  6. 6. The characterisation of Crooks as a lonely character is developed in Chapter four. Steinbeck describes the character as ‘a proud, aloof man. He kept his distance and demanded that other people keep theirs.’ The author seems to be suggesting that Crooks’ isolation is self-imposed. The word ‘proud’ suggests Crooks’ intelligence and dignity and conveys the idea that he is acutely aware of his prejudicial treatment. ‘Aloof’ also suggests that his disinterest is conspicuous. The author seems to be exploring the idea that loneliness can be a way of protection and this real danger is made more obvious later in the chapter when Curley’s wife threatens him.
