Peter Lisca, who has been studying and extensively eriting about Steinbeck for a quarter of a century, examines not only the exciting changes in the form and content of Steinbeck’s work, but also traces those persistent aspects which make the work at once significant and unique.

In a book-by-book discussion Professor Lisca makes clear Steinbeck’s wide use of myth, legend, and literary sources as structuring decices for his fiction, and of his use of philosophical insights from the natural sciences to achieve an almost mystical understanding of man’s relationship to his felow man, to nature, and to the universe.
