Cerebrating about the topic, I cannot avail but cerebrate about my current work I do with my Pawpaw. Often when I come to work for him, it becomes pellucid that I misunderstand him and his co-ascendant figure. They bark out orders obscure and expect you to read their mind and when you do not do the job right they act like they told you in full detail what needed to be done. One example I have is back about months ago, Buck, my co-ascendant figure, wanted me to take a tractor with an affixed bush hog and go cut grass.

Since 1931 when James Truslow Adams first created the phrase “the American Dream”, people believed that America continuously offered everyone an equal opportunity to be successful. John Steinbeck’s novella, Of Mice and Men, was set during the Great Depression. Farms were struck hard during the Depression, and the two main characters George and Lennie were farm hands during this time. They had experienced the misunderstandings of other farm hands in terms of Lennie’s mental disability, but they were trying to earn enough money to buy their own farm. The idea of this farm drove Lennie and George to keep working, and like many others during this time they hoped to achieve this dream.
James Truslow Adams defines the American Dream as the “dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement” (The American Dream). An idea sought after by millions of people is the American Dream; they believe there is a reward for hard work and that that reward is happiness and prosperity. The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men, and The Crucible are all works, which portray the pursuit and destruction of the American Dream. Jay Gatsby’s American dream was to marry the woman he loved. This is evident throughout the novel; Gatsby is determined to transform his life from dirt to diamonds all to be a suitable man for Daisy.

This story seems to comfort Lennie whenever he is stressed or worried. Lennie's knows this story by heart, but he always has George tell it because “it ain’t the same if [Lennie] tells it” (Steinbeck 14). George and Lennie’s dream, in their mind, isn’t coming anytime soon, until Candy overhears them talking about it.
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). Idowu emphasizes how people can not expect to change their economic state easily without a mindset of desperation to succeed.
