Shattered Dreams: A Marxist analysis Of Mice and Men According to Idowu Koyenikan, a highly recognized financial consultant and frequently quoted author, “It takes nothing to stay in poverty, but everything to break free from it”(Koyenikan).

While reading, I have caught onto many morals. Steinbeck, the author of the novel, Of Mice and Men, has engaged many readers throughout his written morals. Referring to one of my favorite morals from the novel, Steinbeck educates how the reader should not have their own situation decided from another. As for an example, the isolated character, Candy, who experienced having his own decision settled for him by the character, Carlson. What Steinbeck conveys is that when your decision is made from another, he's meaning that the reader has to decide for their own situation because it's their life.
Optimism in the face of sorrow Oscar Wilde once said, “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” In Of Mice and Men By John Steinbeck, the characters and their dreams are optimistic. Despite the book's somber plot, and the many oppressive setbacks they face, the characters remain intent on reaching their dreams. John Steinbeck gives a sense of hope for the characters by creating humble and attainable dreams. Since the plot of the novel only takes place in four days, the story exposes the past and present but keeps the future concealed.
Many people in this world are influential. Good or bad their words are shared across everywhere they wish. However, there is a man I believe is the most inspirational person in my life. The man in question? Gene Wilder.

Everyday, everyone wakes up and puts on their mask; whether the mask hides feelings, emotions or both from the other people, everyone has one. The masks hide pain and sadness upon entering society, where everyone walks around without expressing their feelings. Transcendentalism teaches these people to speak their minds and we live freely without having to hide who they really are and how they really feel. Everyone has their demons, and as we enter society they have to be covered with the “mask” in order to cooperate with society “we wear the mask that grins and lies, it hides our cheeks and shades our eyes.” (Dunbar, Mask)
Many of best-seller books have been directed to become movies. In this case, the film version of the novel Of Mice and Men was published in 1937 where the era of Depression had its presence. The movie, directed by Gary Sinise, (also acted as George) was adopted in 1992. In Of Mice and Men, George and Lennie were considered as “family” and portrayed as nomads because of working at different ranches. George and Lennie anticipated owning their own farm, but since Lennie suffocated Curley’s wife, (the boss’s daughter-in-law) their dreams have been ruined.
