The pearl by John Steinbeck (about the book, author, characters and plot)

  1. 1. The Pearl by: John Steinbeck
  2. 2. Outline  About the Book  About the Author  Major Characters  Plot
  3. 3. About the BookGeneral Information
  4. 4. Type of Literary work: Novel Genre: Parable, Allegory Time and Place Written: 1944–1945, California Date of First Publication: 1945 - in serial form, where it was entitled “The Pearl of the World” 1947 - in book form Publisher: The Viking Press General Information
  5. 5. Setting: Time - possibly late nineteenth or early twentieth century (unclear) Place – La Paz on Baja Peninsula which is a Mexican coastal village Tense: Past Point of View: Third Person (Omniscient) General Information
  6. 6. Themes: Greed – a destructive force; All competition in this novel is unhealthy, and everyone is motivated by self- interest, not concern for others. The roles of fate and agency in shaping human life. Colonial society’s oppression of native cultures. Family - The Pearl is about pursuing wealth and the dangers that such an endeavor brings. Because wealth is so highly valued (for no good reason, the novella argues), men make extraordinary sacrifices in its name. Such blind, irrational values can only bring destruction in this text. General Information
  7. 7. Themes: Good vs. Evil - The family is good; greed is evil. Love is good; destruction is evil. Oppressive colonization, corrupt capitalism, and racism all go on the "evil" list, which we have to say is a tad longer than the "good" one. In this novel, the only thing that stands outside the clear evil vs. good dichotomy is the pearl itself – it simply reflects what is around it. That the pearl ends up reflecting evil is an indication of The Pearl’s grim view of the world General Information
  8. 8. Themes: Gender - The male is the leader of the household. He is dominant, he is the decision- maker, and the family’s welfare rests solely on his shoulders. The female, on the other hand, is submissive, deferent, and nearly always silent. General Information
  9. 9. Themes: Man and the Natural World - The natural world is not to be trusted in The Pearl. The setting is composed of mirages, dream-like visions that are false representations of reality. The novel suggests that man makes what he will of the natural world; it is reflective in nature, and he sees what he wants to see. That the pearl itself is a product of the natural world is further evidence that man can corrupt what was once beautiful and pure General Information
  10. 10. Themes: Man and the Natural World - The natural world is not to be trusted in The Pearl. The setting is composed of mirages, dream-like visions that are false representations of reality. The novel suggests that man makes what he will of the natural world; it is reflective in nature, and he sees what he wants to see. That the pearl itself is a product of the natural world is further evidence that man can corrupt what was once beautiful and pure. General Information Symbols: Pearl Scorpion
  11. 11. About the Author “I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man has no dedication or any membership in literature ” - John Steinbeck-
  12. 12. John Steinbeck Whole Name: John Ernst Steinbeck Jr. Born: February 27, 1902 Birth Place: Salinas, California Father: John Ernst Steinbeck Occupation: owned a feed-and-grain store, managed a flour plant and served as treasurer of Monterey County Mother: Olive Hamilton Steinbeck Occupation: former schoolteacher
  13. 13. John Steinbeck Siblings: three (3) sisters Childhood Description: shy, but smart, and formed an early appreciation for the land, and in particular California's Salinas Valley, which would greatly inform his later writing.
  14. 14. Educational Background: In 1919, Steinbeck enrolled at Stanford University—a decision that had more to do with pleasing his parents than anything else. Over the next six years, Steinbeck drifted in and out of school, eventually dropping out for good in 1925, without a degree. John Steinbeck
  15. 15. Other works: Cup of Gold (1929); (1932); To a God Unknown (1933); Tortilla Flat (1935); Dubious Battle (1936); Of Mice and Men (1937); The Long Valley (1938); and The Grapes of Wrath (1939) John Steinbeck
  16. 16. Characters Analysis
  17. 17. Characters Kino – protagonist; motivated by basic drives: his love for his family, loyalty to the traditions of his village and his people, and frustration at his people’s oppression at the hands of their European colonizers. Kino also possesses a quick mind and a strong work ethic, and he feels a close, pure kinship with the natural world, the source of his livelihood.
  18. 18. Characters Juana – wife if Kino; more reflective and more practical than Kino; has the presence of mind; loyal and submissive, obeying her husband as her culture dictates. The Doctor – symbolizes and embodies the colonists’ arrogance, greed, and condescension toward the natives, whom the colonists do not even try to understand.
  19. 19. Plot Major Conflict Rising Action Climax Falling Action
  20. 20. Major Conflict : After finding a magnificent pearl, Kino seeks to sell it to acquire wealth. He wishes for his son’s wound to heal, and for his son to obtain an education and become an equal to the European colonists who keep his people in a state of ignorance and poverty. When he tries to sell the pearl, however, Kino quickly meets resistance in the form of other people’s greed. Ultimately, his struggle to acquire wealth places him at odds with his family, his culture, and nature, as Kino himself succumbs to greed and violence.
  21. 21. Rising Action : A scorpion stings Coyotito; Kino discovers a great pearl; Kino’s attempts to sell the pearl are unsuccessful, and he is mysteriously attacked; Kino beats Juana for attempting to discard the pearl. Climax: Kino kills a man who attacks him for his pearl, an event that exposes the tension surrounding this object as a bringer of great evil as well as a chance for salvation.
  22. 22. Falling Action: Kino and Juana flee the village and find themselves chased by trackers; Kino fights with the trackers, not knowing that they have taken Coyotito’s cry to be that of a coyote and shot him; Kino and Juana return to the village and throw the pearl back into the sea.
