A Beautiful Tribute: Google Illustrates Some of Steinbeck's Monumental Works

by Daphne 2

Perhaps no novel opens more powerfully than John Steinbeck's Cannery Row: "Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream."

Steinbeck delicately drags the reader into the visceral, tactile, and palpable worlds of his Depression era characters. We smell and taste and spit out life with them.

Today Google doodled some of Steinbeck's monumental works in celebration of his birthday. The illustrated slides, featuring quotes from the depicted novels, are a bold and beautiful tribute to a cherished American author. Hats off Google- gorgeously executed.
