This volume of Social Issues in Literature examines John Steinbeck's life and work, with a specific look at key ideas related to The Pearl. The text discusses a variety of topics, including whether Kino chooses enslavement to wealth in order to escape poverty, and whether the townspeople have a parasitic relationship with the poor. The book also explores contemporary perspectives on poverty, such as the changing views of the term ?culture of poverty? and the relationship between western materialism and spiritual depression.
"this series focuses on how social issues have been presented in classic literature. These books provide a unique perspective to the United States' social issues both past and present." --ARBA, March 2009
