John Ernst Steinbeck 1963John Ernst Steinbeck
(1902-1968)

John Ernst Steinbeck was born in Salinas, California on February 27, 1902. Steinbeck attended Stanford University and worked odd jobs as a ranch hand and fruit picker. Originally enrolled in school as an English major, he changed to independant study and left Stanford in 1925. He wrote his first book in 1929, "Cup of Gold", romantisizing the life of the Welsh Pirate Henry Morgan. He is more well known for his books during the Great Depression. Steinbeck wrote of people caught in an uncaring world who, in defeat, remain heroic and sympathetic. Steinbeck was committed to social progress, he used his writing to raise issues of labor exploitation and the plight of the common man. John Steinbeck's writings, along with Woody Guthrie's folk music, became both symbolic and part of the "Dust Bowl" era mythology of the American mid west. Steinbecks most famous novel, "Grapes of Wrath", won him a Pulitzer Prize in 1940 and was later made into a movie of the same name. In 1962, John Steinbeck won the Nobel Prize for Literature "for his realistic and imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humour and keen social perception."

Steinbeck's work was belittled by academics as too sentimental to be "high art", that he simply was not a good writer. Harold Bloom did not include any of Steinbeck's works in the Western Literary Canon, saying that John Ford's movie "The Grapes of Wrath" was better than the book. "You can't read three paragraphs of Steinbeck without thinking of a poorer Hemingway, with characterizations that are contrived" Bloom noted. As for Steinbeck's Nobel Prize, "The People in Stockholm seem to have a dusty file on people no one ever heard of that they pull out when making the awards". Martin Arnold wrote in the New York Times "Steinbeck's sentimentallity ...although criticized, made him popular." Professor Laura Browder, director of creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University says "Steinbeck works on lots of levels...he is accessible in dramatizing social issues and wasn't afraid to use sentimental devices the way Stowe did in "Uncle Tom's Cabin"".

In any case, Steinbeck's novels remain in print today and perhaps raise different controversies than when they were first published.

John Steinbeck

The Pearl -John Steinbeck - - Great product! "Steinbeck is an artists; and he tells the stories of these lovable thieves and adulterers with a gentle and poetic purity of heart and of prose." —New York Herald Tribune

Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, John Steinbeck created a “Camelot” on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights. At the center of the tale is Danny, whose house, like Arthur’s castle, becomes a gathering place for men looking for adventure, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging—men who fiercely resist the corrupting tide of honest toil and civil rectitude.
 
As Nobel Prize winner Steinbeck chronicles their deeds—their multiple lovers, their wonderful brawls, their Rabelaisian wine-drinking—he spins a tale as compelling and ultimately as touched by sorrow as the famous legends of the Round Table, which inspired him. This edition features an introduction by Thomas Fensch.
