most crucial stage of the competition that made fans and summarisers take note. Inzamam rose to fame in Pakistan's dramatic semi-final against New Zealand at Auckland. With his side in a precarious position, chasing 262 against an impressive New Zealand side, he hit a fiery 60 run innings from just 37 balls to rescue his side and guide them into the final.[3][4] The innings was regarded as one of the finest World Cup performances.[5] He hit a massive six in that match which was described
