  • Why Read John Steinbeck? | The Martha Heasley Cox Center for Steinbeck Studies | San Jose State University
    and interior landscapes often shaped by the places where we live John Steinbeck s work brings together both these landscapes in extraordinary ways ways that may deeply affect those of us living at the cusp of a new century Steinbeck loved the burnished Salinas hills and the churning Pacific Like some of America s greatest writers Thoreau Faulkner Cather Steinbeck made his childhood haunts vividly real In book after book he charted his course in the letters or journals he wrote as warm ups to the day s writing Steinbeck wanted his prose to recapture a child s vision of colors more clear than they are to adults of tastes more sharpI want to put down the way afternoon felt and of the feeling about a bird that sang in a tree in the evening He asks that readers pay respectful attention to an external landscape He invites us to look Orange and speckled and fluted nudibranchs slide gracefully over the rocks their skirts waving like the dresses of Spanish dancers Passages of stark beauty are found in every Steinbeck novel sentences that record the rapt attention he paid to the natural world And then he asks that we shift perspective American literature is full of conquest narratives John Smith as Virginia cavalier Natty Bumppo as pathfinder Ernest Hemingway as marksman But for John Steinbeck nature is not a commodity animals not for slaughter For his is not a man centered but a holistic universe with humans seen as simply another species bound intimately to the places where they live breed drink love suffer and catch frogs In Steinbeck s California novels characters inhabit communities and are connected with one another Sam Hamilton with Adam Trask Doc Ricketts with Mack and the boys the Joads with all migrants And all of these characters are shaped by the places they live Soledad Tortilla Flat a bone dry King City Ranch or to the roads they travel Route 66 Highway 1 to the Carmel Valley Steinbeck s is a vision of ecological cooperation of the human s interdependence with nature and one another As important to Steinbeck is the internal landscape often one shaped by isolation loneliness failure I always ask my students to look carefully at the first paragraphs of Steinbeck s novels where the external and characters internal landscapes coalesce Of Mice and Men in particular The strong and rocky Gabilan Mountains are in the distance George and Lennie take shelter in a glade that has nurtured tramps boys and deer That scene evokes their lowly status throughout the book these lonely men seek shelter from the strong in the bunkhouse or the barn Steinbeck understood such desolate interiors But his is never the language of despair but of empathy George and Lennie are great friends of each other of each reader Steinbeck reaches out a fictional hand Emotional bonds are forged between book and reader Pauline Pearson who spent countless hours interviewing Steinbeck s Salinas associates for the Steinbeck
