  • The Chrysanthemums By John Steinbeck - 385 words
    In John Steinbecks short story The Chrysanthemums a struggle for equality is portrayed through the character Elisa Allen. Elisa is a frustrated woman living in a male dominated society. This theme is introduced to the audience at the beginning of the story. Elisas figure is described as blocked and heavy and her home is described as hard-swept and hard-polished. I believe that Elisa is possibly unhappy with her female role, so in turn, she tries to reach out into some masculine areas or activities. Elisa seems as though she attempts to react to situations as a man would, but due to a womans emotional side she is unable to do so. Take, for instance, when her husband comments about her strong ...

    Nature has been around since the beginning of all time. Nature has even been here since long before the dinosaurs. People have been brought up and have lived off of nature and its nourishments. Nature is a wonderful yet dangerous thing. It can be as gentle as a breeze on a warm summer day or as deadly and ferocious as a violent hurricane in a populated city. Although man has lived through many tragic and deadly natural disasters, man has always been trying to grasp a hold of and capture a victory over anything that is disturbing. Once a philosopher named Charles Darwin described nature as, Survival of the fittest. Darwin was describing the natural evolution and how nature is always in contro ...

Struggle, discontent, and the inherent obstacles in life are not particularly unique to the characters of the American novelist, however the experiences and the perseverance of each have defined our country and our society in similar ways.

  • The Grapes Of Wrath - 1,579 words
    Through such hardships as the Depression, the Dust Bowl summers, and trying to provide for their own families, which included the search for a safe existence, we find the story of the Joad's. The Joad's are the main family in John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath, which he created to give voice to the hundreds of families that found themselves at their absolute rock bottom during the Great Depression of the 20th Century in America. It wouldn't have been enough for Steinbeck to simply document the strife that faced these families in very plain terms, for anyone could have simply logged an account of events and published it. Rather, he needed to draw us in with emotional content, to do th ...

  • Steinbeck - 1,682 words
    Steinbeck' s The Pearl was based on a story he had heard during his expedition with a friend to the Gulf of California about a poor Mexican fisherman who found a pearl which he though would guarantee his future happiness, but however it almost destroyed him before he threw it back into the ocean (Astro 62). "While Ricketts idea about the inherent virtues of the simple, natural life serve as a thematic substratum on which Steinbeck builds his parable, the novelist's chief concern in The Pearl is with how man's failure to "participate" in "the region inward adjusts" can lead to complete personal and social disintegration" (Astro 66). "Man himself appears, becomes, or emerges as good or evil be ...

  • Paradox - 545 words
    Author John Steinbeck writes "In no country are more seeds and plants and equipment purchased and less vegetables and flowers raised." This quote stood out to me. I see many instances in which our neighbors or friends return from a store with ideas and garden tools. They retrieve their spades, hoes, and other gardening tools, and set out to create a masterpiece, bringing color and life into their yards. But over the weeks the lack of effort and hard work needed to grow a plentiful garden are lacking. The pedals drop off the stems and shrivel up, and instead of a beautiful and bountiful garden there is a sloppy brown instead. I guess you could say that I agree with the passage mentioned in St ...
