The grapes of wrath by John Steinbeck this book was published in 1939 and written by the American and California extraordinaire john Steinbeck winner of the national book award Pulitzer and then largely responsible for Steinbeck winning the Nobel prize for literature in 1962 

It's four hundred and fifty-five pages long it features a thing called inter chapters more on that later grape of wrath focuses on one Oklahoma family the jobs during the great depression 

They're forced to move from Oklahoma to California because of the dust bowl and the hurt that is putting on their small family farm

The family is large its three generational but they managed to pile themselves into one car and head out west for the promised land of california what happens next poverty happens 

Grapes of wrath is a realist novel meaning it gets dusty and dirty right alongside its characters but it uses two modes of narration instead of one that's the inner chapter thing 

I was talking about earlier you've got the main story which closely follows the joads in their regular narrative chapters and then quite often you have the inner chapters which zoom way out to this incredible massive narrative distance these chapters are usually shorter and instead of focusing on specific characters they focus on peoples 

They seem historical at times sure but also they're often actually biblical or poetic true to the style of Steinbeck grapes of wrath also a weekly and directly references Christian tradition biblical events and biblical language 

So in short you've got a realist novel that alternates distances between the specific characters and the people in order to simultaneously paint a specific and a general picture of the situation 

So alternates between specific character and place references and the kind of a float unattached biblical language and imagery.
