“Anything that just costs money is cheap” - Steinbeck

Buon pomeriggio, lettori 🤗 Tra gli acquisti che ho fatto ultimamente c’è anche “Uomini e topi” di J. Steinbeck 📚 Di questo libro ne ho sempre sentito parlar bene ma ancora non mi sono decisa a leggerlo ☺️ L’ho messo anche in #tbr per questo mese e spero di riuscire a rimediare al più presto! Per chi non lo conoscesse lascio qui sotto la trama 👇🏻 ————————————— La storia di unamicizia profonda tra due uomini, due braccianti stagionali in California che condividono un sogno. George Milton si occupa da sempre con ferma dolcezza di Lennie Small, un gigante con il cuore e la mente di un bambino. Il loro progetto, mentre vagano di ranch in ranch, è trovare un posto tutto per loro a Hill Country, dove la terra costa poco: un posto piccolo, giusto qualche acro da coltivare, e poi qualche pollo, maiali, conigli. Ma le loro speranze, come i migliori progetti predisposti da uomini e topi (è un verso di Burns), sono destinate a sbriciolarsi. Il ritratto di unAmerica soffocata dalla crisi e di unumanità gretta e gelosa nella drammatica rappresentazione di un maestro della letteratura. ————————————— Voi l’avete letto? Se sì, ditemi perché vi è piaciuto 🤓 . . . #libro #libri #libridaleggere #book #letturatime #lettrice #letteratura #readinglife #ioleggoperché #librichepassione #libraccio #leggerechepassione #instareading #stoleggendo #divorolibri #ilpiaceredileggere #comprolibri #lamialibreria #bookblogger #uominietopi #steinbeck #bompiani

Great and precious things are lonely #Steinbeck #eastofeden #quotes

One travel book writer @gennyallison thinks you should read and why 📖 In his 1962 novel Travels with Charley, In Search of America, John Steinbeck takes an extended road trip across America in the hopes of rediscovering his country and its people...While being entertaining and enlightening, this book is also self-reflexive, and confronts the set of assumptions and biases any writer brings to their subject. I think this is important to remember anywhere you travel: that your impressions have been filtered through a lens, not a window. #sonderandtell

Im not sure if he was so excited for classics that his jaw dropped, or he thinks that they are boring! * * These are the classics that I plan on getting to next year. Fingers crossed since classics are intimidating as heck to start. Also, I apologise for so many Oscar pictures! He likes to hang out with me when Im taking photos and I always love the ones with him in! Will try to get back to just books for awhile. Check out his page @oscar_woodfluff if you want more! * * * * * #book #books #booklove #booknerd #bookworm #bookish #bookporn #bookphoto #bookphotography #booklover #bookstagram #bibliophile #read #reader #reading #tbr #classics #austen #bronte #steinbeck #kitten #gingerkitten #catstagram #yawn #shelfie #igreads #instareads #igbooks #instabooks

Grazie ai viaggi in treno sto riuscendo a leggere tanto come piace a me. E anche se non lho ancora finito tutto sicuramente mi sono fatta unidea. Cè un motivo per cui questo libro nel 1962 è valso un Nobel. Direi anche più duno. Nonostante un inizio che mi stava facendo desistere, poi mi ha coinvolto. Un classico è un libro sempre attuale che continua ad avere qualcosa da raccontare. E direi che oggi, alla luce delle cronache, questo libro dovremmo leggerlo per riflettere. . . #book #books #bookreading #steinbeck #nobelprize #lecterature #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaddiction #bookporn #bookgasm #instabook #bookgram #bookstagram #bookpic #bookstagrammer #booklover #bookaholic #bookoftheday #booklove #booknerd #booklife #bookhaul #booktime #bookofinstagram #igers_roma #igers #igerslazio #igeritalia . . Im travelling a lot by train in these days so i can read as much as I like. Now i havent finished yet this book but there are defintely many reasons because it won a Nobel prize in 1962. A classic lecterature book is a book that never ends to say something, and today we have to read this book to understand what happen around us about work matter and migration matter.

A summer read... (Book 30 for me since Jan. 1. My Good Reads Challenge goal is 52 books by Dec. 31.) The Long Valley is a collection of masterful short stories about ordinary people baring their souls and hearts, rich in detail and insight. Steinbeck (1902-1968) first published this work in 1938, right after “Of Mice and Men”. It set a path for his greatest work The Grapes of Wrath”. Just read the first story in this collection, a yellowing paperback reprinted in 1986 by Penguin Books, one I rescued this summer at the Library’s sale of unwanted books. Artwork shown here is an original oil by my cousin, the old rural road like so many traveled by Steinbeck from New York to California’s Salinas Valley, where he was born. (Roads are integral to many of Steinbeck’s stories and to characters within his stories.). For me, Steinbeck is to fiction as Frost is to poetry. The two men live about the same time and both wrote with an honest lyricism that spoke to and still points one to some truth or another, big or just a little something one can relate to. #steinbeckcountry #steinbeck #goodreadschallenge

Camus asks whether innocence, the moment it becomes involved in action, can avoid committing murder. Steinbeck thinks not: In my little experience, the end is never very different in nature from the means #thotsbelike #myboi #steinbeck #camus #fireside #books!

When Americans in the east first saw images of this place, they didn’t believe they could be real. Established as a National Park in 1919, the word is now out. Here we hike by some cacti and look back into the Zion Canyon.

Day 7 of 7 of the Favorite Book Challenge: Anything by John Steinbeck 📗📘📙 Yes, I know this is cheating again. I put off having to choose a Steinbeck book until the last day because I couldnt pick just one. Although I do especially love the retelling of Arthurian legends that my brother @kenrickvezina discovered and gifted me. 📗📘📙 I nominate @flux_katpacitor to take the challenge! #theholygrail #kingarthur #arthurianlegend #bookstagram #bookchallenge #favoritebookchallenge #favoritebooks #johnsteinbeck #theactsofkingarthurandhisnobleknights #eastofeden #sweetthursday #thepearl #steinbeck #reading #books

Citizen 13669 by Mine Okubo was great. Okubo grew up in Riverside, went to Poly High Scool, RCC, then Berkley. Mine Okubo draws and writes about her experience in Japanese American internment camps. Steinbecks King Arthur is amazing but fizzles out after the halfway mark. Steinbecks Sweet Thursday is a great short novel, returning to the story of Cannery Row. Mark Trains Tom Sawyer is a great book, with great perception of human spirit and childhood. #johnsteinbeck #mineokubo #marktwain #citizen13660 #theactsofkingarthurandhisnobleknights #sweetthursday #theadventuresoftomsawyer #books #Steinbeck #okubo #twain #goodreads #goodbooks #riversidecalifornia #riverside #riversidecitycollege

🌳 | Cennetin Doğusu-John Steinbeck | #okudumbitti . . Arkadaşlar gerçekten muhteşem bir kitap okudum. Hayatımda gerek karakterleriyle gerek anlatmak istediğiyle unutamayacağım bir kitap oldu. Zaten Steinbeck’in tasvirleriyle anlatış tarzına ben bayılıyorum. Kalınlığından korkup sakın okumakta tereddüt etmeyin. O kadar akıcı ki.. . . 👉 Kitabın konusuna gelirsek: İyilik ve kötülük. Hayatımızın temelindeki iki kavram. Steinbeck kuşaklara yayarak bunu irdeliyor. Kötülük bir yazgı mı yoksa iyiliğe ulaşmada bir aracı mı? Hükmedebilirsin.. Seçebilirsin. İyi yada kötü olacağına sen karar verebilirsin. . . . 👌 “Bugün kadar yazdıklarım, bu kitap için bir hazırlık niteliğindeydi.” diyor Steinbeck. Ne demek istediğini çok iyi anladım. Hemen okuyacaklar listenizin en başına taşıyın bu kitabı. Ciddi söylüyorum 🖐💐 -Sümeyye ______________________________________________________ #books #bookstagram #instagood #instafollow #followmeback #selyayıncılık #kitapkurdu #kitapaşkı #kitaptavsiyesi #johnsteinbeck #steinbeck #amerikanedebiyatı #cennetindoğusu #akademikultur

Herkese merhabaa. Bugün bir #currentlyreading ile karşınızdayım. Başlarda kitaba karşı nedense önyargılıydım ama herkes çok beğenince ben de bir okuyayım bakalım dedim. Bu benim Jhon Steinbeck’ten okuduğum ilk kitap. Ama son da olamayacak çünkü yazarın dili çok akıcı ve kitap da ilgi çekici ilerliyor. Ama zamanım olmadığından kitap 3-4 gündür elimde sürünüyor orası ayrı. Kitaptaki betimlemelere bayıldığımı da söylemeliyim. Jhon Steinbeck karakterleri ve olayı öyle güzel tasvir etmiş ki kendimi olayın içinde hissettim. Kitabı henüz bitirmediğim için yorumum bu kadar. Sonunu hiç tahmin edemiyorum umarım güzel biter. #Kitapalıntısı “İnsan olmak kolay değildir, hele ki ‘insanca’ yaşanabilecek bir toplum düzeni yoksa!” “İnsanın yüreğinin iyi olması için akla ihtiyacı yoktur. Zaten bu ikisi pek birlikte olmuyor gibi.” “Kimsesi yoksa delirir insan. Kim olduğu hiç önemli değildir, yeter ki yanında biri olsun. İnan bana, insan fazla yalnız kaldı mı, hastalanır.” #okuyorum #jhonsteinbeck #farelerveinsanlar #kitapönerileri #kitapönerisi #bookstagram #selyayıncılık #steinbeck #bookshelf #kitapkurdu #kitapyorumu

One of my favourite novels, on The List. Link in bio. - “But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not. “✊🏻

Reading with Bowie: East of Eden by John Steinbeck . I read East of Eden shortly after moving to California. Maybe it was because I had also left the east coast for the west – although a much less arduous journey – or maybe it was because when I lived there the drought was an ever-present, apocalyptic-seeming concern, but East of Eden and the epic story of the Trask and the Hamilton families resonated with me. And in my very humble opinion, this is one of the greatest novels of all time. Steinbeck said it was the most difficult work he had written, but that he poured into it all the things he had wanted to write all his life. . It is a story of good and evil, pride and greed, love and betrayal, and survival. It is also the story of brothers. First Adam and Charles and then Adam’s twins Aron and Caleb and their mother Cathy. And as the narrator says: “A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?” . Whats the greatest” novel youve read?

To a God Unknown is a novel by John Steinbeck. I like having a book that it took Steinbeck nearly five years to write. I often feel he is brash in the way he untangles lifes complexities. #bookstagram #books #bookshelf #bookworm #bookish #bookclub #bookstagram #reading #steinbeck #book

The entire stretch of the hike down into Bryce Canyon was filled with views that made you need to stop and take it all in. We then set up tents at nearby Kodachrome State Park last night to avoid the masses as Bryce is a very popular park - but the same lesson we have repeatedly learned at other parks this summer has held true. No matter how crowded the park, the trails are always mostly empty. Utah also has the added bonus of little to no ambient light anywhere in the wild - which means absolutely incredible stargazing late at night, @mrwebbpv.

Over 4,300 miles into our road trip - took this while hiking down into Bryce Canyon yesterday... you can see the winding trail we were heading down on the right.

Fareler ve İnsanlar | Kitap Yorumu 🐁 Puan : 5/5 George ve Lennie. Biri ufak tefek ve çevik. Aynı zamanda zeki. Diğeri ise onun tam tersi. Uzun boylu, geniş omuzlu ve yarım akıllı. İkisi de çiftçikte çalışıyorlar ama bir işte uzun süre kalamıyorlar. Çiftlikten çiftliğe birlikte yolculuk ediyorlar. George bu yolculuk sırasında akılsız ama olağanüstü masum arkadaşını korumak için uğraşıyor. Lennienin bir de tuhaf bir huyu var. Fareleri alıp okşamak. 🐀 Birgün yolları kilometrelerce uzaktaki bir çiftliğe düşüyor ve oradaki maceralarını okuyoruz. 🐁 George ve Lennie nin bir hayali var. Hikayeleşmiş bir hayal. Bizim gibiler, çiftlikte çalışan erkekler yeryüzündeki en yanlız erkeklerdir. Onların aileleri yoktur. Kendilerini hiçbir yere ait hissetmezler. Bir çiftlikte çalışır, para kazanırlar. Kasabaya gider kazandıklarını hemen harcarlar. Bir de bakarsın ki yeniden yola düşmüşler. Başka bir çiftliğin kapısını çalmak için. Büyük bir sebze bahçemiz ve bir kümes dolusu tavşanlarımız olacak tabii... 🐭 insanın yüreğinin iyi olması için akla ihtiyaç yoktur 💐 Fotoğraf için @kitapsimulasyonu na çok teşekkür ederim 😊. #fareler #ve #insanlar #farelerveinsanlar #farelerveinsanlarkitapyorumu #farelerveinsanlarkitap #sel #yayıncılık #selyayincilik #selyayıncılık #kitap #kitapyorumu #kitapsevgisi #klasikler #klasik #john #steinbeck #johnsteinbeck #meb100temeleser #mebyüztemeleser #fare #book #bookstagram

... از متن کتاب «جورج» و «لنی» دو کارگرِ کوچنده‌اند. یکی زبر و زرنگ و «حامی‌خصلت» است و دیگری بسیار زورمند اما سبک مغز و در نتیجه خطرناک. این کتاب، داستانِ روابط آن‌ها با هم است در کشاکش با قهرِ تقدیر. داستان این حرمان زمانی پایان می‌پذیرد که گزند توان جسمی لنی عاقبت از اختیار بیرون می‌شود و دستِ سرنوشت، رؤیای مشتاقان را در هم می‌مالد «جان استاین‌بک» رؤیای لنی را برای به دست آوردن یک وجب زمین و آب و مِلکی مختصر و خرگوش‌هایی که نازشان کند، خوابِ پریشانِ یک دیوانه نمی‌داند؛ آن را تمایل و حق همگی انسان‌ها وصف می‌کند به امن و آسایش در اِزای کار و نیز احتیاج به ابرازِ محبت. او می‌خواهد داستان‌های خود را با این امید رنگین و نورانی کند که همه‌ی مردم روزی در دنیایی زندگی کنند که عدالت و برادری در آن حاکم باشد. او می‌خواهد در دلِ راه‌ماندگان، جسارت مقاومت برانگیزد خوشبینیِ «استاین‌بک» بر ایمان او به انسان و نیروی سازنده‌ی امید و رؤیا استوار است. او در تعریفِ رسالت خود می‌گوید: «اگر دو نفر بکوشند که در دلِ هم راه یابند و احساسات هم را درک کنند، نسبت به یکدیگر مهربان خواهند شد و به هم کمک خواهند کرد. کوشش در تفاهم، هرگز به کینه نمی‌انجامد بلکه همیشه به جانب عشق راهبر است» _______ پانوشت: اعتراف می‌کنم که از سبک «ناتورالیسم» چیزی نخوانده‌ام. وقتی خواندن «موش‌ها و آدم‌ها» اثر جان استاین‌بک آغازیدن گرفت، گمان می‌کردم همچون آثاری که پیش از این، مطالعه کرده‌ام بر پایه‌ی «رئالیسم» استوار شده اما انتهای داستان مرا بدجور غافلگیر کرد؛ زیرا به قول مترجم کتاب جناب آقای «سروش حبیبی» اشخاص داستان‌های استاین‌بک اغلب نمی‌توانند از پیامدهای ارثی و شرایط محیطی خود خلاصی یابند خواندنِ این کتاب و یادداشت پایانی‌اش را به دوستان عزیزم پیشنهاد می‌کنم؛ چه گفته‌اند ادبیات و به‌طور کلی هنر و هرآنچه تحت عنوان علوم انسانی می‌شناسیم از ما انسان‌های بهتری می‌سازد، ما را با ارزش‌ها و مسائلی آشنا می‌کند که آدمی با آن‌ها روبه‌روست و در نهایت به ما یاری می‌دهد وضعیت انسان را درک کنیم _____ #موشها_و_آدمها #جان_استاین_بک #ترجمه_سروش_حبیبی #نشر_ماهی #ناتورالیسم #book #of_mice_and_men #steinbeck
