The pastures of the sky

Twenty families. A small village, in the early 900s, in a fertile valley of central California. And the screenplay of John Steinbeck's first important book, "The pastures of the sky", which was published in the 1932 and translated by Elio Vittorini in the 1940's. It consists of twelve chapters but is not really a novel because to keep together the different events, each concise in itself, of this small masterpiece are not the characters but the setting- the relationship of the peasants with the surrounding nature- and, above a l l, the theme of the mysterious insinuation of evil in a place that to the human eye appears as the deceptive replica of the Garden of Eden.
