The Grapes of Wrath is generally considered Steinbeck s masterpiece, but the short novel was the form he most frequently turned to and most consciously theorized about, and with constant experimentation he made the form his own. Much of the best and the worst of his writing appears in his short novels. This collection reviews what has been categorized as the good and the bad, looking beyond the careless labeling that has characterized a great deal of the commentary on Steinbeck s writing to the true strengths and weaknesses of the works.
The 1930s exodus of Okies dispossessed by repeated droughts and failed crop prices was a relatively brief interlude in the history of migrant agricultural labor. Yet it attracted wide attention through the publication of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath (1939) and the images of Farm Security Administration photographers such as Dorothea Lange and Arthur Rothstein.
The Grapes of Wrath is the brilliantly written story depicting the life of Americans during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s when Oklahoma farmers were forced off the land they had farmed for generations and they moved to California for the better life they believed they would find picking peaches and grapes. The Grapes of Wrath was written in 1939 by John Steinbeck (1902-1968).
Traditionally, the critical reputation of Nobel Prize-winning American novelist John Steinbeck (1902-1968) has rested on his achievements of the 1930s, especially In Dubious Battle (1936), Of Mice and Men (1937), The Long Valley (1938), and, of course, The Grapes of Wrath (1939), one of the most powerful - and arguably one of the greatest - American novels of this century.

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.
Best known as a novelist - especially for The Grapes of Wrath, his heartfelt portrayal of disenfranchised dustbowl farmers in the 1930s - John Steinbeck nonetheless devoted a good portion of his literary energies to nonfiction. In this study, Warren French looks at the entire body of Steinbeck's nonfiction writing - journalism, essays, travelogues - both in its own right and in its capacity to illuminate the progress, and decline, of Steinbeck's entire writing career.
When it was initially published in 1939, John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath instantly became a bestseller. Like many phenomenally popular works, it has elicited a wide range of critical responses. Some critics have attacked Steinbeck for his alleged sentimentalism, while others have praised him for writing a great American epic. While modern critics have generally responded positively toward his novel, they have done so at a time when its place in the American literary canon is increasingly uncertain.
The California farmlands have long served as a popular symbol of America s natural abundance and endless opportunity. Yet, from John Steinbeck sThe Grapes of Wrath and Carlos Bulosan s America Is in the Heart to Helena Maria Viramontes sUnder the Feet of Jesus, many novels, plays, movies, and songs have dramatized the brutality and hardships of working in the California fields.
