Sirinya Pakditawan: Biblical Symbolism in John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath" GRIN Verlag GmbH,Nov 2014 ISBN: 9783656841203
Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,2, , language: English, abstract: In 1938 John Steinbeck began writing The Grapes of Wrath, a novel which was to gain him his greatest acclaim. This novel is set in the time of the Great Depression and of the Dust Bowl in America. In The Grapes of Wrath Steinbeck tries to expose the hardships and plights of the people dispossessed from their lands during that time. People like the Joads from Oklahoma that were to become exploited migrant workers in California, a place which they thought the Promised Land. Hence, Steinbeck gained the reputation of being a proletarian writer because he sides with the common worker. Thus, The Grapes of Wrath also belongs to Steinbeck s Labor Trilogy. What is more, his novel was sharply criticized and very much discussed at the time of its publication: It was publicly banned and burned by citizens, it was debated on national radio hook-ups; but above all, it was read . In spite of all this critique, in 1940 Steinbeck was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for this novel and in 1962 he also won the Noble Prize for Literature. Hence, the Grapes of Wrath must be more than simply a piece of propagandistic writing. In point of fact, Steinbeck patterned the book on far more universal themes, both the biblical story of Exodus, and also humanity s capacity for survival ( ) in the face of ( ) calamity . It is very interesting that Steinbeck uses biblical parallels in his story. Thus, he alludes to the Old Testament, the Israelites and the Exodus as well as to Christ and the New Testament. In other words, one might also say that Steinbeck takes the reader through the development of the Bible in order to reveal the migrants developing humanity and religion. This is already suggested by the title of this novel for it is taken from The Battle Hymn of the Republic by Julia Ward Howe. The fact that Steinbeck s great American novel seems to rely firmly on a biblical consciousness is suggested in this context because the lyrics of the Battle Hymn also refer to the biblical passage Revelation. This passage appeals to deliverance in the final judgement. Hence, as far as the novel is concerned, it is suggested that there will also be deliverance of the workers after managing all their hardships and developing compassion and humanity.

Geert Mak: In America, Random House UK Ltd,20141106 ISBN: 9781846557033
In 1960 John Steinbeck and his dog Charley set out in their green GMC pickup truck to rediscover the soul of America, visiting small towns and cities from New York to New Orleans. The truck was named Rocinante after Don Quixote s horse, and Steinbeck was Cervantes foolhardy knight. America was looking to the future, full of optimism and desperate to leave behind the troubles of past; Steinbeck, great chronicler of the ordinary working man, was starting to feel out of touch. As he said to a friend: I must see how the country looks and smells and sounds. The trip became Travels With Charley , one of his best-loved books. Half a century on, Geert Mak sets off from Steinbeck s home in his own Rocinante, with his wife and his sat-nav Sandy. Mile after mile, as he retraces Steinbeck s footsteps through the potato fields of Maine to the endless prairies of the Midwest, sits down to eat with farmers, workers, fisherman and teachers, stumbles across glistening suburbs and boarded-up stores, he searches for the roots of America and what remains of the restless, prosperous world Steinbeck describes. Part biography, part cultural history, In America asks how America has changed in the last 50 years; what s happened to Main Street, USA, and the American dream; and what do we, Europe and America, still have in common in the twenty-first century
