    Man, I love Steinbeck I love the simplicity of his characters and the humdrum feeling their lives evoke I love the indigence of his settings and the candidness with which these characters accept their conditions I love how quietly he frames his stories with comments on fatalism, while still revealing to us the potential for happiness that pushes at its surface, trying to elbow its way out At its core, the Steinbeck novel want us to figure out how to embrace the cards life has dealt us It kn Man, I love Steinbeck I love the simplicity of his characters and the humdrum feeling their lives evoke I love the indigence of his settings and the candidness with which these characters accept their conditions I love how quietly he frames his stories with comments on fatalism, while still revealing to us the potential for happiness that pushes at its surface, trying to elbow its way out At its core, the Steinbeck novel want us to figure out how to embrace the cards life has dealt us It knows that the sooner we do, the sooner that happiness can become ours for the taking It might be a fatalistic coin we re being asked to pocket, but it s a coin on which has been embossed a seal of optimism.But he certainly...

    One of my favorite childhood memories was my family vacation to California the year I turned nine On that trip one of our stops was the Monterey Bay Aquarium As a lover of all things marine biology I was captivated by the flora and fauna of the aquarium for an entire day Before there was an aquarium near Monterey s beach front, the city was home to a few block stretch of fish and fruit canneries so eloquently portrayed in Steinbeck s Cannery Row, the author s homage to depression era Monterey One of my favorite childhood memories was my fami...

    Why does Steinbeck s narrative voice entice me so, I ve been asking myself over the past few days In my second reading of this novella, which has become a favorite of mine, I realized that it s his unshakeable belief in mankind Steinbeck reinvents the concept of family and expands its boundaries with his blatant love for humanity Nobody is homeless in Cannery Row, not even imps or prostitutes, destitute painters or big hearted biologists, mentally impaired kids or immigrant shopkeepers Even Why does Steinbeck s narrative voice entice me so, I ve been asking myself over the past few days In my second reading of this novella, which has become a favorite of mine, I realized that it s his unshakeable belief in mankind Steinbeck reinvents the concept of family and expands its boundaries with his blatant ...

    Doc would listen to any kind of nonsense and turn it into wisdom His mind had no horizon and his sympathy had no warp He could talk to children, telling them very profound things so that they understood He lived in a world of wonders, of excitement He was concupiscent as a rabbit and gentle as hell Everyone who knew him was indebted to him And everyone who thought of him thought next, I really must do someth...

    When it rains, and rains, and rains, I drink my morning coffee and think of sunny California Of Steinbeck, of course Not that the world isperfect in his imagination than in my reality Far from it But it is dusty and dry, and that seems like a welcome change sometimes His characters would of course drink their coffee, stare at the dust and hope for rain and mud Such is the world As there are countless wonderful real reviews of this classic already, but I feel I have to add my enthusi When it rains, and rains, and rains, I drink my morning coffee and think of sunny California Of Steinbeck, of course Not that the world isperfect in his imagination than in my reality Far from it But it is dusty and dry, and that seems like a welcome change sometimes His characters would of course drink their coffee, stare at the dust and hope for rain and mud Such is the world As there are countless wonderful real reviews of this classic already, but I feel I have to add my enthusiasm about spending delicious hours rereading Cannery Row, laughing tears of amusement and sorrow, I will offer a little prayer quote, as honest as can be, the absolute antithesis to the equally powerful, yet hypocritical rhetoric of an Elmer Gantry Our Father who art in nature, who has given the gift of survival to the coyote, the common b...

    I first read this many years ago Riddled with ADD, frozen by nervousness, and thrown off by wack ass hormones, I had trouble reading anything at the time, and this was no exception A parable of my formerly wasted time on earth, I read it and got nothing out of it Hell, I didn t even remember I had read it until I started it again 10 days ago.But oh did I appreciate it this go round Steinbeck got me to like the kind of people that, at first judgment, I would deem ignorant, annoying, or mayb I first read this many years ago...

    how do i review cannery row like all the steinbeck i have read, except the dead pony, of which i remember very little except not being too keen on it, it is saturated with these wonderful marginalized characters who are desperate and hopeless and yearning but they are surviving and there is so much beauty in the squalor it reminds me in my feeling parts of suttree, which is one of my all tim...

    I owe Mr Steinbeck an apology I am so shamed that I cannot even use the familiar John I have taken this beautiful story and mucked it up I read about Lee Chong during a middle school basketball game, I learned of Dora Flood while riding the shuttle bus to work I grew to love hate Mack during a cheerleading competition filthy with Rihanna songs I fell in love with Doc and Frankie and Darling while watching a traumatic brain injured patient freak out about his meds I am not worthy This s I owe Mr Steinbeck an apology I am so shamed that I cannot even use the familiar John ...

    Steinbeck wrote one book about the Arthurian legends However, he wrote a few books using the Arthurian legend model and Cannery Row is one of them Here we have a marvelously fun tale, almost a tall tale, about the bums, prostitutes and common folk living on the California coast south of the San Francisco bay area in and about Monterey and Carmel by the Sea during the Great Depression Mischievous scamps get up to no good and little comes of it All of this is inconsequenti...
