THE PEARL by John Steinbeck is the retelling of a story about a fisherman who finds a huge pearl, realizes that the discovery is destroying his life and returns the pearl to the seA. It is told in a style so authentic that readers feel they are hearing the story from one of the villagers who know all the characters. In spite of its simplicity; however, there are several levels to enjoy in THE PEARL.
Some critics have pointed out that the author showed his great respect for the natural environment, and that this book was really his statement about the dangers of creating serious damage to it. When the fisherman throws the pearl back into the sea, he is doing something useful in his effort to prevent the habitat destruction. In fact, Steinbeck was a member of an expedition to explore marine life along the coast of California when he heard the story of the “pearl of the world”.
