1. This is a novel about a place. It’s even named for it. In a way, Cannery Row is a character all on its own. Think about all the different ways John Steinbeck characterizes Cannery Row in the intro and chapters 1-4. Note 3 specific passages that you feel introduce either Cannery Row, or a specific setting within Cannery Row, particularly well. Talk about each passage individually, and why it illustrates a strong introduction and/or description of Cannery Row. What kinds of descriptions does Steinbeck use in each passage, and what messages does each passage send about Cannery Row?(Think of this question as preliminary research: Soon, you’ll be writing your own introduction and description of a particular place.)
