When I was in secondary school, John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men” had been a book I read most frequently, it was a story about two guys working temporarily in a farm and some tragic affairs ensured.

Throughout the time I had seen and read the stories for god knows how many times, I did not cry for one of the character’s death. Yet I was able to feel the bleakness within Steinbeck’s work, as if there is no way to go no way to improve. As if the effort characters tried to achieve was nothing, nothing would change their situations and all they could do was to depressed their way to death.
