Verarmte Landarbeiter finden in Oklahoma kein Auskommen mehr. Da hören sie vom gelobten Land Kalifornien und machen sich durch Hitze und Staub auf den Weg. Doch auch hier erfahren sie die Macht und Unterdrückung durch die Großgrundbesitzer. John Steinbeck hat mit diesem Buch seinen literarischen Ruhm begründet. Das Echo in Amerika war bei der Veröffentlichung gewaltig - Gegenschriften wurden verfasst, Politiker und Erzbischöfe verdammten es, der Autor wurde als Volksverhetzer und Klassenkämpfer verurteilt - und als Stimme der Unterdrückten und Ausgebeuteten gefeiert. Sein Roman, der auf ausführlichen Recherchen beruhte, wurde zur Basis von soziologischen Untersuchungen und diente als Vorlage für den gleichnamigen Film von John Ford. 1940 erhielt Steinbeck den Pulitzer-Preis, 1962 den Nobelpreis für Literatur.

Sind Ubersetzer(innen) nicht uberhaupt oft genug so etwas wie engelhafte Vermittler?" (Jung, DIE ZEIT. 11.08.2005.) In solchen und ahnlich subjektiven, unprazisen Bewertungen erschopft sich die heute gangigste Form der Ubersetzungskritik', die man in Buchrezensionen ubersetzer Werke findet. Meist handelt es sich um eine reine Zieltextkritik, die ohne Bezug auf den Ausgangstext und ohne ausreichende Kenntnis des Ubersetzungsvorgangs entstanden ist. In den 1970-er Jahren bildeten sich in der Ubersetzungswissenschaft erste ubersetzungskritische Modelle heraus, die im Hinblick auf Bewertungskriterien und Methodik jedoch durchaus variieren (Snell-Hornby 373). Weitreichend anwendbar, umfassend und detailliert ist der Ansatz von Katharina Reiss. Auf Grundlage ihres Modells, doch unter Berucksichtigung weiterer Modelle, soll in der vorliegenden Hausarbeit die deutsche Ubersetzung von John Steinbecks analysiert werden. Der praktischen Ubersetzungskritik gehen einige theoretische Uberlegungen voraus. Hintergrundinformationen zu Aut"

The Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression, a book that galvanized—and sometimes outraged—millions of readers. First published in 1939, Steinbeck’s Pulitzer Prize-winning epic of the Great Depression chronicles the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads—driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California. Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into Haves and Have-Nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity. A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America. At once a naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s powerful landmark novel is perhaps the most American of American Classics. This Centennial edition, specially designed to commemorate one hundred years of Steinbeck, features french flaps and deckle-edged pages. For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1-, Heinrich-Heine-Universitat Dusseldorf (Anglistik / Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Proseminar "American West, California," Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Im Rahmen dieser Arbeit wird ein Textausschnitt aus John Steinbecks "The Grapes of Wrath" analysiert, von Seite 227 bis Seite 245 aus der spater zitierten Ausgabe. The Grapes of Wrath ist hauptsachlich die Geschichte der Joad Familie, die in der Zeit der Great Depression von der Bank von ihrem Land in Oklahoma vertrieben wird und eine beschwerliche Reise auf sich nimmt, um im fruchtbaren Kalifornien ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Im gewahlten Ausschnitt uberqueren die Joads die Mojave Wuste - Granma Joad stirbt auf dieser Reise, ihr Tod hat aber eine zwiespaltige Funktion, denn einerseits hatte ihr Tod verhindern konnen, dass die Joads an der Kontrollstation passieren durfen, andererseits aber hilft sie der Familie passieren zu durfen, dank Mas nuchternem Verhalten. Die Kontrolleure denken namlich, die alte Frau sei sehr krank und verzichten darauf, den Truck der Joads zu durchsuchen. Die Beschreibung der Natur nimmt in der Arbeit einen wichtigen Stellenwert ein - die Autorin erlautert, wie Steinbeck gewisse Stimmungen hervorruft und auch wie die Naturbeschreibung die Gefuhle der Personen widerspiegelt. Ebenfalls wichtig ist die Art und Weise, wie andere Menschen uber die Familie urteilen. Dies wird am Verhalten der Tankwarte deutlich, die die Joads als "gorillas" bezeichnen und denken, sie seien zu dumm, um eine Gefahr darin zu erkennen, in einem alten Truck die Wuste durchqueren zu wollen. Diese Sichtweise zeigt nicht nur die Meinung der Tankwarte, sondern steht pars pro toto fur die allgemeine Einstellung Wanderarbeitern gegenuber. Ein weiterer Punkt, auf den ich eingehen werde, sind die zahlreichen Parallelen zu der Bibel - der Titel allein lasst schon religiosen Inhalt vermuten.

John Steinbeck wrote The Grapes of Wrath during an astonishing burst of activity between June and October of 1938. Throughout the time he was creating his greatest work, Steinbeck faithfully kept a journal revealing his arduous journey toward its completion. The journal, like the novel it chronicles, tells a tale of dramatic proportions—of dogged determination and inspiration, yet also of paranoia, self-doubt, and obstacles. It records in intimate detail the conception and genesis of The Grapes of Wrath and its huge though controversial success. It is a unique and penetrating portrait of an emblematic American writer creating an essential American masterpiece.

Lesson Plan from the year 2010 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, University of Marburg (Anglistik), course: Second Language Acquisition, language: English, abstract: 1. General Overview The Hessian Curriculum(1) demands that the English lesson in the Oberstufe has to improve the pupils' language skills as well as enlarge their knowledge about English literature and different cultures. Correspondingly, the pupils should gain experiences with a variety of texts and different media. By this, they develop critical media literacy which is an essential prerequisite for working independently. Ideally, these main objectives should be combined in every teaching unit. The novel The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck was published in 1939. It reports the story of the farmer family Joad which has, like hundred thousands of other families, to leave their home Oklahoma to start a new life in California. By this, Steinbeck exemplifies the fate of migrant workers in the USA during the 1930's. The novel should be motivating for the pupils as it constitutes an authentic documentation of the social circumstances during the time of the Great Depression.(2) Furthermore, the dramatic story of the family Joad is gripping and arouses empathy. The novel, moreover, refers to central topics, like work ethnic and inequality, which can be connected to the current problems of globalization. In The Grapes of Wrath Steinbeck makes use of the migrants' authentic language. That is why the reading might be a challenge for the pupils. Besides, Steinbeck's literary techniques are note-worthy. He, for instance, adds so-called intercalary chapters, which evaluate the plot and provide further information on the historical context. Moreover, the controversy(3) of the novel led to various reactions of artists and film adaptations. So the novel is an appropriate starting point for the comparison of different media, like for instance songs, photographs and film adaptations. Corresponding

When it was initially published in 1939, John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath instantly became a bestseller. Like many phenomenally popular works, it has elicited a wide range of critical responses. Some critics have attacked Steinbeck for his alleged sentimentalism, while others have praised him for writing a great American epic. While modern critics have generally responded positively toward his novel, they have done so at a time when its place in the American literary canon is increasingly uncertain. Through reviews, previously published essays, and original material, this volume records the critical reception of The Grapes of Wrath up to the recent editions of the 1990s. The volume additionally includes a chronology, bibliography, and extensive introductory essay.
