Summary: Discusses the John Steinbeck novel, Of Mice and Men. Describes the common dreams that many of the characters share.
Many people have dreams. Most people try to accomplish their dreams. In the novel, Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck tells about the dreams that the characters have.

First, Curley's wife had a rather interesting dream. She wanted to be in movies and on. She had a chance to be on T.V. Her mom wouldn't let her do it. She also wants to be friends with everyone. No one wants to be her friend. Being on T.V. and having people like her was two of Curley's wife dream.

Second, Lennie had a couple of dreams. He wanted to own a small piece of land with animals and George. Many people now want to own either a small or large piece of land. There buying land to build more houses. Lennie wanted to take care of the animals. "An' I'd go and getta sack and take it to the alfalfa and get it all fulla alfalfa and give it to the rabbits." There are some people that would like to have animals to care for. Many people that have a lot of animals are the people that have most likely lost a loved one. Owning a small piece of land was one of Lennie's dreams.

Lastly, George had a similar dream as Lennie did. George wanted a small piece of land so him and Lennie wouldn't have to work. People now are buying up all the land to either build more houses or to see who can get the most land. People that keep buying all the land are destroying all of the wildlife and the homes of the animals that live in the area. Owning a piece of land so they wouldn't have to work was one of George's dreams.

To conclude, these are some of the characters and their dreams in the novel Of Mice and Men. These are also some of the reasons as to why I think that dreams were an important theme.
