Okay, I'm currently writing this story where there is a character (I'll call her X) who is married to her husband. He is the main antagonist, and in love with another woman. X is never given a name in the text (she has a name in my head, but I will never reveal it). She is always referred to as "his wife" or "his woman" and entirely in relation to him, making this impression that her identity does not exist without him. I got this idea from Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men", where Curley's wife is only referred to as "Curley's wife" throughout. I want to keep X that way to show she is seen as little more than an object by her husband and all the other characters, and how all the other characters are disengaged from her and her problems. Conversely, she has one of the most emotional, tragic plot lines in the story, including suicide, miscarriage, domestic abuse, alcoholism etc, all shown from other characters perspectives (mainly her husband's). I want readers to empathise with her, but do you think that is possible when she has no name and no POV of her own?
