Geography is useful!

| | Comments (0)

The chapter on geography was the first chapter in the book I actually enjoyed reading. I always like learning about symbolism in books and geography always symbolizes something. Also, the talk of geography ties in with The Grapes of Wrath because Steinbeck uses so much detail in describing the geography during the Dust Bowl. On page 166, Foster says "geography is setting, but it also (or can be) physiology, attitude, finance, industry -- anything that place can forge in the people who live there." This statement reigns true in The Grapes of wrath because geography is everything in the book. The description makes us believe that the psychology of the people living in the Dust Bowl would not have been positive because of the drought and everything was turned to dust.
