LITERARY PAPER OF THE GRAPES OF WRATH BY STEINBECK Steinbeck wrote many wonderful books but a great classic is one titled The Grapes of Wrath. This is a story of a i family called the Joads, and a tale of a courageous family who f sought security and family unity. In my paper I will examine the different ways the Joads tried to keep united whether just within their immediate t family or eventually with all the others who shared the same f struggles and sufferings. Steinbeck's dialogue and description's of the dusty roads, the men squatting in the dirt drawing pictures while r making major decisions, the way in which they traveled all m puts you right into the middle of the family. One becomes p aware and wants to be a part of there unity and their long for a security. Steinbeck's use of the characters dialect is s astoundingly excellent and unmistakenly realistic of the a Joad's culture. Without this dialogue, it would not be as J intense and vivid. J. Homer Caskey, in "Letters to the Editor" says, "Steinbeck's knowledge of the forces which hold a family together and the forces which cause it to disintegrate. He understands that family councils are an important part of the lives of the Joads."
