The Pulitzer Prize winning epic of the Great Depression a book that galvanized and sometimes outraged millions of readersFirst published in 1939 Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family the Joads driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the. Whenever I revisit a classic I m struck by how much I get out of it now than I did when I was 24 or 19 or God forbid 15 Giving a book like the Grapes of Wrath to a 15 year old serves largely to put them off fine literature for the rest of their lives The depth of understanding and compassion for the human condition as communicated by a book like this is simply unfathomable to those who haven t lived much life yet but after you ve gotten a healthy dose of living it comes across like fine music to a trained ear My heart doesn t bleed for the Joads today as it might have 25 years ago Yes it s grim and unfair but it s no longer shocking or disturbing and I can see now that Steinbeck didn t intend sensationalism to be the main point What he s about is revealing the human dignity the innate goodness and unbreakable pride of these people and by extension the American people in general something that still resonates today especially with reference to the working classes When the Joads and their kind decline government hand outs reuesting instead the simple opportunity to work hard and be rewarded commensurate with their labor even if it means a grueling cross country journey to a place they don t know one can hear today s white working poors exasperated disdain for government insisting that they simply be allowed to keep of their pay and not be held back in their efforts by nit picking legalities and cultural trivialities that disapprove of their lifestyles Sadly most such people will never read the Grapes of Wrath Worse yet many liberal lawmakers won t read it again after high school and won t glean from it an essential understanding about the pride and perseverance of the American working class which the far right is playing like a fiddle much to the detriment of the entire nation A book like the Grapes of Wrath should be reuired reading for every American over 30
