The very next day, when she backs down from a fight, she says “I can take being called a coward for him. I felt extremely noble for having remembered” (Lee 102). This quote shows that Scout is not, in fact, deeply hurt by her father’s choices and is actually proud of him.

This historical time period inspires writers such as John Steinbeck to write and inform others about the hardships of the 1930’s. Steinbeck centers Of Mice and Men to exhibit how life’s difficulties inhibited the American Dream. The Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and many acts of inequality made an impact on the American Dream in this time period. John Steinbeck tells about the American Dream using rhetorical devices such as parallel structures, paradox and pathos. In Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, the use of parallelism is seen to show how disabilities can destroy the American Dream.

To be prideful is human nature, even when it hasn 't been earned. Being proud of who you are and what you have accomplished is an important part of everyone 's life, but sometimes we are prideful without something to be proud of. This kind of pride is shown in the play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry through the character Walter Younger. He enters the play with a false sense of pride in being a man, despite the fact that he is a chauffeur who is struggling to support his family. Throughout the plot, he struggles with acceptance of his social status and economical situations, but ends up achieving true fulfillment in simply being proud of who he and his family are as people with aspirations.

Steinbeck’s book, though found to be offensive over the years, remains a constant within the literature curriculum in high schools along with other of the author’s books”(Examiner,Steinbeck 's Controversial).
