    John Steinbeck III was an American writer He wrote the Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Grapes of Wrath, published in 1939 and the novella Of Mice and Men, published in 1937 In all, he wrote twenty five books, including sixteen novels, six non fiction books and several collections of short stories In 1962 Steinbeck received the Nobel Prize for Literature.Steinbeck grew up in the Salinas Valley region of California, a culturally diverse place of rich migratory and immigrant history This upbringing imparted a regionalistic flavor to his writing, giving many of his works a distinct sense of place Steinbeck moved briefly to New York City, but soon returned home to California to begin his career as a writer Most of his earlier work dealt with subjects familiar to him from his formative years An exception was his first novel Cup of Gold which concerns the pirate Henry Morgan, whose adventures had captured Steinbeck s imagination as a child.In his subsequent novels, Steinbeck found a authentic voice by drawing upon direct memories of his life in California Later he used real historical conditions and events in the first half of 20th century America, which he had experienced first hand as a reporter Steinbeck often populated his stories with struggling characters his works examined the lives of the working class and migrant workers during the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression His later body of work reflected his wide range of interests, including marine biology, politics, religion, history, and mythology One of his last published works was Travels with Charley, a travelogue of a road trip he took in 1960 to rediscover America He died in 1968 in New York of a heart attack and his ashes are interred in Salinas.Seventeen of his works, including The Grapes of Wrath 1940 , Cannery Row 1945 , The Pearl 1947 , and East of Eden 1952 , went on to become Hollywood films, and Steinbeck also achieved success as a Hollywood writer, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Story in 1944 for Alfred Hitchcock s Lifeboat.


    Propaganda is a word often spewed in anger or indignation at some form of manipulative or self serving communication It s generally viewed as objectionable, ugly, and immoral Meet the honorable, dignified exception to that stereotype.John Steinbeck s 1942 novel, written to support the Allied effort during WWII, is propaganda as pure as freshly fallen snow, as righteous and moral as love for humanity It is propaganda in affirmation of freedom, self determination, and the indomitable will of peopl [...]

    Short and bitter sweet, The Moon is Down shows what becomes of docile countryfolk when they are invaded and subjugated.Not sure what to expect from this lesser known work by Steinbeck, my first impression after a few pages was that I was in for a light comedy, a sort of Catch 22 anti war declaration, apparently with silly citizens and gullible army officers acting out a daffy pre Hogan s Heroes farce But then it turned serious and dark, and actually hopeful There are small heroes, tiny victories [...]

    John Steinbeck published The Moon is Down in 1942 While not directly naming either Norway or Germany, the reader understands that the setting is Norway during the Nazi German occupation, which began in 1940 Written for easy adaptation to the theater, Steinbeck evokes Ibsen with his play like, scene focused action When the novel was published, Nazi German forces occupied much of Europe and North Africa and the Anglo American and Russian allied forces had yet to check Nazi aggression and expansion [...]

    I must admit that my reading this year has been all over the place some philosophical works, some Balzac, some classics, some indie titles, some surrealism so when I reached for this unknown to me Steinbeck, I had no idea whether I was going to like it or not But alas, it is Steinbeck Despite being rather short, this book delivers much food for thought Looking at the GR database, many readers have labeled this book as propaganda apparently, it was written as such Yet, I cannot label it the same [...]

    Well before the United States entered World War II, John Steinbeck became involved in several government intelligence and information agencies because he wanted to fight fascism By September 1941 Steinbeck decided that he would write a work of fiction using what he had learned from European refugees about the psychological effects of occupation on people living in countries which had come under Nazi control This novella is the result Set in a village in an unnamed country, it focuses on the expe [...]

    By 10 45 it was all over The town was occupied, the defenders defeated, and the war was finished Not quite In Steinbeck s 1942 story of a small unnamed town invaded by an unnamed enemy, the war was far from finished The book begins with an almost farcical tone the mayor needs to have his ear hairs trimmed before his meeting with the conquering colonel, the ratfink mole who s been informing on the townsfolk seems surprised that he should not continue to live amongst them, and one of the soldiers [...]

    Loved it and very nearly rated it as a 5 Written ostensibly as intelligent propaganda for the allies in WWII and from reading the afterword in the edition I read, it was seemingly massively effective and influential in that context across many occupied countries Whilst being criticised as being over simplistic, I feel the book stands extremely well indeed as a novel in its own right simply written and with such clarity, it goes to the heart of the human experience and is all the powerful for do [...]

    Free men cannot start a war, but once it is started, they can fight on in defeat Herd men, followers of a leader, cannot do that, and so it is always the herd men who win battles and the free men who win wars.Such a thing is war where a haze creeps over our minds, a foggy mist of confusion that dilutes the outline of real versus unreal Then some words are put together on makeshift pieces of paper to form a book that gets circulated stealthily and the strength is delivered A strength which is unq [...]

    Scritto nel 1942 quando l esito della seconda grande guerra era ancora lontano e non si erano ancora fatte le ponderate considerazioni sulle diverse linee comportamentali seguite dai vari paesi interessati allo scontro, La Luna tramontata una lucida analisi della differenza fondamentale tra il libero arbitrio, tra la pretesa alla scelta di un popolo libero noi abbiamo tante teste quanta gente siamo e in momenti di necessit i capi sbucano fuori tra noi come funghi pag 113 che pu decidere di conti [...]

    I read this in one night when I flopped drunk on my friend s girlfriend s couch after a night around the bars It s so timely as to be telepathic.One character literally remarks, regarding the town his troops are occupying, how he is puzzled that there were no flowers or candy thrown at the soldiers who liberated them, as everyone had promised they would.I mean, Come On, how can that not blow your mind, just a little bit It was written as Allied propaganda during WW2 explicity at the request of t [...]

    I went through most of my life not knowing that The Moon is Down even existed I haven t been the most fervent fan of John Steinbeck, so that could be the explanation, but in all the classes I ve been in, in all the discussions of Steinbeck s work or dicussions of stories of WWII, I ve never heard of this book When I stumbled upon it in my local used book shop I couldn t help wondering why it was new to me I figured it must just be a terrible book, unworthy of attention, a rare Steinbeck failure, [...]

    This little novella was written in 1942 as a work of propaganda to assist the Allied war effort At the time Steinbeck came under some criticism for portraying the Germans the conquerors were not actually identified as German in the book itself too sympathetically, in contrast to the virulent and crude propaganda that tried to demonize them After the war, the work was universally praised when it became apparent that it had greatly encouraged the resistance in Nazi occupied countries The novella [...]

    This is filled with ironic humor Line after line after line Or is my brain twisted Isn t it kind of funny that the value of propaganda, which is what this was when it was originally written in 1942, all depends on which side you stand Propaganda is usually seen as bad literature Not here This is the first time I have read propaganda that gets its message across through humor, and it is good Here is a little background information enpedia wiki The_Moon On completion I thoroughly enjoy the ironica [...]

    This was a quick little bit of agitprop from one of my favorite authors It s short and reads a lot like a play apparently by design and has an interesting history But I wasn t very invested until the very end The simple reminder that herd men win battles but independent minded people win wars is a helpful and hopeful one to remember.

    Steinbeck wrote this novel in support of the occupied territories of Europe during WWII The novel centers on the invasion of an unnamed Northern European country like Norway by unnamed conquerors like the Germans , and reads almost like a play In fact, it was later adapted for the theater by Steinbeck himself Its atmosphere of staunch socio political defiance reminded me of Ibsen s An Enemy of the People It s not perfect the setting and some of the conversations could have been better, especiall [...]

    S , te ne sei ricordato Il debito sar pagato Apparentemente una storia semplice, in realt in poche pagine e con dialoghi essenziali Steinbeck, attraverso le figure indimenticabili del sindaco Orden e del dottor Winter, ci impartisce una splendida lezione di dignit e integrit morale.Una storia di resistenza, ispirata ad un fatto realmente accaduto in Norvegia durante la seconda guerra mondiale, che mette un intero paese invaso dal nemico nazista, si intuisce anche se non detto esplicitamente di f [...]

    This is the first obscure John Steinbeck I ve read and it wasn t on my radar until a week ago This is totally out of Steinbeck s typical wheelhouse of the working class in California during the 1930s This book was used as propaganda in the Second World War and the Nazis threatened to and probably did kill people who were found with copies of this book It was copied in secret and garnered some criticism for making the invaders human I found this book fascinating It s set up as a cautionary tale t [...]
