John Steinbeck – The Grapes of Wrath
Publisher: Penguin Classics; Reissue edition (March 28, 2006) | ISBN-10: 0143039431 | EPUB MOBI | 464 pages | 1.9 mb
Novel by John Steinbeck, published in 1939. Set during the Great Depression, it traces the migration of an Oklahoma Dust Bowl family to California and their subsequent hardships as migrant farm workers. It won a Pulitzer Prize in 1940. The work did much to publicize the injustices of migrant labor. The narrative, interrupted by prose-poem interludes, chronicles the struggles of the Joad family’s life on a failing Oklahoma farm, their difficult journey to California, and their disillusionment once they arrive there and fall prey to a parasitic economic system. The insularity of the JoadsMa’s obsession with family togetherness, son Tom’s self-centeredness, and daughter Rose of Sharon’s materialismultimately gives way to a sense of universal community.
