The prize must have come, at least in part, because alongside the poverty and dispossession, Steinbeck chronicled the Joads refusal, even inability, to let go of their faltering but unmistakable hold on human dignity Witnessing their degeneration from Oklahoma farmers to a diminished band of migrant workers is nothing short of crushing The Joads lose family members to death and cowardice as they go, and are challenged by everything from weather to the authorities to the California locals themselves As Tom Joad puts it They re a workin away at our spirits They re a tryin to make us cringe an crawl like a whipped bitch They tryin to break us Why, Jesus Christ, Ma, they comes a time when the on y way a fella can keep his decency is by takin a sock at a cop They re workin on our decency. The point, though, is that decency remains intact, if somewhat battle scarred, and this, as much as the depression and the plight of the Okies, is a part of American history When the California of their dreams proves to be less than edenic, Ma tells Tom You got to have patience Why, Tom us people will go on livin when all them people is gone Why, Tom, we re the people that live They ain t gonna wipe us out Why, we re the people we go on It s almost as if she s talking about the very novel she inhabits, for Steinbeck s characters, than most literary creations, do go on They continue, now as much as ever, to illuminate and humanize an era for generations of readers who, thankfully, have no experiential point of reference for understanding the depression The book s final, haunting image of Rose of Sharon Rosasharn, as they call her the eldest Joad daughter, forcing the milk intended for her stillborn baby onto a starving stranger, is a lesson on the grandest scale You got to, she says, simply And so do we all Melanie RehakJourney with the Joads for 21 hours in this first unabridged version of Steinbeck s classic Controversial, even shocking, when it was written, the work continues to be so even today The keen listener can hear why, because it poses fundamental questions about justice, the ownership and stewardship of the land, the role of government, power, and the very foundations of capitalist society As history, this brings the Dust Bowl years to life in a most memorable way Steinbeck Travels with Charley, Audio Reviews, LJ 11 15 94 is a master storyteller and manages to engage the listener s sympathy with this epic story Reader Dylan Baker, who gives each character a distinctive voice, draws the listener in His female characters, especially the minor ones and Rose of Sharon, don t seem as authentic as his wonderful evocation of the fictional Tom, Ma, and Pa But his voice is easy to listen to, and he is faithful to the characters backgrounds and the plains region The music that ends each individual tape is perfect for the story This program is a well produced, affordable, and worthwhile addition for any library with a serious audiobook collection Nancy Paul, Brandon P.L., WICopyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.
