His behaviour and mindset following the revelation that his dream is no longer obtainable clearly indicate that George no longer believes in his dream, he has acknowledged the fact that his dream is no longer attainable. When George discovers that Lennie has killed Curley’s wife, he ignores Candy’s pleas to maintain hope that their dream can come true, rather he begins to envision himself living the life of a lonely migrant farm worker. A quote that illustrates this belief can be found on page 93 where George states “I’ll work my month an’ I’ll take my fifty bucks an’ I’ll stay all night in some lousy cat house. Or I’ll set in some pool room till ever’body goes home. An’ then I’ll come back an’ work another month an’ I’ll have fifty bucks more.” Here John Steinbeck uses repetition to make it abundantly clear to the reader that George has forsaken his dream, and chosen to become the lonely farm worker he once felt empathy towards.
Over time, Charlie started to lose his knowledge and he became depressed. He then decided that he was going to move away from New York.

In The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald, one of the characters is “stuck in the past”. Throughout the novel, Gatsby is constantly longing for a past relationship he had with a woman named Daisy, who moved on from Gatsby and married another man when Gatsby left for the war. Gatsby’s view of the past is used to develop a major theme of the novel: the moral decay of society. The novel begins with Nick, the narrator saying how the events that happened in New York, where the novel takes place, caused him to leave, and how he doesn’t like any of the people he was involved with. As the novel progresses, Nick becomes friends with a man named Gatsby, who is viewed as a mysterious figure to outsiders.
The 1919 World Series players took part in a scandal mainly through the influence of manager Charles Comiskey. Charles Comiskey is the primary reason that fueled the team to throw the series away by his cheapness and overall dislike. The 1988 film Eight Men Out directed by John Sayles depicts an accurate depiction of how Charles Comiskey influenced the White Sox to throw away the series. Charles Comiskey is illustrated as an unfair manager: who paid his players the minimum, a manager who didn’t keep his promise for winning the pennant, and overall the players greatly disliked Comiskey. After the White Sox won, Eddie Cicotte was promised a $10,000 bonus from manager Charles Comiskey if he won 30 games.
What happened to Frank Romero 's "Going to the Olympics, 1984" upon the decades after the mural was finished was very tragic but I believe it was inevitable for others to tag over the mural. An image from 2009 shows the mural in a rough shape, the bottom half of the mural got completely ruined by people tagging over the mural and spraying graffiti over it as well. Romero 's response to this fiasco was interesting, he sued Caltrans "the state agency that owns L.A. 's 70 freeway murals," because of the people who painted over his mural. What the people of Los Angles thought of this is interesting as well, as Judith Baca "a mural artist and activist" stated "artists are starting to stand up and say, `Enough is enough. ' We 're in a terrible situation, losing work after work."

Money is often what is associated with greed in this world. It can blind people to the point where they disregard the situation of all others. In the play “A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry, Walter Lee wants the money that was left from his late father’s life insurance to invest in a liquor store. Everyone else in the family thinks that it’s a very bad idea. His mother, also known as Mama, is the one receiving the money, and wants it to be spent on bettering the family.

She is a tragic character, who is unable to exist in the world which surrounds her so she makes up a better world in her imagination. The world she wishes to live in. People can sympathize with Blanche because of all the tragedy in her life. Susan Henthorne writes in her essay A Streetcar Named Desire, Death and desire bring Blanche to this low point in her life. She never recovers from the devastating death of her young husband, indirectly caused by the nature of his sexual desire.
Daisy not being with the first person she loved because he didn’t have enough money then watching him leave. Tom losing his wife to someone he has no chance with. George marrying a woman who cheated on him then watching her die. Myrtle continuing on a relationship even though it wasn’t right then running in front of a car. In my opinion the American Dream does not exist it is merely a figment of our imagination, a figment of every human being to ever have thoughts imagination.
“Few Americans knew about the Hoover’s extensive charitable efforts during the Depression because they insisted on making them a private affair. And while Bert and Lou scored an “A” in the individual-good-works department, they flunked the official course altogether, failing to come up with a style of leadership or legislative agenda that was equal to the enormous task before them. The result was sad and predictable: America got sick to death of the Hoovers. In 1932 they lost the White House to a couple of radicals named Roosevelt whose ambitious ideas, so Bert and Lou believed, would ruin the country. Events would prove them wrong.” (193) Herbert Hoover and his wife Lou Henry were the Roosevelt’s predecessors and for the most part, not a
