    1. I’ve never been so struck by the ending of any piece of fiction. I literally gasped. Then I sobbed.Poetic. Political. Polemical. And dead on.

    2. Steinbeck, John. THE HARVEST GYPSIES. (in The Grapes of Wrath and Other Writings, 1938-1941). ****. “The Harvest Gypsies” was a study that Steinbeck published in 1936, in preparation for his writing of “The Grapes of Wrath.” Most writers do research before writing a novel, but this short work showed that he managed to identify his subject well. In it, he manages to define the opposing groups: the pickers and the growers. Then, however, there was a new vector. Migrant pickers used to be M [...]

    3. And this you can know—fear the time when Manself will not suffer and die for a concept, for this one quality is the foundation of Manself, and this one quality is man, distinctive in the universe.This review is for The Grapes of Wrath only.This is the second time I’ve read The Grapes of Wrath. I’ve also read a few other works by John Steinbeck. The Grapes of Wrath is a realist novel, third-person narrative, telling the tale of Joad family as they flee the dustbowl of Oklahoma for the land [...]

    4. My sister gave me this collection for my birthday (thanks, Krista!), and I'm loving it. In addition to The Grapes Of Wrath, which is my favorite novel, this collection includes The Long Valley (a volume of short stories, which are humorous, entertaining, and insightful), The Harvest Gypsies (a work of nonfiction research that laid the groundwork for Grapes), and The Log from the Sea of Cortez (a work of nonfiction featuring Steinbeck's friend, Ed Ricketts). I read The Long Valley first, and I'm [...]

    5. Este ambicioso tomo incluye tres libros y un par de apéndices, del periodo donde el escritor comienza a ganar el reconocimiento del público en general. Mis comentarios para cada libro por separado se pueden ver aquí:The Long ValleyThe Grapes of WrathThe Log from the Sea of CortezThe Harvest Gypsies

    6. Let us give thanks for library used book sales and Library of America: the former because I was able to snag an LOA edition for two bucks, and the latter because of the meticulous care they take when choosing which works to include in a volume. In this case, the LOA published three volumes to cover as much of Steinbeck's work as possible, the edition I scored covering the author's works from 1936-41. At first glance, I saw the list of works included and thought I'd get to the book at some future [...]

    7. Seeing the movie before reading the novel inevitably fills the head with scenery and the faces of the actors, as the imagination is a resourceful scavenger of stored memories, but this shift of perception far from ruined my experience with The Grapes of Wrath. There was no way to shake the mug of Henry Fonda from my second acquaintance with Tom Joad. Instead of this serving as a distraction, it provided me with a template to deepen the character of this charismatic, unsubmissive anchor to the no [...]

    8. Grapes of Wrath:-It is not easy to read, and I found it easier to see the film and understood better - but therefore all the more I value this work, not because it is difficult but because I could grasp it through the film. And the film truly was great, especially when it came to the dialogue of mother and son at the end - and Henry Fonda forever marked his place amongst the great with his portrayal and his delivery in the last speech. It is an entirely worthy, great - in the original sense of t [...]

    9. Grapes of Wrath:Wow!I just finished reading this and what an ending. Honestly the best ending I've ever read in any book. Steinbeck writes so clearly I can feel the cotton in the feilds and the pouring rain through the valley. I highly recommend this book for anyone, especially if you like adventure.The Long Valley: Steinbeck's literary brilliance shines through in this collection of short stories. From ranching to racial inequality to the beauty of nature, Steinbeck never fails to entertain and [...]

    10. July 09: The Long Valley, 4 of 5The most of Valley's collection is solid, standard Steinbeck fare. The eleventh of thirteen stories, "Saint Katy", however, is terribly out of place in both style and content, a poorly executed experiment in fable having nothing whatever to do with the rest of the collection's shared elements of time, manner and place. It's really quite puzzling and bizarre why after ten stories we suddenly leave early 20th-century Salinas Valley in order to witness Steinbeck comp [...]

    11. I was born in Oklahoma City and have spent most of my life living in the state of Oklahoma. What can a native Oklahoman have to say that is bad to this classic of world literature? Nothing that is intelligible. Steinbeck's writing is engaged throughout this tragic tale of the Joads. Though clearly a piece of socialist propaganda it does not hit the reader in the head with what it is in the same way that such pieces as Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" does. By that, I mean it is a really good story. [...]

    12. I was excited to read The Grapes of Wrath, as I recently became a Steinbeck fan and this is perhaps his most famous novel. But I was not impressed. He's a little too narcissistic when he gets in his descriptive mode; I like meat, not flowery appetizers. The plot is merely every other chapter - the in-betweeners are pure scenery. The language is pretty crude, too (which I don't mind overlooking if the plot compensates for it), and about half way through the book I realized I was forcing myself to [...]

    13. O carte superba. calatorit cu familia Joad din Oklahoma pana in California, am fost alaturi de ei prin toate greutatile lormi-am facut sperante impreuna cu ei, sperand ca pana la urma vor avea o viata decenta, in casuta lor albafara foame , fara grija zilei de mainedarTristOare e o coincidenta ca am citit aceasta carte fix in momentele astea cand mii si mii de refugiati vin in Europa?

    14. See my individual reviews of _The Long Valley_, _The Grapes of Wrath_, and _The Log from the Sea of Cortez_. I did want to say something about the appendix materials, "The Harvest Gypsies" and "Starvation under the Orange Trees" (later collected in a pamphlet titled _Their Blood Is Strong_). These latter materials are a series of newspaper articles Steinbeck wrote between 1936 and 1938 documenting the "terrorist" tactics of farmers against migrant workers. The anger is righteous and justified, a [...]

    15. The Log from the Sea of Cortez details a trip Steinbeck took to the Gulf of California. It's up and down but has some very good highs.The Harvest Gypsies is basically a real Grapes of Wrath but I felt it should have been much longer.The Long Valley covers most of the themes Steinbeck touched on throughout his career over its several stories.The Grapes of Wrath is Steinbeck's crowning achievement and one of the greatest novels of all time.

    16. The story of the people of the land I am from. A ravaging read. The sprawling tale of the Joads is not an easy journey, but it does light upon the resilience of hardworking Americans. A clear and mighty observing of the lengths of which we are capable. A call to action.

    17. I re-read many of Steinbeck's books in winter for a conference I had planned on attending. Didn't make it to the conference, but enjoyed the reading. The end image of Grapes of Wrath still leaves me speechless. I especially enjoyed "The Long Valley" this time around.

    18. I read Grapes of Wrath several times in my youth and was very moved by it. Having just reread it, I was totally blown away. The commentary chapters in between the Joad story chapters are magnificent. Wow!

    19. Ugh! Worse book ever! What makes this a classic???? You read about this family during the Great Depression, you get close to the characters and it just ends with no resolution, no hope, nothing!!! Ugh!

    20. I enjoyed all the stories with the exception of 'The Log from the Sea of Cortez.' I got about four chapters in and said nevermind. But the rest of the stories were good, I enjoyed 'The Grapes of Wrath' particularly well, as well as 'The Harvest Gypsies'.

    21. Read The Grapes of Wrath as a child; the others in this volume, not yet. I love the Library of America volumes because of the author chronologies, the long lasting construction, and the silk place marker.

    22. Steinbeck was just entering his 'Golden Period' in 1936 and this is a magnificent collection of his greatest work including The Grapes of Wrath which one read lives in you memory like a visceral experience.

    23. I only read The Grapes of Wrath from this book. It was a very good story, even though the beginning was slow and the end was really weird.
