Sandy posts on 3/23/2005 6:38:33 PM I'm looking for a passage in East of Eden where a parade of returning soldiers takes place and the main character explains what the war really means to him.

brandy posts on 3/18/2005 7:45:44 PM The Pearl, is ok, but not nothing extra. It has good points and low points to. I didnt really get in to it much, I also dont understand how the baby actuall died , and when kino walked out side and was struck. What was he struck by , How was the baby killed? well i read this story for english , and well it was boring if you ask me.

... posts on 3/2/2005 6:51:44 PM A lot of you are quick to criticize Steinbeck and his work, but you can't even spell correctly in your posts. You may not be keen on the type of literature he writes, but Steinbeck accomplished a lot in his lifetime and wrote books that can be entertaining for those with an open mind. I know his novels lack unity, but at the end of the book you will understand more. I guarantee it.
