Of Mice and Men Theme
By Hershuay Francisco
"The Impossibility of the American Dream"
This ideal happened much in the story. Many of the characters wished for their desires, though in the end, not being able to complete these. Even Crooks statement, though having a dream himself, was entirely true when being compared to others dreams: "such paradises of freedom, contentment, and safety are not to be found in this world". Reality quickly took these dreams down and made them often completely unable to obtain in the story, such as the act of death.
