Of Mice And Men Persuasive Essay I strongly believe that Of Mice and Men should not be banned from public libraries. After creating a survey on the freshman class, I am not the only one who thinks this book shouldn’t be banned. About seventy-five percent of the class wants to keep this book on the shelves. One reason why students want to keep this book is because of its interesting plot. This book was about two migrant workers, one being abnormal, who work at a ranch so that they could fulfill their dream to own their land.
At the end, the abnormal one dies because of his many accidents killing people. There are some bad characters in this book that are cruel and treat others with no respect. In every book or movie there are always bad guys. Without the bad guys it wouldn’t make any movie or book interesting. I think that the people that would want any book to be banned are being selfish and spoiled. Just because they don’t like it doesn’t mean they have to ban it from everyone else. In Ray Bradbury’s book Fahrenheit 451 he sees the future where books were going to be destroyed for many reasons.
One of them being ” Colored people don’t like Little Black Sambo. Burn it. White people don’t feel good about Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Burn it.” Banning Of Mice and Men because it doesn’t please to all audiences doesn’t mean it should be off the shelves. Everyone has their own opinion on different things.
Obviously, some people did like this book because it was published. A book doesn’t get published unless people like it. For that reason, people thought this book was entertaining. It is impossible to write a book that everyone likes. Having this book banned by the school board is a wrong idea.
I think that people should be able to read whatever they would like to read. If people don’t like the book they should just ignore it, instead of ban them, because other people might like it. This is one of my favorite books and I would really be upset if I wouldn’t be able to read it again. English Essays.
