Make use of what you have learned from both the readings and the lectures. Please do not be afraid of writing too much. Your paper should be 3-5 pages typed with a reasonable font and margins.
1. Please write a brief review of In Dubious Battle. Did you enjoy it? What, if anything, did you like the most? Was there anything that you found especially objectionable? Would you recommend this book for future classes?
Next analyze the story. Based on your reading of the story, please discuss the following issues. Who was your favorite character and why did you like him or her? Who were the winners of the “dubious” battle? Who lost out? Be sure to defend your opinions. Using what you know from the textbook and from lectures do you think that Steinbeck accurately portrays the problems of labor relations in California? WHY were conditions among agricultural workers the way they were?
