內容簡介


「我似乎永遠在寫這本書。我一輩子都在寫這本書。早期的作品只是習作:準備寫這本書的習作。也就是這個緣故,我要這本書寫得好,因為它是居於首位的。」《伊甸園東》確實是史坦貝克所有作品中最具份量的一本書。一九六三年諾貝爾文學獎的褒獎文充讚揚他的作品:「既寫實且富於想像力,同時兼具社會性的洞察力與幽默。」作家的責任乃是對人生的提昇、擴展與鼓勵,他的思想是瘸子的柱杖,愚頑者的諍友,弱者的力量以及懦者的勇氣。《伊甸園東》是史坦貝克文學生命的頂點,就世界文學史而言,亦將佔一席之地。

California's fertile Salinas Valley is home to two families whose destinies are fruitfully, and fatally, intertwined. Over the generations, between the beginning of the twentieth century and the end of the First World War, the Trasks and the Hamiltons will helplessly replay the fall of Adam and Eve and the murderous rivalry of Cain and Abel.

East of Eden was considered by Steinbeck to be his magnum opus, and its epic scope and memorable characters, exploring universal themes of love and identity, ensure it remains one of America's most enduring novels.
