    Kindle american classics.co ´ The Long Valley eBook ☆ The Long ePUB × long kindle, valley mobile, The Long kindle, The Long Valley PDF/EPUBI have to re examine my own writing every time I read a Steinbeck novel My trite phrasing and flat descriptions look like ugly stepchildren next to his princely prose Even this slim volume of four lesser known short stories is packed with some beautifully powerful writing The scenes are spare in their breadth but not in their ability to reach into your heart and imagination HOLD THE PRESSESI

    Kindle american classics.co ´ The Long Valley eBook ☆ The Long ePUB × long kindle, valley mobile, The Long kindle, The Long Valley PDF/EPUBI'm not a big fan of short stories but the stories in this collection are as well crafted as Steinbeck's longer fiction The characters settings and plots are authentic with the exception of a strange story about a pig which I just didn't get The stories deal with among other things the aftermath of a lynching suppressed dreams a husband in a literal and figurative harness a misguided and doomed view of manhood a brutal crime of passion and a young boy just getting to know some of the harsher sides of life I particularly liked The White uail The C

    Kindle american classics.co ´ The Long Valley eBook ☆ The Long ePUB × long kindle, valley mobile, The Long kindle, The Long Valley PDF/EPUBThe Long Valley was published in 1938 The majority of its stories had previously appeared in various American magazines The stories themselves Saint Katy the Virgin being the exception a strangely whimsical tale set in mediaeval France are set in Steinbeck’s birthplace the background for so much of his writing the Salinas Valley in California Apparently Steinbeck demanded that Saint Katy the Virgin be included in the collection and although I enjoyed it I have to admit that it does seem a bit of a puzzle alongside the rest In all the other stories Steinbeck does what Steinbeck can do like no other informs us about the human condition He uses symbolism to good effect and his descriptive imagery is admirably lean; sometimes a tale’s starkness certainly left this reader with a haunted almost desperate feeling However I never feel that Steinbeck is ever being wantonly bleak Above all Steinbeck is telling us stories about human beings and of their relationships to others He
