The Pearl jellemzők

When Kino, a poor Mexican pearl-diver, finds a magnificent pearl - 'the Pearl of the World' - he believes that all his dreams can come true. He will marry his wife in the church, wearing fine new clothes; their infant son will never want for anything - least of all the medicine so recently denied to him - and the boy might one day go to school, learn to read and write. But Kino's vision of a bright future blinds him to the greed and fear the pearl arouses in his neighbours and in himself, and his shining dream begins to blacken and twist... John Steinbeck's timeless tale of wealth and the evil it can bring is powerfully illustrated by José Clemente Orozco.
