The Pearl



    Os campos assinalados com * são de preenchimento obrigatório

    For the diver Ki no, finding a magnificent pearl means the promise of a better life for his impoverished family. His dream blinds him to the greed and suspicion the pearl arouses in him and his neighbours, and even his loving wife cannot temper his obsession or stem the events leading to tragedy. For Steinbeck, as Linda Wagner-Martin writes in her introduction, Kino and his wife illustrate the fall from innocence of people who believe that wealth erases all problems.
