Read full description of the books Uzun Vadi:Dünya edebiyatının en güçlü kalemlerinden, destansı romanların usta yazarı John Steinbeck bu kez anlatının en zor, en rafine türüne; öyküye yöneliyor. Salinas vadisinin tepelerinden, kanyonlarından, küçük kasabalarından geçerek sıradan insanların küçük, yalın dünyalarından evrensel temalar yaratmayı yine başarıyor.
1930’lar Amerikası’nın hüzünlü ama umutlu, yalnız ama direngen karakterleri; kent ve kır, geçmiş ve gelecek arasındaki çelişkilerle boğuşurken, Steinbeck her zamanki titizliğiyle projeksiyonu yazından çok okura döndürüp, başka tür bir sorgulamaya yöneltiyor. İnsanın yaşadığı coğrafya, zaman ve mekânla ilişkisini incelikli bir biçimde yansıtan öyküler, uzak, farklı ve bir o kadar da benzer dünyaların kapılarını kimi zaman bir çiçek adı, kimi zaman da küçük bir tasvirle açıyor.
Aralarında ödüllü öykülerin bulunduğu, efsanevi Güney Gotiğine de selam duran ve 1938 yılında yayımlanan bu derleme, güncelliğinden hiçbir şey kaybetmeden ilk kez Türkçede…
Read information about the authorJohn 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.
