Water?(Academic Article)

| | Comments (0)
Reading through this article I was quite confused most of the time.  I understand the connections author David Cassuto is making between the novel's themes and water.  However, I'm not sure I understand what most of them really have to do with the Grapes of Wrath.  When I read the Grapes of Wrath, I took one of the main themes to be about the American Dream and the family's struggle to be successful.  I did not find water to be a theme, but to be something more symbolic.  I did draw from the article the many Biblical themes Cassuto mentioned, which were related to the Bible, such as the baptism and the flood.
