The 20th Century American Dream

The American dream by the 20th century is formatted in many different forms fully dependent on the person you choose to look at.  There was a slight recurring theme of disappointment, from the depression to the war.  I think many Americans at this time may have valued a smaller life where they were content, happy, and peaceful.  I believe that was the American dream.  Literature also created this small-town dream by displaying lives full of content from poetry to novels.  This time period was full of such a wide variety of dreams from freedoms, to wealth, to peace, to every dream you could think of.

  1. I agree that the American dream could have many different perspectives dependent on the person you are looking at by the 20th century.
