Abstract:

The saga of three generations of the Trask and Hamilton families in the early 1900's in Northern California.

East of Eden is a work in which Steinbeck created his most mesmerizing characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of identity, the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence. Adapted for the 1955 film directed by Elia Kazan introducing James Dean and read by thousands as the book that brought Oprahʹs Book Club back, East of Eden has remained vitally present in American culture for over half a century.
