  • Cal Closer To His Father
    627 words
    Essay #3 Literary Analysis Writing Seminar March 20, 2000 Throughout the novel East of Eden, John Steinbeck constructs his characters in such a way that they appear to have enormous depth. Steinbeck creates his characters so that it is impossible for the reader to label or stereotype his characters. Steinbeck continually toys with the idea of whether Caleb can restrain his evil or if the evil is totally beyond his control. I believe that there are instances in the book that illustrate the idea c...

  • News Channel The Audience
    1,856 words
