Tom Joad, paroled convict, returns to his family farm in Oklahoma, only to learn the Joads have been "tractored off the land" and are joining the desperate migration to California. The grand Westward movement of American settlement finds small shareholders forced off their land by bankers and big landholders. "The Grapes of Wrath" expresses the nation's rage about the Depression in poetic, Biblical terms, and shows half a nation with the economic rug pulled out from under it. The story--about the resiliency and courage of "the people"--Is built on a foundation of fear: Fear of losing jobs, land, and self-respect. To those who have felt that fear, have gone hungry or been homeless, it will never become dated, while today its sense of injustice is perhaps even more relevant+-+2140309125261625ocn001366206book19750.25Steinbeck, JohnSteinbeck : a life in lettersRecords and correspondenceA hefty selection from the Nobel Prize-winner's voluminous correspondence offers an intimate view of Steinbeck learning and practicing his craft+-+6337955965238911ocn030623994book19940.24Parini, JayJohn Steinbeck : a biographyBiographyIncludes information on The Grapes of Wrath (film), Of Mice and Men (film), Of Mice and Men (novella), Of Mice and Men (play), The Red Pony (film), etc+-+1749209895324200015ocn000046519book19690.28Steinbeck, JohnJournal of a novel; the East of Eden lettersDiariesRecords and correspondence"Each working day from January 29 to November 1, 1951, John Steinbeck warmed up to the work of writing East of Eden with a letter to the late Pascal Covici, his friend and editor at The Viking Press. It was his way, he said, of 'getting my mental arm in shape to pitch a good game.' Steinbeck's letters were written on the left-hand pages of a notebook in which the facing pages would be filled with the text of East of Eden. They touched on many subjects--story arguments, trial flights of workmanship, concern for his sons. Part autobiography, part writer's workshop, these letters offer an illuminating perspective on Steinbeck's creative process, and a fascinating glimpse of Steinbeck, the private man."--Book description, Amazon.com+-+336996596519687ocn191926326book20080.27Wartzman, RickObscene in the extreme : the burning and banning of John Steinbeck's The grapes of wrathHistory"Few books have caused as big a stir as John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, when it was published in April 1939. By May, it was the nation's number one bestseller, but in Kern County, California--the Joads' newfound home--the book was burned publicly and banned from library shelves. Obscene in the Extreme tells the remarkable story behind this fit of censorship. When W.B. "Bill" Camp, a giant cotton and potato grower, presided over its burning in downtown Bakersfield, he declared: "We are angry, not because we were attacked but because we were attacked by a book obscene in the extreme sense of the word." But Gretchen Knief, the Kern County librarian, bravely fought back. "If that book is banned today, what book will be banned tomorrow?" Obscene in the Extreme serves as a window into an extraordinary time of upheaval in America--a time when, as Steinbeck put it, there seemed to be "a revolution ... going on.'"--Publisher's description+-+068839130619351ocn000269680book19520.28Wagenknecht, EdwardCavalcade of the American novel, from the birth of the Nation to the middle of the twentieth centuryCriticism, interpretation, etcStarting with Brockden Brown and continuing through such well-known novelists as Cooper, Hawthorne, Melville, and Twain, the author concludes with Wharton, Glasgow, Dreiser, Cather, Lewis, Hemingway, and others who achieved success in the 1920's and 30's19224ocn000248777book19690.27Davis, Robert MurraySteinbeck : a collection of critical essaysCriticism, interpretation, etcA collection of critical essays dealing with the author's major novels and themes18937ocn367593059com20060.27Shillinglaw, SusanA journey into Steinbeck's CaliforniaBiographyThis part art book, part biography, and part travel guide offers insight into how landscapes and townscapes influenced John Steinbeck's creative process and how, in turn, his legacy has influenced modern California.

He had intended to celebrate the "durability of democracy" with this fablelike tale, in which a small, peace-loving country, rather like Norway, is demoralized after being invaded by a powerful fascist state, rather like Nazi Germany, but recovers from the shock of defeat to form a promising resistance movement. - Introduction16906ocn018291033book19890.27Steinbeck, JohnWorking days : the journals of the Grapes of wrath, 1938-1941DiariesNotebooks, sketchbooks, etcThe novelist records his thoughts, feelings, and experiences during the writing of The grapes of wrath, in this diary of those years+-+420996596516196ocn001121272book19740.29Levant, HowardThe novels of John Steinbeck : a critical studyCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+9979571735159310ocn008806095book19830.25Benson, Jackson JThe true adventures of John Steinbeck, writer : a biographyBiographyReveals the dimensions of the man and the events of his life as he pursued his artistic vocation+-+K26996596515561ocn000449993book19690.32Blake, Nelson ManfredNovelists' America; fiction as history, 1910-1940Criticism, interpretation, etcThe author, a historian, looks at history from the angle of vision of eight American novelists: Sinclair Lewis, F.
