“Hopes and dreams help people to survive even if they never become real” – “Of mice and men” In the novel “Of mice and men”, there are many examples where characters have dreams but reality is different.

Eileen Galvez 1-27-12 310 BOOK: Of Mice and Men AUTHOR: John Steinbeck TASK: Response Journal Background: Steinbeck wrote this novel during the great depression.

Of Mice and Men In Of Mice and Men lots of the characters have many troubles and problems: primarily with loneliness and segregation for being different which make you sympathize the characters. Lennie is the most obvious character to sympathize as he gets killed at the end of the novella and seems to have a child like mind as shown by how Slim notices this by saying “He jes like a kid” Steinbeck shows Lennie as childlike to show that Lennie is innocent, this is used to show that when Lennie does something wrong he does not do this to be cruel but he is just oblivious to what he is doing. Secondly, Steinbeck likens Lennie to an animal through the way Lennie moves; “dragging his feet a little, the way a bear drags his paws” which shows Lennies vulnerability as when he is killed he is not aware of what is going to happen which is similar to how the way Old Candy’s dog was killed as the dog did not know what was going to happen to it and just followed Carlson unaware of Carlson’s intentions; this trusting nature of Lennie makes the reader sympathize him.

In John Steinbeck’s OF MICE AND MEN, Lennie Smalls and George Milton believe they have a bright future, during dreadful times of the Great Depression, because they have a dream. They have been migrant workers for a good portion of their lives, and decide they need a change. They don’t want to work for anyone else, rather have their own land. Although George and Lennie believe their ambition is well planned, they soon realize their dream is only up to fate.
She then goes onto talking about herself and how she ‘coulda made something’ of herself and that she only married Curley on the rebound. This then starts to make the reader feel sorry for her and rethink their opinion of her. She then continues to say ‘I don’t like Curley, he aint a nice fella’ which creates even more empathy toward her from the reader. This may be because she hasn’t achieved her dream and is living as part of someone else’s- on the rebound. Consequently her death, towards the end of the novel, creates a totally different image of her by the
She says because I was on’y fifteen. But the guy says I coulda. If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin like Hurley 2 this, you bet.” (Steinbeck 88) Daisy from the Great Gatsby dream was to be married to her husband because she lost the chance of becoming famous.
