In Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck shows readers the relationship between the races in 1930s in America. At that time, most people in countryside don’t have works. They only work for the riches----The Farmers. Also in 1930s, the poor and the rich were quite different. People in the countryside can only earn a little money. And that mean George and Lennie’s dream will never come true. It shows the relationship between the races in 1930s in America not very good. And during Great Depression time in America, the relationship between races all like this.
