John Steinbeck: The Favorite Writer Many Love To Hate
December 9, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm ESTFree
John Steinbeck’s writings have made him a favorite in the hearts and minds of millions of readers in the United States and across the world. Yet throughout his career, and even today 50 years after his death, he was (is) subjected to relentless, at times cruel, condemnation largely by the professional literary community. How can this apparent irony and enigma be explained? Explore this fascinating subject with Prof. Richard E. Hart, one of the few academics who has explored the philosophical dimensions of Steinbeck’s work. He serves on the editorial board of STEINBECK REVIEW and has been an officer of the International Society of Steinbeck Scholars. Registration required, limit 40.
