Mood Mood Pity •For migrants and small business owners who have orchards that will soon be taken over by the bank because they cannot make profit off their spoiled fruit. “…[The] debt will have choked the owner.” •For “Great owners” who are angry at migrants who come take the decaying fruit, who would come pick up fruit rather than pay 25 cents a dozen. Hopelessness •The family is constantly searching for work and struggling to feed everyone. •There is rot in California from the spoiled fruit and the corrupted deputies. •Weedpatch camp, Rose of Sharon does not feel that she fits in, due to the Christian Redemption •Weedpatch camp  getting second chance and the sanitation units cleanse them with the water, and they become all clean and properly dressed.
  4. 4. Literacy and Figurative Devices Literacy “Death was a friend and sleep was deaths brother.” Death is a friend because it simply means one less mouth to feed and much like sleep, it is freedom from the onslaught of the depression. metaphor “The migrant people, scuttling for work, scrabbling to live, looked always for pleasure, dug for pleasure, manufactured pleasure, and they were hungry for amusement.” The migrants worked to find work and if it did not pay good, they tried their luck to find another orchard, and if they found their would be short-lived joy for the two weeks the family would not have to live in poverty. Parallelism Archetypes Underdog~ Uncle John and Pa could not find work The Hero~ Tom finds a job, helps protect camp from deputies The Mother~ Ma is new leader of family because she guides, protects, and keeps family together The Innocent~ Rose of Sharon because she was frightened and felt alone Figurative Villain~ California because there false hope and deception. 
  5. 5. Figurative Figurative •“On the highways the people moved like ants and searched for work, for food.” Ants work in masses, quickly spreading…If they can’t find what they need ants quickly move to another location. •“I’ve been thinkin, maybe we ought to git up a turkey shootin’ club an have meetin’s ever’ Sunday.” Turkey’s represent the deputies. Black Hat thought the migrants should start fighting against the deputies instead taking their disrespect. Peter found this

  7. 7. Anger “And first the cherries ripen. Cent and a half a pound. Hell. We can’t pick em’ for that. Black cherries and red cherries, full and sweet, and the birds eat half of each cherry and the yellowjackets buzz into holes the birds made. And on the ground the seeds drop and dry with black shreds hanging from them.” “And in the eyes of the people there is the failure; and in the eyes of the hungry there is a growing wrath. In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.” Vintage: Winemaking~ when grapes are ripe and ready for their final destination.
  8. 8. Sub-Plot •Hardships of the migration, the hunger turning into anger (See chap. 25) •Reflection of the old times, pursuit of happiness •The beautiful spring with all the wealth that it brings to the owners and intellectuals such as doctors, and people who graft new plants into being. •Then there is fermenting, decay and sorrow for there is too much and they won’t make a profit •There is a rage that comes out, the people are hungry
  9. 9. Conflict •paid to start a “riot”  three men only doing what’s best for their family •Rose of Sharon  fear of hurting baby by dancing inner conflict •reader wants to know the outcome of the fight, wants to know what started all of the conflict, wants to know why the people would come in and start fighting for no good reason conflict inspires reader to think of reasons that this could happen and reasons why people turn against each other for money greed causes people to forget about what they are doing they forget about their values and do anything so they can get that money
  10. 10. Pa Character Development “Pa had been silent and withdrawn for a long time.” No longer provider  No longer head of the family. Ma Makes decisions and guides the family in the same direction so that they stay together Uncle John Became depressed, ashamed over past.

Tom He has redeemed himself of his imprisonment and taking a dominant role in the family as the supporter Ruthie Impulsive and became jealous of the children who were playing and having fun. Winfield Matured-watched his surroundings, did not make rash decisions. Rose of Sharon She is future for the Joads, Sharon us a fertile plain along he cost of Israel, and a Rose of Sharon is a shrub with showy flowers, meaning she bears the nurture and life of the family.

  11. 11. Narrative Tone Chapter 25 First~ everything is blooming and beautiful in California, there are successful men doctors, men of knowledge Second~ the fruit start to ripen, in large quantities Third ~there’s too much, they let it shrivel on the ground because they can’t make a profit Fourth~ not enough profit, too much fruit let it fall to the ground, “decay spread s over the state, and the sweet smell is a great sorrow to the land.” Fifth~ “And the smell of rot fills the country”, “And in the eyes of the hungry there is a growing wrath.” John Steinbeck’s tone changes from a happy, joyous, prosperous words, which describe the magnificence of California. Then the landowners Narrative begin loosing profit and the Tone changes to a pity and sadness for the Tone  migrants. The anger builds upon the hunger inside the migrants and it becomes a wrath, which swells like the fruit in the orchards.
  12. 12. Narrative Tone The overall tone is to create an understanding of the hardships and reality of the time.
