Talia Kottler Kanu p.6 4. what effect do the inter-chapters have on the reader? How do they help reinforce Steinbeck’s critical perspective on the plight of the migrant farmers? -The inter-chapters play a detrimental role for the reader in several ways. They provide us with general knowledge about the social and economic aspects of America during those times. They also foreshadow events and occasionally explain the events of that specific time period and ties in previous chapters to future chapters. They specifically reinforce Steinbeck’s perspective on the migrant farmers by describing the catastrophic economic crisis that was destroying the nation because it became extremely difficult. We see the difference between the relationship between the Joad family and the average American farmer. These inter-chapters provide us a deeper meaning that we will see later in the novel. 7. Which narrative stylistic and structural elements enable Steinbeck to endow his novel with a powerful sense of realism and authenticity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
