Description
 
Born in Salinas, California, novelist John Steinbeck was best noted for his portrayal of the proletariat. His writing realistically depicted the economically depressed in the U.S., particularly the itinerant farm laborers of California. Grapes Of Wrath is the novel which best fits this characterization.

The subjects of Steinbeck's writing and fascination included the sea, traveling and common people. His fondness for the "unfinished children of nature" was a recurring theme in his novels.

Steinbeck won a Pulitzer Prize in 1940 and the Nobel Prize for literature in 1962. Some of his works include; East of Eden, Of Mice and Men, The Pearl, The Red Pony and Cup of Gold.
