The Grapes of Wrath
The Grapes of Wrath | John Steinbeck
The Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression, a book that galvanizedand sometimes outragedmillions of readers.First published in 1939, Steinbecks 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 Joadsdriven 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 mans fierce reaction to injustice, and of one womans 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, Steinbecks 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.

The Grapes of Wrath | John Steinbeck

There is a sorrow here that weeping cannot symbolize. There is a failure here that topples all our successes. The fertile Earth, the straight tree rows, the sturdy trunks, and the ripe fruit. And the children dying of hunger must die because a profit cannot be taken from an orange. And coroners must fill in the certificates--died of malnutrition--because the food must rot if not sold at a profit.

Even though I'm not usually one for pancakes, from all the mentioned foods and dishes, this was the one that spoke to me the most. Pancake, maple syrup and bacon - a down to earth breakfast. I've also had some sugar and butter with it, since they had those too.

Wow - what a book! This is one I won't forget about that easily. Even though set during the Great Depression, it's still worth reading nowadays. Especially now, since Steinbeck addresses so many topics that we are still facing: economic crisis, how we treat refugees, environmental disasters due to pollution...
Not a lot is happening in the story, but a lot is going on. Steinbeck digs up the roots of human failures and shows us the face of despair.

The house was dead, and the fields were dead; but this truck was the active thing, the living principle. The ancient Hudson, with bent and scarred radiator screen, with grease in dusty lobules at the worn edges of every moving part, with hub caps gone and caps of red dust in their places—this was the new hearth, the living center of the family; half passenger
car and half truck, high-sided and clumsy.

Furore | John Steinbeck

Giunta alla fine di questo lungo viaggio di fame, morte e speranza, non posso fare a meno di pensare che è stato detto tutto. Dalla vita che scorre come un fiume, da un figlio costretto a scappare, da qualcuno che non ce l'ha fatta, dall'acqua che sale e dalla vita che vuole spegnersi ma che poi si trasforma in furore ... E finché c'è forza, c'è vita.

Grazie Steinbeck

East of Eden is still my favorite Steinbeck, but this book is such a heartbreaking story with absolutely beautiful writing.

Following the Joads on their journey for a better life, full of upsets at every turn, and yet somehow the family just keeps going, was one of the best literature experiences I've had in a while.

Thank you @TheAromaofBooks for choosing this book as my prize. I already know it will be well loved and read again and again.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It was the first Steinbeck I ever read and it absolutely gutted me. 8mo

So of course I had to go in. And I found this gorgeous vintage edition of The Grapes of Wrath. I‘m super excited to add this to my vintage collection. ???

#OnThisDay in 1940, another classic book to screen adaptation,The Grapes of Wrath, (starring Henry Fonda as Tom Joad), premiered in New York City to near universal critical acclaim. In true Hollywood style, the Joads were given a hopeful ending in the film, in contrast to the stark final moments of the book. It is considered one of the greatest films ever made, and was one of the first received into the Library of Congress. #HistoryGetsLIT

I didn‘t enjoy this quite as much as East of Eden, but it‘s another great Steinbeck novel. It provides a clear and personal description of this part of American history. I would have appreciated some more details about the later experiences of the Joad family, but the uncertainty and abruptness of of their stories also seems so appropriate. #1001books

The #audiobook narration by Dylan Baker was fantastic.

“And the great owners, who must lose their land in an upheaval, the great owners with access to history, with eyes to read history & to know the great fact: when property accumulates in too few hands it is taken away. And that companion fact: when a majority of people are hungry and cold they will take by force what they need. And the little screaming fact that sounds through all history: repression works only to strengthen & knit the repressed.”

Steinback is brutally honest picturing the early 20th century american society. People constantly daydreaming and at the same time facing harsh life conditions, poverty and hunger, makes him an author Europe should explore a lot more.

I am tagging along with @Branwen and listing one book each day this week to commemorate #bannedbooksweek . I‘m using the www.ALA.org list of Banned & Challenged Classics as my guide.

I‘m not much of a Steinbeck fan, but this is one of the most powerful books I‘ve ever read showcasing injustices faced by Americans during The Depression. Challenged mostly for vulgar language and a less than perfect portrayal of a Christian pastor.

Freespirit I have it in my library..I want to read it..you‘ve encouraged me👍🏼 2y
MsMelissa Read this in high school, and loved it! Not sure if I prefer this to East of Eden though. I haven‘t read any of Steinbeck‘s other novels. 2y
Ruthiella @Freespirit It can be a tough read but I really believe Steinbeck was close to his source material and accurately depicting how farmers exploited workers coming to California from the dust bowl. 2y
Ruthiella @Book_Fiend_Melissa I‘ve read East of Eden too and it‘s so different, IMO. Such a sweeping saga with larger than life characters. 2y

I desperately wanted that happily ever after but when reading historical fiction we know the hardships didn't just 'end'. The characters offered vast perspectives and the inner storylines read like lifestyle pieces rounding out the story. I'm in my 30s and never had The Grapes of Wrath as required reading in school, in a way I'm glad. I think I would have been too naive to fully grasp the story in its entirety.

Suet624 I probably should read it again at my ripe old age. 2y

There‘s a reason The Grapes of Wrath is a classic. It‘s a well-written and powerful book. Witnessing a dirt poor life as lived by the Joads would make anyone with any empathy cry — it should also make people angry that decent people who wanted to work, who wanted to feed their families, were (and still are) treated like dirt.

SamAnne This book had such an impact on me in my teens and it is on my list to reread. 2y
Freespirit I have never read this but I need to! 2y
KathyWheeler @SamAnne I don‘t know how I managed to not read it in my teens. Isn‘t it generally on a lot of school required reading lists? 2y

I‘ve been reading this book for a long time; it‘s not that it‘s not good — it is — it‘s just so incredibly sad that I can‘t read it for long periods of time. Today is my husband‘s and my 36th anniversary. We aren‘t really going to very many places because of COVID, but we took a short trip to the Mississippi beaches today and just relaxed. We also continued to listen to Wizard and Glass, and I read The Grapes of Wrath at the beach.

Steinbeck nails the true nature of man in this book; the good, the bad and the ugly. In this regard the Grapes of Wrath is a great read and definite classic. But the constant use of bad language in the dialog, especially taking the Lord‘s name in vain, made it difficult for me to read at times. Bad language does nothing to enhance a story and the older I get, the less I can tolerate it. Here it reduced a great book to merely good.

John Steinbeck masterfully tells of the plight of the depression era farmers fleeing the dust bowl of the Midwest to seek a living in the promised land of California. He illustrates this through the Joad family and their travels from Oklahoma to California. He also includes "interlude" chapters that tell of the environment and setting of the story. One of the main themes I see is fear. The "Okies" fear starvation. The Californians fear the Oakies.
