Read full description of the books Furore:

Pubblicato nel 1939, "Furore" è subito divenuto il romanzo simbolo della Grande Depressione americana. Nell'odissea della famiglia Joad, in penosa marcia, come migliaia e migliaia di americani, è ripercorsa la storia delle grandi, disperate migrazioni interne, lungo la Highway 66, verso lo sfruttamento, la miseria, la fame: un quadro potente e amaro di una dura Terra promessa dove la manodopera era sfruttata e mal pagata, dove ciascuno portava con sè la propria miseria "come un marchio di infamia".

John Steinbeck (1902-1968) fu insignito del Premio Nobel nel 1962.
"Furore" è anche un film del 1940, diretto da John Ford, con la sceneggiatura scritta dallo stesso Steinbeck, che ha ricevuto due premi oscar nel 1941.
L'American Film Institute l'ha inserito al 24° posto tra i 100 migliori film americani di tutti i tempi.

Read information about the author

Ebook Furore read Online! John Steinbeck III was an American writer. He wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Grapes of Wrath, published in 1939 and the novella Of Mice and Men, published in 1937. In all, he wrote twenty-five books, including sixteen novels, six non-fiction books and several collections of short stories.

In 1962 Steinbeck received the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Steinbeck grew up in the Salinas Valley region of California, a culturally diverse place of rich migratory and immigrant history. This upbringing imparted a regionalistic flavor to his writing, giving many of his works a distinct sense of place.

Steinbeck moved briefly to New York City, but soon returned home to California to begin his career as a writer. Most of his earlier work dealt with subjects familiar to him from his formative years. An exception was his first novel Cup of Gold which concerns the pirate Henry Morgan, whose adventures had captured Steinbeck's imagination as a child.

In his subsequent novels, Steinbeck found a more authentic voice by drawing upon direct memories of his life in California. Later he used real historical conditions and events in the first half of 20th century America, which he had experienced first-hand as a reporter.

Steinbeck often populated his stories with struggling characters; his works examined the lives of the working class and migrant workers during the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression. His later body of work reflected his wide range of interests, including marine biology, politics, religion, history, and mythology.

One of his last published works was Travels with Charley, a travelogue of a road trip he took in 1960 to rediscover America. He died in 1968 in New York of a heart attack and his ashes are interred in Salinas.

Seventeen of his works, including The Grapes of Wrath (1940), Cannery Row (1945), The Pearl (1947), and East of Eden (1952), went on to become Hollywood films, and Steinbeck also achieved success as a Hollywood writer, receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Story in 1944 for Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat.
