steinbeck is a master of fluid prose hisis a master of fluid prose His effortlessly flow from one character to the next from a city setting to the farming communities settled among the hills and valleys He visits hard working farmers devoted wives immigrants traveling hobos and passionate gardeners A cast of characters one would encounter without giving them much thought Yet each one of them has an inner turmoil at times subtle and at time prominent that adds a different dimension to each and every one of them This dimension weaves in and out of the narrative and can be overlooked nless the reader pays attention Steinbeck s prose flows and flows like a smooth stream where the rocks beneath the surface are hardly perceptible yet you are fully aware of their existence if you keep your eyes open And these rocks the dirty secrets and dark thoughts of the characters are what makes this collection worth reading Unlike in our contemporary works where violence instability and inner turmoil are in your face to the point of dominating the story Steinbeck s portrayal is subtle and almost nonchalant It reuires an active participation of the reader
as do most intelligent works recommended for fansdo most intelligent works Recommended for fans Steinbeck and for those who appreciate fine timeless writing I have to re examine my own writing every time I read a Steinbeck novel My trite phrasing and flat descriptions look like gly stepchildren next to his princely prose Even this slim volume of four lesser known short stories is packed with some beautifully powerful writin.

I ve read about half of this collection before in various places And I would agree that the best stories in The Long Valley are those which have been heavily anthologized But reading them again in the context of the whole collection was surprisingly enjoyable Here you get a wide range of Steinbeck s tone with a single theme throughout violenceAs with all collections some stories were weaker than others In particular I wasn t a fan of The Murder a story which seemingly justifies the abuse of a wife Having never seen Steinbeck as a raging misogynist I chalk this story p to an objective portrayal of the culture at the time Other stories in this collection may imply I m wrong however We ll leave it at thatCertainly Steinbeck was primarily a novelist He wasn Several excellent stories including the exceptional Johnny Bear The Long Valley was published in 1938 The majority of its stories had previously appeared in various American magazines The stories themselves Saint Katy the Virgin being the exception a strangely whimsical tale set in mediaeval France are set in Steinbeck s birthplace the background for so much of his writing the Salinas Valley in California Apparently Steinbeck demanded that Saint Katy the Virgin be included in the collection and although I enjoyed it I have to admit that it does seem a bit of a puzzle alongside the rest In all the other stories Steinbeck does what Steinbeck can do like no other informs s about the human condition He ses symbolism to good effect and his descriptive imagery is admirably lean sometimes a tale s starkness certainly left this reader with a haunted almost desperate feeling However I never feel that Steinbeck is ever being wantonly bleak Above all Steinbeck is telling s stories about human beings and of their relationships to others He lets Happy Halloween from the Montgomerys (With Me in Seattle, us make our own inferences The scholars critics and academics have it seems from the very start often been divided on their appraisal of these stories I m perfectly happy to let them go on arguing This collection is eminently readable and worthwhile I came to John Steinbeck s The Long Valley in the heels of his excellent novella The Moon is Down Not having read any of Steinbeck s writing for years there was just something soothing about his prose that made me reach for another work of his I must say that I was not disappointed The Long Valley is a collection of ten short stories publi.
