Abstract:

The Good Earth, written by Pearl S. Buck, is a historical fiction novel that was published on March 2, 1931. A year later it won the Pulitzer Prize for the Novel. The Good Earth sold well and resulted in Pearl S. Buck writing two more novels in the same trilogy, Sons (1932) and A House Divided (1935). The novel is about a Chinese family who lives in a village on the cusp of World War I. It tells the poignant tale of a Chinese farmer and his family in old agrarian China. Wang Lang, a simple peasant farmer, takes as a wife a battered slave girl who becomes an indomitable, loyal woman. Working the land together, they prosper and increase their holdings, yet Wang eventually betrays his family and neglects the earth he had worshipped.
