Celebrating the all-too-brief life of a young scholar dedicated to
Steinbeck studies, A John Steinbeck Reader: Essays in Honor of
Stephen K. George gathers essays from various vantage points
including aesthetic, feminist, ethical, and comparative
perspectives. Under the direction of Barbara A. Heavilin, George's
coeditor of The Steinbeck Review journal and the book, John
Steinbeck and His Contemporaries, the authors of these articles
have come together both to pay tribute to Stephen and to widen the
range of Steinbeck scholarship. Included in this volume are works
by two acclaimed poets, as well as insightful readings of a little
known early short story and an unsuccessful novel by Steinbeck. In
addition to George, who is represented here with an essay on
societal ethics, and Heavilin, who writes about Travels with
Charley, the contributors to this volume include: Mary Brown,
Danica Cerce, Mimi Gladstein, Charlotte Hadella, Tetsumaro Hayashi,
Luchen Li, Michael J. Meyer, Kyoshi Nakayama, Brian Railsback, Thom
Satterlee, Stephen L. Tanner, and John H. Timmerman. Designed for
both a general and a professional audience, this collection will
delight the Steinbeck buff, enlighten the Steinbeck student, and
provides an array of topics, views, and approaches for Steinbeck
scholars and teachers. While acknowledging one of its most devoted
scholars, A John Steinbeck Reader will also be a welcome addition
to the wealth of Steinbeck studies.
