Crooks' Role

MICMEN-4LP8GK

Steinbeck makes it a point to describe Crooks' bunk, then spends a whole chapter on conversations between Crooks and some of the others. In doing so, he gives readers an in-depth look at Crooks' character, more in-depth than he does for most of the other minor characters.

What is the MOST LIKELY reason for this?

A

Because Steinbeck did not want to be accused of being a racist.

B

Because Crooks plays a key role in the main conflict.

C

Because Crooks is the main character in a parallel plot.

D

Because he is the character readers are least likely to understand without further development.

E

Because Crooks represents a segment of 1930s society.
