In dem Roman " The Grapes of Wrath " sucht die Farmerfamilie Joad, sogenannte "Okies", auf den Obst- und Baumwollplantagen Kaliforniens nach der Erfullung des amerikanischen Traums, um der Armut und den Umweltkatastrophen in den Great Plains im sudlichen Mittleren Westen zu entgehen. IN Kalifornien begegnen ihnen allerdings Anfeindung und Ausbeutung, die einzige Erholung bietet ein staatliches Migrantenlager. Der Roman ist seit seinem Erscheinen 1939 auch heute noch derart fesselnd, weil er der Familie Joad auf menschlicher Ebene begegnet und beschreibt, wie sie eine tragische Situation bewaltigen, die groSStenteils auSSerhalb ihrer Kontrolle liegt - eine Situation, die sowohl von Wirtschaftskrisen als auch von Umweltkatastrophen herruhrt.

Die skrupellosen Manipulationen der Finanzmarkte an der Wall Street betrachtet, die zur Weltwirtschaftskrise 2007-2009 fuhrten.

Explanation of the Book:

In this compelling biography of a book, Susan Shillinglaw delves into John Steinbeck's classic to explore the cultural, social, political, scientific, and creative impact of The Grapes of Wrath upon first publication, as well as its enduring legacy. First published in April 1939, Steinbeck's National Book Award-winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. The story of their struggle remains eerily relevant in today's America and stands as a portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, "in the souls of the people."

Explanation of the Book:

"I think Eleanor Roosevelt has so gripped the imagination of this moment because we need her and her vision so completely. . . . She's perfect for us as we enter the twenty-first century. Eleanor Roosevelt is a loud and profound voice for people who want to change the world." -- Blanche Wiesen Cook Named "Woman of the Century" in a survey conducted by the National Women's Hall of Fame, Eleanor Roosevelt wrote her hugely popular syndicated column "My Day" for over a quarter of that century, from 1936 to 1962. This collection brings together for the first time in a single volume the most memorable of those columns, written with singular wit, elegance, compassion, and insight -- everything from her personal perspectives on the New Deal and World War II to the painstaking diplomacy required of her as chair of the United Nations Committee on Human Rights after the war to the joys of gardening at her beloved Hyde Park home. To quote Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., "What a remarkable woman she was! These sprightly and touching selections from Eleanor Roosevelt's famous column evoke an extraordinary personality." "My Day reminds us how great a woman she was." --Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Explanation of the Book:

The Grapes of Wrath: A Re-Consideration is a collection of essays compiled by Steinbeck bibliographer, Michael J. Meyer, in celebration of the novel's seventieth anniversary. Following the pattern of previous books in the Dialogue series, this study presents analyses by senior Steinbeck scholars and also introduces several new voices. Issues addressed include accusations about the novel's sentimentality, speculations about its status as a work of naturalism, and questions about its experimental structure. In addition, the language and imagery of the novel, its religious overtones, and its reputation as a radical work of art are revisited with fresh insights. Because The Grapes of Wrath holds iconic stature as an American masterpiece, both scholarly and lay readers will welcome this two volume set since it includes many new avenues of approach that will encourage greater insights, deeper understandings, and further explorations of the complexities of Steinbeck’s achievements in this classic work of art.
