Question description

·  American Dream Overview

We have studied American Culture's various vestiges during the last several Weeks. Another way to think about American culture is to consider the American Dream. For the next two weeks, we will study the themes of the American Dream in a few select American films. 

[The American Dream is] that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement. It is a difficult dream for the European upper classes to interpret adequately, and too many of us ourselves have grown weary and mistrustful of it. It is not a dream of motor cars and high wages merely, but a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable, and be recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position.[ The Epic of America, 1931]  ( Source: Penn State Erie; The Bernard College).
