Overview

This video, part of the Famous Authors series, examines the life and work of the multi-faceted and controversial writer John Steinbeck. His early background in a farming area of California enriched Steinbeck's writings with themes of poverty, depression, and nature, while also bringing realism to the words he wrote. Best known for his many novels, including Of Mice and Men and The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck was also a famed playwright and screenwriter. Though his works caused him to become a politically disruptive figure, even labeled a Communist, Steinbeck's writing continuously impressed critics, earning him both a Pulitzer Prize and a Nobel Prize for Literature. This video captures the world of Steinbeck, featuring portraits, photographs, and archival material along with commentary from professors and scholars. ~ Cecilia Cygnar
