John Steinbeck: Life Of An American
?When I face the desolate impossibility of writing 500 pages, a sick sense of failure falls on me, and I know I can never do it. Then gradually, I write one page and then another. One days works is all I can permit myself to contemplate.? The famous, and sometimes infamous John Steinbeck said this. He, one day at a time, wrote thousands of pages of engaging material for various newspapers, magazines, and his own books. He incorporated various writing styles and portrayed hundreds of different locations in his works, but through it all, he had one theme: injustice. He changed it through many sub themes: Homelessness, migration, poverty, moral responsibility, the underside of the American Dream, and The Common Man. Steinbeck had unlimited empathy for the working class.
