9780140042399: The Grapes of Wrath

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). In 1940 it was made into a movie staring Henry Fonda. The title comes from a line in the song "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". The book is still controversial and efforts are still made to ban it from school libraries. The movie has not been remade, probably for the same reason.

Product Description:

Shocking and controversial when it was first published in 1939, Steinbeck's Pulitzer Prize-winning epic remains his undisputed masterpiece.

Set against the background of dust bowl Oklahoma and Californian migrant life, it tells of the Joad family, who, like thousands of others, are forced to travel West in search of the promised land. Their story is one of false hopes, thwarted desires and broken dreams, yet out of their suffering Steinbeck created a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision; an eloquent tribute to the endurance and dignity of the human spirit.

Review:

A novelist who is also a true poet ( Sunday Times)
