Steinbeck was trying to make Crooks appear completely different to George and Lennie’s characters. While George and Lennie have each other, Crooks only has his books, and even those books don’t make him happy, he says, “ain’t no good.
The ad of the house in the paper symbolizes the American Dream but the house in reality symbolizes deceit as Jurgis finds out that the ad is untruthful and misleading. The helpless hogs on the conveyor belt foreshadow Jurgis’s powerless future since he is unable to overcome life in the lower class due to various hardships. Sinclair’s use of word choice helps portray the ugliness of human existence for allowing the distribution of poorly sanitized meat, and the struggles of living in society’s lower class in
This quote also connects back to Steinbeck’s novel Of Mice and Men, and the character Crooks because of his race other workers on the ranch treat him differently. He is separated from other workers, and he also can’t go in the bunkhouse where all the other guys stay. Other workers on the ranch use offending words to describe him. In Chapter 2, Candy describes Crooks using this quote “The guys wouldn’t let him use his feet, so that nigger got him. If he coulda use his feet, Smitty says he woulda killed the nigger” (Steinbeck 20).

Salves in America were treated very poorly, Crooks is an example of this because he is forced to sleep in the barn while the other workers sleep in cabins. His social status limits him from interactions with other people and he expresses his feelings in chapter 4, "A guy needs somebody-to be near him.' He whined, 'A guy goes nuts if he ain't got nobody. Nobody never gets to heaven, and nobody gets no land."

At the time, many African Americans suffered from the same problems of isolation from society, for there was no civil rights movement to give them equal respect, pay, or authority as other people. Even today, racism is a major issue
