The Grapes of Rage is so totally, so guturally human that it’s practically difficult not to end up being engrossed in the life stories of the major personalities.

One that checks out very closely can locate much growth in the characters of Ma Joad, Rose of Sharon, Tom, and also even Al. Then there is the previous preacher, Casy, whose development happened before the Joads’ tale also started– yet Steinbeck uses peeks of that growth in his stories to the Joads.

The plain contrast can be seen in a corporate ranch owner, spruced up in gold chains, wryly using work to the hopeless Joads in the midst of a strike.
