Raised on a ranch in northern California, Jody is well-schooled in the hard work and demands of a rancher's life. He is used to the way of horses, too; but nothing has prepared him for the special connection he will forge with Gabilan, the hot-tempered pony his father gives him. With Billy Buck, the hired hand, Jody tends and trains his horse, restlessly anticipating the moment he will sit high upon Gabilan's saddle. But when Gabilan falls ill, Jody discovers there are still lessons he must learn about the ways of nature and, particularly, the ways of man.

Release Date: 2007-06-06
Genre: Literary Criticism

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Heidelberg, 6 Literaturquellen entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This essay will take a closer look on how the events of the stories change Jody’s worldly and ethical knowledge. This will be done story by story, for Steinbeck uses a very subtle technique here: the changes that take place in Jody because of the events of one story are always clearly visible in the one that follows. Although it has to be kept in mind that the Red Pony stories are short stories that can stand alone, this technique makes the cycle of stories resemble a novel with loosely connected chapters.

First published in 1938, this volume of stories collected with the encouragement of his longtime editor Pascal Covici serves as a wonderful introduction to the work of Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck. Set in the beautiful Salinas Valley of California, where simple people farm the land and struggle to find a place for themselves in the world, these stories reflect Steinbecks characteristic interests: the tensions between town and country, laborers and owners, past and present.
