Of Mice and Men

High hopes and dreams for a better future can make a miserable today more tolerable.

A theme is an underlying message in a story. A novel's themes are often revealed by what the characters say and think and by what happens in the story. Give two examples from the novel that support each one.

George, Lennie, Crooks and Candy are all lonely men. Their dream of having something of their own and working for themselves keeps them going.

Another example would be Curly's wife dreaming of the movies. She sees that dream as something she might attain, and it makes the loneliness of her marriage a bit easier to cope with.
