John Steinbeck’s novel ‘Of Mice and Men’ is about the impossibility of the American dream and how the characters dreams are destroyed throughout the novel.
Some of the characters as the novel goes on reveal that they have dreams for the future. Curley’s wife’s dream is to be a famous Hollywood actress. Her dream is ruined by the Hollywood director who promised to contact her about her acting career but never has. Also by her marriage to Curley.
Crook’s dream is simply for equality among everybody. During this time a lot of people were racist and discriminated against anyone who was of a different race so racism and the attitudes of others destroy his dream.
Lennie and George’s dream is to own a place in order to work and live in where they can have cows, pigs, rabbits and other animals.
