John Steinbeck wrote The Grapes of Wrath during an astonishing burst of activity between June and October of 1938. Throughout the time he was creating his greatest work, Steinbeck faithfully kept a journal revealing his arduous journey toward its completion. The journal, like the novel it chronicles, tells a tale of dramatic proportions—of dogged determination and inspiration, yet also of paranoia, self-doubt, and obstacles. It records in intimate detail the conception and genesis of The Grapes of Wrath and its huge though controversial success. It is a unique and penetrating portrait of an emblematic American writer creating an essential American masterpiece.

The Grapes of Wrath

Author: John Steinbeck

Genre: Fiction

The Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression, a book that galvanized—and sometimes outraged—millions of readers. First published in 1939, Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads—driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into Haves and Have-Nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity. A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America. At once a naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s powerful landmark novel is perhaps the most American of American Classics. This Centennial edition, specially designed to commemorate one hundred years of Steinbeck, features french flaps and deckle-edged pages. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Universitat Konstanz, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Jemanden zurechtstutzen, aus jemandem Kleinholz machen, die treibende Kraft von jemandem/ etwas sein, nicht ganz dicht sein, eine Schraube locker haben... diese Liste wurde sich mit Sicherheit beliebig fortsetzen lassen. Unsere Alltagssprache ist, ohne, dass es uns haufig bewusst ware, mitunter metaphorisch aufgeladen. Die soeben erwahnten bildlichen Umschreibungen sind jedoch nur ein kleiner Teil einer fur diese Seminararbeit signifikanten Spezie: der Maschinenmetapher. In der hier vorliegenden Seminararbeit wird zunachst der Begriff der Metapher im Allgemeinen kurz umrissen, im Anschluss folgt eine (verwaltungswissenschaftlich angehauchte) Untersuchung uber die Maschine als Organisationsform und deren Ursprung. Auf diesen Erkenntnissen aufbauend beschaftige ich mich mit John Steinbecks Roman The Grapes of Wrath aus dem Jahre 1939, einem als naturalistisch kategorisierten Roman, der das tragische Schicksal der Farmer aus Oklahoma und anderen Staaten der USA vorrangig anhand der Erlebnisse der Familie Joad darstellt. Mein Schwerpunkt liegt hierbei auf dem funften Kapitel des Werkes, das sich der Institution Bank als monstrose Maschine widmet. Inwiefern wird die Bank als eine Maschine betrachtet? Aber auch auf die Rolle der Landbesitzer, des Traktors und des Traktorfahrers wird naher eingegangen. Ziel der Seminararbeit ist es, die Bedeutung dieser Metapher im Roman anhand der soeben erwahnten Schwerpunkte aufzuzeigen."

On Reading The Grapes of Wrath

Genre: Literary Criticism

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."

Lesson Plan the Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

Lesson Plan from the year 2010 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, University of Marburg (Anglistik), course: Second Language Acquisition, language: English, abstract: 1. General Overview The Hessian Curriculum(1) demands that the English lesson in the Oberstufe has to improve the pupils' language skills as well as enlarge their knowledge about English literature and different cultures. Correspondingly, the pupils should gain experiences with a variety of texts and different media. By this, they develop critical media literacy which is an essential prerequisite for working independently. Ideally, these main objectives should be combined in every teaching unit. The novel The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck was published in 1939. It reports the story of the farmer family Joad which has, like hundred thousands of other families, to leave their home Oklahoma to start a new life in California. By this, Steinbeck exemplifies the fate of migrant workers in the USA during the 1930's. The novel should be motivating for the pupils as it constitutes an authentic documentation of the social circumstances during the time of the Great Depression.(2) Furthermore, the dramatic story of the family Joad is gripping and arouses empathy. The novel, moreover, refers to central topics, like work ethnic and inequality, which can be connected to the current problems of globalization. In The Grapes of Wrath Steinbeck makes use of the migrants' authentic language. That is why the reading might be a challenge for the pupils. Besides, Steinbeck's literary techniques are note-worthy. He, for instance, adds so-called intercalary chapters, which evaluate the plot and provide further information on the historical context. Moreover, the controversy(3) of the novel led to various reactions of artists and film adaptations. So the novel is an appropriate starting point for the comparison of different media, like for instance songs, photographs and film adaptations. Corresponding

Genre: Literary Criticism

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. Through reviews, previously published essays, and original material, this volume records the critical reception of The Grapes of Wrath up to the recent editions of the 1990s. The volume additionally includes a chronology, bibliography, and extensive introductory essay.
