The years before World War I, the economy around the world was mostly stable. Economic crises did occur, but they were never long lasting. In the interwar years there was a crisis that would last for a long time.

The economy could still go well for periods, but they did not manage to get the economy right during that period. The economic crisis is also called “the Great Depression” It was an economic downturn that hit the world.

Many believe it started when the crackdown on the New York Stock Exchange took place in 1929.

The end was rather more different from country to country, but when the Second World War started it was seen as the absolute end point. This was because many of the countries involved experienced economic growth.

Dreams and goals are very important in life. As Langton Hughes once said “Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams for when dreams go, Life is a barren field Frozen with snow.” Your goals do not need to include being the richest, smartest or best.

The most important thing is that you are in competition with you and only yourself. this quote, for me, is very relatable and relevant for that particular period of time.

Many lost hopes and their dreams. People need dreams and goals to feel like they have purpose in this life.

Another thing is that the goals you set, needs to give you a good feeling within yourself- both as you work towards reaching them and when you finally reach your goal one day.

In the end, the motivation to succeed, must be stronger than the fear of failure. As the only women in the plot, Curley´s wife was a prime example on how women were seen at that time.

She was never the nicest to be around. very often would you find her picking on those she found weaker than herself.

In the fourth chapter, you will find her insulting Lennie, Candy, Crooks and even her husband Curley by calling them cowards.

She was never afraid to speak her mind, and she often would wear bold clothing. Curly hair, a face full of makeup and shoes with feathers was something you would see her wear on a daily basis.

Curley`s wife would always be described based of her looks and not her personality. She is often described as an object or Curley’s possession.

This can be seen when Candy introduces her to Lennie and George as” Well, you look her over, mister. You see if she ain't a tart.”

The men on the ranch described Curley´s wife as “tramp” and “whore” when speaking about her.
