Steinbeck is an artist and he tells the stories of these lovable thieves and adulterers with a gentle and poetic purity of heart and of prose New York Herald Tribune br br Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend Steinbeck created a Camelot on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey California and peopled it with a colorful band of knights At the center of the tale is Danny whose house like Arthur s castle becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure camaraderie and a sense of belonging These knights are i paisanos i men of mixed heritage whose ancestors settled California hundreds of years before Free of ties to jobs and other complications of the American way of life they fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil in the surrounding ocean of civil rectitude br br As Steinbeck chronicles their deeds their multiple loves their wonderful brawls their Rabelaisian wine drinking he spins a tale as compelling and ultimately as touched by sorrow as the famous legends of the Round Table which inspired him, Like his father and grandfather before him Kino is a poor diver gathering pearls from the gulf beds that once brought great wealth to the kings of Spain and now provide Kino Juana and their infant son with meager subsistence Then on a day like any other Kino emerges from the sea with a pearl as large as a sea gull s egg as perfect as the moon With the pearl comes hope the promise of comfort and of security br br A story of classic simplicity based on a Mexican folk tale i The Pearl i explores the secrets of man s nature greed the darkest depths of evil and the luminous possibilities of love, Ethan Allen Hawley the protagonist of Steinbeck s last novel works as a clerk in a grocery store that his family once owned With Ethan no longer a member of Long Island s aristocratic class his wife is restless and his teenage children are hungry for the tantalizing material comforts he cannot provide Then one day in a moment of moral crisis Ethan decides to take a holiday from his own scrupulous standards br br Set in Steinbeck s contemporary America the novel explores the tenuous line between private and public honesty that today ranks it alongside his most acclaimed works of penetrating insight into the American condition This edition features an introduction and notes by Steinbeck scholar Susan Shillinglaw, First published in Steinbeck s Pulitzer Prize winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family the Joads driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into haves and have nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision elemental yet plainspoken tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity br br A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless of one man s fierce reaction to injustice and of one woman s stoical strength the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes the very nature of equality and justice in America br br Sensitive to fascist and communist criticism Steinbeck insisted that The Battle Hymn of the Republic be printed in its entirety in the first edition of the book which takes its title from the first verse He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored As Don DeLillo has claimed Steinbeck shaped a geography of conscience with this novel where there is something at stake in every sentence Beyond that for emotional urgency evocative power sustained impact prophetic reach and continued controversy i The Grapes of Wrath i is perhaps the most American of American classics
