Ricketts, unorthodox California marine biologist, eclectic home-grown philosopher, eccentric, rumpled primitive, Steinbeck's friend and sometimes collaborator, was the model for ""Doc"" in In Dubious Battle, Cannery Row and Sweet Thursday, and for ""Jim Casey"" in The Grapes of Wrath. When Ricketts died and Steinbeck moved away from their common tidepool ambience to integrate his memories, he became ""a novelist without a vision""; as a ""writer in motion"" with no place to go but backward; as a ""product of his time"" lamenting the surrounding wasteland, he produced inferior work. Perceptive, but strictly academic. Ricketts, a marine biologist who lived on the Monterey . Richard Astro is an associate professor of English at Oregon State University. Ricketts, a marine biologist who lived on the Monterey waterfront in California, was a close friend of John Steinbeck, the novelist. As Professor Astro makes clear, no analysis of Steinbeck’s writing can proceed without a careful study of the life, work, and ideas of Ricketts, who was Steinbeck’s closest personal and intellectual companion for nearly two decades. 07044/?tag prabook0b-20.
