For Americans to the wide and general dream has a name. It is called “the American Way of Life.” No one can define it or point to any one person or group who lives it, but it is very real nevertheless, perhaps more real than that equally remote dream the Russians call Communism”.
Edison and many others worked for freedom for these people and risked their life doing it.

Nevertheless, his desire could not be fulfilled because he maddened a god. As a consequence, Odysseus was kept away from Ithaca.
He isn’t a savage like the others, who pushed Piggy away. Simon could also be considered a guide because he understood more about what was going on better than the others. He was able to figure out that the monster wasn’t really a monster. But no one ever listened to Simon, they made him an outcast, when really he could have helped them a lot.

The way you speak says a lot about you. Victor created his creature in a manner that even he was afraid of it and ran off, so he never had the opportunity to show him how to speak. However, the monster learned to speak and act in a very proper manner. The eloquence and persuasiveness make it easier as a reader to sympathise with Victor’s creation because you learn he’s not evil, has humane characteristics, and forget he’s a monster.

I also believe that George did the wrong thing because Lennie is his family, and has been with him through it all. George could have told him to go to the caves.

The idea of “normal” that I had in my mind would not have been a good place for Alan to go. This normal life for Alan would be one of the hardest things for him because he was never raised to be normal. After taking time to talk with Alan and hear more about his parents, I learned that his life was very protected and he was never really able to explore anything or understand the basic principles of life and the interactions he has with other humans. Because Alan worshiped these horses so much, he almost valued them as humans, giving him a false sense of identity of who he really was. This then meant that when he had encounters with humans like the time he was almost very intimate with Jill, he said he couldn’t stand her
