Steinbeck and the environment interdisciplinary approaches by Susan F Beegel( Computer File )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 1,479 libraries worldwide
John Steinbeck, intellectual soulmate of pioneering ecologist Edward F. Ricketts, developed a literary vision unique for its biological holism. From his exploration of the environmental disaster in the Dust Bowl region described in The Grapes of Wrath to his voyage of scientific and spiritual discovery among near-pristine marine ecosystems recounted in Log from the Sea of Cortez, Steinbeck's entire canon probes the multiple and interlocked dimensions of his outstanding theme - that human beings and their environment are an inseparable unit. Written by scholars from various disciplines - marine biology, the social and physical sciences, environmental studies, feminist theory, history, and philosophy, as well as American literature - these essays offer a dynamic contribution to the study of Steinbeck by considering his writings from an environmental perspective. And although these writers come from different backgrounds, they find a common theme - Steinbeck blended his literary vision with a unique understanding and appreciation of the environment

Now, in celebration of the centennial of his birth, this original collection brings together for the first time more than fifty of Steinbeck's finest essays and journalistic pieces, from his 1936 series of newspaper articles."--BOOK JACKET

The winter of our discontent by John Steinbeck( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 527 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: From a swashbuckling pirate fantasy to a meditation on American morality-two classic Steinbeck novels make their black spine debuts. In awarding John Steinbeck the 1962 Nobel Prize in Literature, the Nobel committee stated that with The Winter of Our Discontent, he had "resumed his position as an independent expounder of the truth, with an unbiased instinct for what is genuinely American." Ethan Allen Hawley, the protagonist of the novel, works as a clerk in a grocery store that his family once owned. With the decline in their status, his wife is restless, and his teenage children are hungry for the tantalizing material comforts he cannot provide. Then one day, in a moment of moral crisis, Ethan decides to take a holiday from his own scrupulous standards

On Reading the Grapes of Wrath by Susan Shillinglaw( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
"Today's foremost Steinbeck scholar writes an extended meditation on the influence of The Grapes of Wrath, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of its first publication In this compelling biography of a book, Susan Shillinglaw delves into John Steinbeck's classic to explore the cultural, social, political, scientific, and creative impact of The Grapes of Wrath upon first publication, as well as its enduring legacy. First published in April 1939, Steinbeck's National Book Award-winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. The story of their struggle remains eerily relevant in today's America and stands as a portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, "in the souls of the people.""--
