Why did Crooks change his mind after Curley’s wife left the bunkhouse?In chapter 4

In the novel ‘Of Mice and Men’ by John Steinbeck, Curly’s wife illustrates one of the themes – power – when she has the cheek, front and sheer nerve to invade a person’s privacy and personal space. She should not be anywhere near the bunkhouse or rooms and has no proper business there. Yet she flaunts her power over poor black Crooks by reminding him of his hopeless station in life, and that there is nothing he can do about her actions. She exploits his powerlessness to do anything about her invasion by threatening him with ‘framing him’ for the very sorts of misdemeanours that Lennie Small is actually guilty of. She has the power of color and staus – even though she is a woman. Crooks remembers why they are all where they are.
