Abstract:

The Moon is Down chronicles the experiences of fascistic invaders - a thinly veiled reference to Nazis - who have occupied a small coal mining town in Northern Europe. The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck is a relatively unknown piece of literature that was widely circulated by political activists and rebels during many occupations; examples include Nazi-occupied France as well as the Soviet Union amongst a slew of other European nations. The novella is short in stature at a slight 115 pages in the 1973 Bantam edition and encompasses many themes, such as the relationship between oppressors and the oppressed, the depth and demands of the military-industrial complex, and the iron will of the human spirit against slavery and repression.
