  • A new reading of an old text in Eastern Europe : John Steinbeck's In Dubious Battle
    Čerče, Danica
    Although rich in artistry and depth, Steinbeck's novel In Dubious Battle (1936) has been judged less as a novel and more as a sociological event or a propagandistic political tract. At least ... contemporary critics are inclined to treat the book as a legitimate work of art, to be approached from a variety ofthe usual aesthetic and theoretical angles. However, no matter which lens InDubious Battle is viewed through, it is certainly a mistake to attribute the novel's enduring appeal and value to its depiction of a migrant apple pickers' strike typical of the 1930s. In its concern with the human dilemmas regarding the nature of power, personal freedom, and degree of responsibility and commitment, it is as powerful today as it was when it was written.
