This also shows the reader that the characters on the ranch have no way out of their loneliness-any attempt will just lead them into danger.
Steinbeck shows the reader that Crooks is lonely on the ranch because of the prejudice he receives for being black, something which was not uncommon in 1930s America.
In Section Three of the novel, Whir is keen to talk to George and Steinbeck tells us that Whit is "not interested in his cards." Whit is not interested in playing cards not long after the game has begun.
This shows the reader that all Whit wants is someone to talk to talk to so, in this way, he wants to find a way out of his loneliness.
