The Pearl by JOHN STEINBECK (Hardcover)

R7.50

                                                                  
        

A story based on a Mexican folk tale, The Pearl explores the secrets of man's nature, the darkest depths of evil, and the disastrous effects of stepping out of an established system. Bad things will happen if one abuses his/her spot, according to the Father in the novel.

The doctor refers to Kino's race as animals.

The Pearl itself eventually leads to the devastation of a family. At the outset, Kino envisions a better future the pearl will bring as he wants new clothes for his family and himself, a proper wedding for he and Juana, and a proper education for Coyotito. Before Kino undertakes his plans, friends and relatives of Kino wonder whether it will make or break Kino and his family and people question whether he can achieve these goals because Kino would have to essentially break the rigid social structure.
