By John Steinbeck One of Steinbeck’s most popular works and taught in schools under the mistaken idea that it is somehow ‘simple’! This is one of the works in which the ‘American Dream’ is reduced to having a little piece of land and being left alone to enjoy it. Here Steinbeck gives a compelling voice to the lonely and the dispossessed and shows that friendship is the most precious asset anyone has.
