  4. 4. Emerson’s Over-Soul<br />Over-soul is a concept about human beings being bound to each other spiritually. The soul of every individual is a tiny little piece of a much bigger soul. We are all members of one big human family. Therefore, we become responsible for what happens to our neighbors and the whole society. <br />
  5. 5. Emerson’s Over-Soul (continued)<br />- The Grapes of Wrath chronicles the story of two “families”: the Joads and the collective body of migrant workers.<br />-Although the Joads are joined by blood, the novel argues that it is not their genetics but instead their loyalty and commitment to one another that establishes their true kinship. Which shows their relationship among each other is really close.<br />-Nearly the end, the two groups merge into one, sharing one another’s hardships and committing to one another’s survival.<br />- Eventually Tom realizes, “his” people are all people.<br />
  6. 6. Emerson’s Over-Soul (Continued)<br />- The conflict in the novel between the impoverished migrants and the established, secure business people and Californians serves as strong criticism of economic injustice.<br /> - The migrants’ agrarian way of life has all but disappeared, threatened not only by nature’s drought and dust storms, but also by big farms and financial establishments, called “Bank”.<br />
  7. 7. Character Development <br />Pa:<br /> -Returns to the boxcar because of the floods<br /> - Buys bread and Bacon<br />Ma:<br /> -Still wants the family to stay together but it continues to disintegrate <br /> -Sees a barn<br /> -comes to realize that there's more things important then family=she believes now that whom ever needs help is more important<br />Rose of Sharon:<br /> -Becomes really sick<br /> -Goes in labor=her baby is stillborn<br /> -Gives milk to the sick man in the barn because he can not digest solids<br />Al:<br /> -Separated from the family<br />Uncle John:<br /> -Buries Rose of Sharon's stillborn child<br />
  8. 8. Intercalary Chapter(Chapter 29)<br />Rains come and turns the land into lakes and streams<br />Migrant workers helplessly watch<br />Cannot get government relief<br />Men are forced to steal food<br />Many people are dying and becoming sick<br />Fear turns to anger<br />
  9. 9. The need for compassion and justice for the oppressed <br />- The Joads experience many hardships, deprivations, and deaths, and at the end of the novel are barely surviving. Nevertheless, the mood of the novel is optimistic. <br />-This positive feeling is derived from the growth of the Joad family as they begin to realize a larger group consciousness at the end of the novel. <br />-The development of this theme can be seen particularly in Ma Joad, from her focus on keeping the family together to her recognition of the necessity of identifying with the group. <br />- The workers at the Weedpatch camp govern themselves according to their own rules and share tasks in accordance with notions of fairness and equality rather than power-hungry ambition or love of authority.<br />
  10. 10. The role of technology in society<br />- The tenant farmers rely on growing methods of bygone days. Because machines can make land profitable, landowning banks send in tractors and dozers. <br />- Machine drivers lose touch with the soil; in effect, they become nonhuman pieces of equipment.<br />
  11. 11. The realization that change is part of the human condition<br />Through out the novel we've seen Rose of Sharon as a naïve self-centered girl. However with the death of her baby we can see her as a mature individual.<br />Rose of Sharon has transferred into a figure of maternal love especially when the dying man was laying on her lap and she was sucking him.<br />We can now see her as an image of generosity which she had lacked before.<br />
  12. 12. The need to work together to achieve a common goal<br /> Chapter 29:<br />Even though the men are forced to beg for food and become angry the women really know that the men will remain strong as long as they don't become angry=women have hope in the men<br />"women and children knew deep in themselves that no misfortune was too great to bear if their men where whole"=no matter what the women watch over the men to see if the break has yet to come<br />
  13. 13. The Need to work together to achieve a common goal (continued)<br />Chapter 30:<br />Ma finds a barn and inside the barn their is a boy who tells ma/the Joan family that his father is starving and that "he ain't et for six days"<br />Because Rose of Sharon is in labor, Pa tells the men that they should build a damn to protect her while in labor....sadly the dam breaks due to a fall of a tree<br />Because of the rain the family is forced to find dry land....Uncle John and Ma carry people on their backs<br />Even though Rose of Sharon had a dream of having her own place with her baby she later learns that being in labor had saved the sick mans life because of producing milk=she found her womanhood<br />Everyone comes to realize that "they" all need each others help regardless of who he/she is<br />
