John Steinbeck packed his novel with a lot of emotions and backgrounds of people with different stories, lives and attitudes. The book narrates the reader a touching story of a friendship between two men during one of the most difficult times in the United States history – the time of the Great Depression in 1930s. Conjoined with the common dream to open their own farm, friends arrive to their new work place and start building up relationships with other workers.
“Of Mice and Men” is a practical and emotional illustration of America’s working class dreams and hopes and shocking reality and tragedy of people’s lives. Steinbeck creates a story based on the contrast between its main characters: physically strong and “simple” Lenny and more rational and proactive George, who supports and completes his friend and their joint “picture” in front of other workers at the farm. The book starts with the cross-country journey of friends in search of job, symbolical beginning that reflects the search for truth and justice in the Great Depression America.
I’m definitely sure that everyone at least once in his or her life thought: “If I could go back in time, I would…”. All of us have something in our past that we want to change: some people regret about mistakes they’ve done, others about things they wanted to do, but didn’t resolve to. Human beings regret about words they said, about hasty actions and conclusions, about lack of courage or persistence, etc.
Personally I regret that I’ve quarreled with a loyal friend of mine nearly half a year ago and we still do not communicate. Sometimes I feel that I need her, I need this person, who always listened to my endless stories, who could understand me even without words and who was always eager to lend me a hand, but I still do not have enough courage to call her… If I could go back in time, I would behave in another way and we still would be the best friends.
I’m definitely sure that almost all of us at least once in life have seen something weird, extraordinary and odd, and something that doesn’t have any logical sense or explanation. Some people met ghosts, others saw the UFO and different unusual creatures. There still exist many weird things in our lives.
Frankly speaking, I can hardly say that I have a vast experience in weird things that cannot be explained. Still, I remember one episode. It happened several years ago. I collected plush bears and my aunt presented me a collection of nine new ones for my birthday. It was a collection of a big bear family including bear-parents, bear-grandparents and many bear-children. I fell for my new collection at once, which is why I put them all at the foreground of the shelf in my room.
We, human beings, are such creatures who always dream about things that are very difficult to obtain, sometimes even not possible at all. Personally I prefer to dream only about real things, which I can achieve in certain period of time. There is only one unreal thing I regret about from time to time. Sometimes I wish I had a sister or a brother!
In my childhood I was the only one among my friends who didn’t have brothers or sisters. My best friend was lucky to have a twin-sister and two younger brothers. I always liked to visit their place: it was always filled with a special atmosphere of a large family. Their evenings were almost always the same, but I can hardly say that they were monotonous or boring. All the time my friend and her sister welcomed me to their house, their mother was cooking something delicious, making my mouth watered, the boys all the time ran around the house, playing their noisy games, and their father was always working in his study.
