    So Steinbeck wanted to show the futility of the American dream and how it wasn't realistically achievable in a society where racism, sexism and loneliness were so prevalent. That more helpful?

    I think his aim was to show how society treated people in the 1930's particularly the treatment of the vulnerable (Lennie), old/disabled (Candy), women (Curley's wife) and black people (Crooks). I also thought when looking over my notes that Steinbeck saw himself in Slim. Slim is the only character in the book to have respect for Crooks, Curley's wife e.t.c and I think Steinbeck was trying to show that that was his attitude towards prejudices in society as well.
