A Study Guide on two of John Steinbeck's most famous works
A generously contextualized and uncompromisingly objective commentary on two of Steinbeck's most widely read novels. Contemporary circumstance is particularly relevant to these classic books – Of Mice and Men is a timely warning about fascism, and The Grapes of Wrath is an emblem for the oppressed in Depression-era America – so a significant proportion of this study is given over to the framing of social, economic and political context. It includes a survey of the more prominent critical approaches to the texts, and particular emphasis is given to the importance of Steinbeck's relationship to Modernism. It also offers an insightful, dialogic reading of the books that is both accessible and clearly signposted throughout.
