With an Introduction by Robert DeMott.
With an Introduction by Robert DeMott. Published by the Penguin Group. On June 18, 1938, a little more than three weeks after starting The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck confided in his daily journal (posthumously published as Working Days): If I could do this book properly it would be one of the really fine books and a truly American book. But I am assailed with my own ignorance and inability.
If a literary classic can be defined as a book that speaks directly to readers’ concerns in successive historical and cultural eras, no matter what their critical approaches, methods, or preoccupations are, then surely The Grapes of Wrath is such a work. Each generation of readers has found something new and relevant about it that speaks to its times. You might love it, you might hate it, but you probably won’t be indifferent.
