The Dreams of Mice and Men

“No matter how hard you try, you may never achieve your dreams.” This shows that in the book, dreams don’t tend to come true. In the book, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, George and Lennie, two men, are on a quest to try and achieve their dreams. George and Lennie work on a ranch where they meet others with dreams. However, all the characters soon face the reality that their dreams are never going to come true.
Crook’s dream to be accepted is ruined as people view him differently because of his skin color.Crooks’ dream is to be accepted, to fit in and to not be lonely. One example of Crooks’ dream is when Crooks was talking to George and he said, “A guy needs somebody- to be near him. A guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody” (69). This proves his dream because he says that a guy goes nuts if he doesn’t have anyone. When Crooks refers to “a guy” he really is referring to himself.He is saying that he is lonely and he doesn’t like it. That means that his dream is to not be lonely. It also means that he wants to fit in and be accepted because the reason he’s lonely is because he is black.So in order to achieve his dream, he can’t be black. However, Crooks dream is ruined because he is black and he can’t change that. For example, when Crooks is talking to Lennie he says, “S’pose you couldn’t go into the bunk house and play rummy cause you was black” (69). This proves that his dream can’t come true because he is discriminated against because of his skin color and he is unable to achieve his dream because of this. Because the others won’t let him play cards with them, he is unable to fit in and be accepted. In order to fit in, you need to be able to do the same things that others do, like play cards, however he is unable to do that because others won’t give him the chance to fit in.Crooks’ dream is to be accepted, to fit in and to not be lonely; however, that can’t come true because he is black.
