John Steinbeck won a Pulitzer Prize in 1940 for 'The Grapes of Wrath', and his oeuvre also includes such classics as 'East of Eden', 'Of Mice and Men', and 'The Red Pony'. In 1962, Steinbeck was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "for his realistic as well as imaginative writings, combining as they do sympathetic humour and a keen social perception." Bloom's How to Write about John Steinbeck offers valuable paper-topic suggestions, clearly outlined strategies on how to write a strong essay, and an insightful introduction by Harold Bloom on writing about Steinbeck. This new volume is designed to help students develop their analytical writing skills and critical comprehension of this legendary author and his works.
