Of Mice and Men captures all of the aspects of the time period that affect the dreams of the characters. Whether it be race, gender, or disability no character lets their dream be out of reach. The characters’ loneliness is also diminished because they form friendships and come together to form a dream that includes them all. Lennie can never reach his dream because of his cruel fate, Curley’s Wife never reaches hers, and the other men fall short in achieving their dream, as well. The Great Depression was a time in which it was hard to pursue a dream and even harder to achieve it.
All throughout the story Tom and his wife seem to argue very much. Tom never wanted to please his wife and would never try or do anything to please her. Also, both Tom and his wife were so miserable in their marriage they cheated on eachother. “... with the loss of his wife, for he was a man of fortitude. He even felt something like gratitude towards the black woodsman, who, he considered had done him a kindness.” This quote explains how cheerful was upon realizing the devil had taken his wife and felt as if the devil did him a favor.

People Affected by Loneliness Loneliness can make anyone affected by it very depressing and sad to see. It is seen in Of Mice and Men in many characters that are prominent in the story. The main ones are Crooks (the black stable hand), Candy (the old worker with his old dog), and Curley’s wife (who is ignored so that they do not get into trouble).

When he is in his cave alone, Grendel states, ““Why can’t I have someone to talk to?” I said. The stars said nothing, but I pretended to ignore the rudeness.” (Gardner 53) While Grendel isn’t completely alone because he has his mother, the difference in language prevents communication or connection that would normally be provided.

Hurst suggests that expectations are also a form of egotism that can lead to resentment; hence coming into conflict with one’s identity, such as alteration and remorse. Doodle’s desire was to be loved and supported by his family. He was invalid - he could not walk; thus everyone had low expectations towards him and thought he would die except for Aunt Nicey.
