I'm sure you've heard of this book.

Often touted as one of the "greatest novels of all time" or "books you must read before you die". For some reason, I've been putting it off. But I've been missing out.

Good, Evil, and the Human Soul ThemeTracker

A closer look should have told me that. Because I love family sagas. Epic, multi-generational tales filled with rich characterization and plenty of drama.

The House of the Spirits is a great example. These books really pull me into the characters' lives.

Without that, time would be unarmed against us. Indeed, most of their vices are attempted short cuts to love. All novels, all poetry, are built on the never-ending contest in ourselves of good and evil. And it occurs to me that evil must constantly respawn, while good, while virtue, is immortal. Vice has always a new fresh young face, while virtue is venerable as nothing else in the world is. If you can't see or hear or touch a man, it's best to let him go. I've never been so goddam lonesome in my life.

The weight of knowledge is too great for one mind to absorb. He saw a time when one man would know only one little fragment, but he would know it well.

Maybe, kneeling down to atoms, they're becoming atom-sized in their souls. Maybe a specialist is only a coward, afraid to look out of his little cage. And think what any specialist misses — the whole world over his fence.

They want luxury and they want love and they want admiration. It's a breed — selected out by accident. And so we're overbrave and overfearful — we're kind and cruel as children. We're overfriendly and at the same time fightened of strangers.

We boast and are impressed. We're oversentimental and realistic.

We are mundane and materialistic — and do you know of any other nation that acts for ideals? We eat too much.

We have no taste, no sense of proportion. We throw our energy about like waste. In the old lands they say of us that we go from barbarism to decadence without an intervening culture.

East of Eden (livro)

To put it straight — the very rich are a poor bunch of bastards. In the beginning of East of Eden, before introducing his characters, Steinbeck carefully establishes the setting with a description of the Salinas Valley in Central California. Then he outlines the story of the warmhearted inventor and farmer Samuel Hamilton and his wife Liza, immigrants from Ireland. He describes how they raise their nine children on a rough, infertile piece of land.

As the Hamilton children begin to grow up and leave the nest, a wealthy stranger, Adam Trask, downloads the best ranch in the Valley.

Adam's life is seen in a long, intricate flashback.

We see his tumultuous childhood on a farm in Connecticut and the brutal treatment he endured from his younger but stronger half-brother, Charles. Adam and Charles's father, Cyrus, was a Union Civil War veteran who was wounded in his very first battle and unable or perhaps unwilling to return to service; he nonetheless becomes an expert " armchair general " who uses his intellectual knowledge of military affairs and wounded-veteran status to become a military adviser in Washington, D.

As a young man, Adam spent his time first in the military and then wandering the country. He was caught for vagrancy , escaped from a chain gang , and burgled a store for clothing to use as a disguise. Adam later sends money to the store to pay for the clothes and damage. Charles is torn with fear that Cyrus did not come by the money honestly. A parallel story introduces a girl named Cathy Ames , who grows up in a town not far from the brothers' family farm. Cathy is described as having a "malformed soul"; she is evil and delights in using and destroying people.

She leaves home one evening after setting fire to her family's home, killing both of her parents. She becomes a whoremaster's mistress, but he beats her viciously upon realizing that she is using him and leaves her to die on Adam and Charles's doorstep. Charles sees through Cathy's facade.

Adam falls obsessively and irrationally in love, and marries her. However, unbeknownst to Adam, Cathy seduces Charles at the time of her marriage and falls pregnant with twins, leaving open the question of whether Adam or Charles is the twins' father.

She attempts and fails at a primitive abortion with a knitting needle. Adam — newly wed and newly rich — now arrives in California and settles with the pregnant Cathy in the Salinas Valley, near the Hamilton family ranch.

Cathy neither wants to be a mother nor to stay in California.Wikimedia Commons has media related to East of Eden film. Cal's plan is to make his father's money back, capitalizing on World War I by selling beans grown in the Salinas Valley to nations in Europe, for a considerable premium.

Maybe you've tumbled a world for me. Maybe we all have in us a secret pond where evil and ugly things germinate and grow strong… Might it not be that in the dark pools of some men the evil grows strong enough to wriggle over the fence and swim free?
