Allee, Mark Briffault, and John Elof Boodin. Ricketts’ lab provides an intellectual and social haven for the young writer that is critical to Steinbeck’s development and eventual success. ” 1931 Spends much of the year in poverty in Pacific Grove, lacking money to travel much, but puts together a short story cycle he has been working at for over a year: The Pastures of Heaven. Steinbeck moves to the agency of McIntosh & Otis—his literary agents for the rest of his life. 1932 The Pastures of Heaven is published by Brewer, Warren, and Putnam in October (the publisher soon goes bankrupt).

The point in each case is that what happens, happens: things work themselves out according to their nature, not according to what we would like to see happen. Such biological determinism is quite foreign to the literary sensibility, but a factor we should never forget while reading Steinbeck is that he saw life in a different way from most of us. At Stanford, although technically an English major, he took the classes in history, philosophy, and writing that interested him, without any concern for a degree.

Steinbeck writes a series of articles for the San Francisco News (published together in an expanded version as Their Blood Is Strong in 1938). His research into the labor problem is leading him toward his first “big book”: The Grapes of Wrath. 1937 1938 Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck’s first experiment in the “play-novelette” (a novella that might be easily adapted to a play), is a great success commercially and in the reviews. With Carol, Steinbeck makes his first trip to Europe (once again traveling the seas by freighter), visiting Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and the Soviet Union.
