    Paperback Ï Cannery Row PDF/EPUB ↠ cannery free, Cannery Row KindleMan 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 fi

    Paperback Ï Cannery Row PDF/EPUB ↠ cannery free, Cannery Row KindleWhy 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 mongrels and frogs are treated with decorum in this picturesque portrait of comradeship in Monterrey CaliforniaInterweaving a wide array of anecdotes with symbolic connotations Steinbeck paints decent lives for the dispossessed that endure the sentence of social marginalization Unexpected dignity comes in the form of reciprocal support selfless loyalty and the humbling acceptance of the foibles of human condition and as if by some sort of magic the unappealing milieu of r

    Paperback Ï Cannery Row PDF/EPUB ↠ cannery free, Cannery Row Kindlehow 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 time favorite books this book is full of such well meaning ineptitude and many very serious things couched in an effortless prose that comes across as almost humorous or rather amused i'm not sure how to articulate all that i am feeling for steinbeck right now this one will never be my favorite but its been so long since i read him i am remembering why i always list hi
