Of Mice and Men "Of Mice and Men", by John Steinbeck, is composed of four major themes. These themes are the value of dreams and goals, moral responsibility, social injustice, and the bond of friendship and loyalty. The value of dreams and goals are that they provide hope and the desire to keep going in life, rather than laying down to die. When Lennie is feeling depressed in the woods he asks George to tell him about the "dream farm" again. This is the farm that Geore and Lennie hope to own someday. Even though this dream seems almost impossible at the time it still generates enough hope to keep Lennie and George going. When George starts talking bout it Lennie gets all excited and happy and so does George. Another example of the power of dreams is when Candy over hears George and Lennie's "dream farm" and becomes a part of the dream. Candy goes from a depressed sad additude to a cheerful excited one. He now has hope of doing something and it came from the "dream farm".

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
