John Steinbeck's Predatory America : Human as Hunter and Hunted
MetadataShow full item record
According to the author, "Steinbeck launches a two-fold argument in The Grapes of Wrath, Cannery Row, and Tortialla Flat. What is fundamentally human is also fundamentally animal, and what is prescribed for a just society, in Steinbeck's viewpoint, is the reversal and rejection of conventional models of exience, those which are predatory. It is one and for all the great individual, the criminal, the whore, the "un-saved" that are the enlightened in Steinbeck's complex world of counter-culture, and it is above all the responsibility of the individual to advocate change in the predatory world."
