George was definitely dreaming because he wasnt going to leave Lennie alone and please his own will, he tells Lennie what he feelsAn when the end of the month came I would take my litre bucks and go to a.cat house(Steinbeck 145 2000 Ed)George was not allowed to leave Lennie, runaway and get money, it is impossible because George promised Aunt Clara and he would feel guilty to leave Lennie who doesnt issue how to handle things. George was in a very ha rd position.Lennie didnt have much of a family except George who scolds Lennie all the time.

IT was Georges job to look after Lennie so they had to stick together.Lennie teentsy has dreams like us. George thinks of having a dream garden and keeps on telling Lennie about it because Lennie wants to tend the rabbits so he keeps on wanting to hear about the garden.

Since Crooks has no one with him he always sits up at night getting bored and not doing anything just thinking ok companionship, equality, how lonely he is, what and outcast he is and how racist others are towards him. Since he is an afro- American man and the others are white. He then expresses his feelingsA guy sets alone out here at night, maybe readin books or thinkin or stuff like that.(Steinbeck 105 2000 ed)Since Crooks is so lonely he is really sad because he finds it very hard to make friends and act the same as the others. Croo ks is now having a rough time.Crooks is dreaming of perceiveing hundreds of men walking o the ranches because there arent many people on the ranches anyway because no one likes the ranches. Since Crooks is always dreaming he imagines many things, so he dreams that he seesI see hundreds of men bye on the road an on the ranches with their bindles on their back.(Steinbeck 106 2000 Ed)I think Crooks has an imaginative mind because he is severly lonely because of his skin colour and locomote and what others think of him.Candy is one of the ranchers who is lonely too and like George and Lennie doesnt have any relatives with him. Even Candy doesnt have many friends. Candy is also old so he thinks that one that he will die and leave his belongings with Lennie and George since Candy doesnt have anyone else. Candy tells Lennie and GeorgeId make a will an leave my office to you guyz in case I kick off, cause I aint got no relatives nor nothing.(Steinbeck 71 2000ed)Candy really wants to go a way since he doesnt have anybody with him. So he always thinks how unlucky he is and how deprived he is of his family.Since Candy doesnt have much company in the bunk house he hears Lennie and George talking about their imaginative ranch which Candy finds very nice and would like to live on a ranch like they want to. So Candy is prepared to do something in the ranch and share some property so he adds in sayingSpose I went in with you guys. Thas three hundred am fifty bucksId put in. I aint much good, but I could tend the chickens.(Steinbeck 87 2000 Ed)Candy was so upset about his life so he really dreams of doing things but cant because it is too difficult for him, but would like to do something with others.Curleys wife is in a really bad shape since she has a horrible husband and no one likes her because of the way she acts and dresses, for e.g. she flirts with the ranchers, wears bright red lipstick and nail pull down and so everyone wants to keep their distance from her. She onl y has a poor old dog to give her company since her husband is so mean to her so she complains wherefore cant I talk to you? I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely.(Steinbeck 122 2000ed)She is really upset with her life and is miserably lonely. She is one of the rejects, because of who she is.
