The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Grapes of Wrath:

The humanity of abject poverty.

My favorite John Steinbeck quote from the book:

"When a majority of people are hungry and cold, they will take by force what they need."

Questions I pondered while reading The Grapes of Wrath:

Are there more opportunities for the poor now?

Are the poor still as dehumanized?

My review of The Grapes of Wrath:

People shouldn't go hungry.

Wages should be fair.

It is wrong to take advantage of your employees.
