John Steinbeck

$ 3.99

A giant of American literature, John Steinbeck is celebrated for his naturalistic novels with proletarian themes. His magnum opus ‘The Grapes of Wrath’ (1939), which epitomises the harrowing events of the Great Depression era, stirred widespread sympathy for the plight of migrant workers. Many of Steinbeck’s works are set in the Salinas Valley of his childhood and they frequently explore themes of fate and the injustices suffered by their everyman protagonists. Fashioned with rich symbolic structures, they convey archetypal qualities in enduring characters, winning for Steinbeck the 1962 Nobel Prize for Literature. For the first time in literature, this eBook presents John Steinbeck’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, detailed introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
