Amy's Slant on literature…

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

Posted on: 09/11/2010


A literary masterpiece! A story about migrant workers from Oklahoma and Texas trying to make their way to California in the hope of finding work. John Steinbeck took this subject very seriously as he actually migrated with one family from Oklahoma to California to understand the families’ plight. John Steinbeck won a Pulitzer Prize for this novel and later a Nobel Prize for literature for his body of work. Another very successful novel of his is ” Of Mice and Men” is about migrant workers as well and mandatory reading in school. I highly recommend reading these novels!
