John Steinbeck wants the american dream to seem foolish because he has people talk about owning a ranch/ people lost all of their money. People lost all of their money do to the stock market crashes in 1926. George takes care of Lennie by making sure he has food in the woods/ “telling him where he needs to go to hide if he gets in trouble (15).”George tells Lennie to to stay away from Curley’s wife.
I ain’t much good, but I could cook and tend chickens and hoe the garden some.’ ”(59). Candy thinks of himself as a useless old man with only one arm. However, Candy wants to help George and Lennie’s dream so he can at least be helpful before he dies of old age. He knows he is going to be fired soon so he’s giving the money to George and Lennie. Candy also tells Crooks about George and Lennie’s dream and invites him in on it.
The fact that companionship is necessary for a good life is well demonstrated by George. For example, George one of the main characters was talking to Lennie about how hard it is working on the ranches when he said, "Guys like us, that work on ranches, are the loneliest guys in the world. They got no family. They don't belong no place. They come to a ranch an' work up a stake and then they go inta town and blow their stake, and the first thing you know they're poundin' their tail on some other ranch.

However, this notion comes with the realization that mankind is and has always been cruel and terrifying, even to each other. Although some people tend to believe that they live in a perfect society, most people have never really explored the dark side of themselves until analyzing the works of Edgar Allen Poe.

George and Lennie are traveling farmers searching for work, they don’t have a permanent home. However, they have a dream of owning their own farm and Lennie gets to tame the rabbits.

Willy is tired, confused, and argumentative, but he loves his son and tried to conform Biff into an enthusiastic, optimistic and confident salesman. Willy is salesman, who returns early from a business trip. After almost collapsing several times, he is enlightened and realized that he should perhaps change his job to once in which he will not be required to travel.
