6 Pages, Grade: 1

Abstract or Introduction

US-American writer John Steinbeck was 66 years old when he passed away on 20 December 1968. His death in New York bereaved Americans of a prominent citizen and readers of a literary master. Throughout his productive career, he had produced best-selling fiction and had worked as a dramatist, journalist, scenarist, and essayist. His most popular novels, novellas, and short stories had become standard reads of modern American fiction and had been turned into successful Hollywood films. In recognition of his outstanding achievements as an author, he had been awarded the most prestigious prizes available in the world of literature: the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1940 and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1962.
