6 Sample Sophomore Body Paragraph
In order to understand the relevance of the loneliness and the American Dream it is necessary to define its purpose. In her book Understanding of Mice and Men The Red Pony and the Pearl Claudia Durst Johnson defines the American Dream as transformed to mean a carefree life of plenty and laughter (139). Johnson later affirms that the dream encompasses independence and self-sufficiency the freedom that comes from owning land which in turn means enjoying the fruits of ones own labor (140). This conception of the American Dream is what brings hope to the characters in Of Mice and Men. People during those times tried to escape homelessness economic poverty and emotional and psychological corruption (Of Mice). They were accustomed to a lifestyle where isolation was common they were also forced to rely on themselves and were surprise by the kinship of others (Telgen). In Of Mice and Men the dream both motivates characters to seek a better life but also serves to isolate them when they cannot achieve it.
