The Grapes of Wrath

First published in 1939, Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into haves and have-nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity. The Grapes of Wrath is perhaps the most American of American classics.
The film version of The Grapes of Wrath, starring Henry Fonda as Tom Joad and directed by John Ford, had its world premiere in New York City on Jan. 24, 1940.
