Reviewer: ShareKhoo - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - Aug Subject: Accurate depiction of the Chinese culture. Historical fiction at its best. Doesn't feel like fiction at : The Good Earth (), a poignant tale of a Chinese peasant and his slave-wife and their struggle upward, was a best seller.

The book, which won a Pulitzer Prize (), established Buck as an interpreter of the East to the West and was adapted for. After O-lan gives birth to a daughter, a terrible famine settles on the land. In the midst of this crisis, O-lan gives birth to another daughter.

By contrast, poor people throughout The Good Earth must suffer not only the burdens of frugality but also a sense of diminished status in the eyes of their neighbors. The differences between Wang Lung’s trips to the House of Hwang thus introduce Buck’s idea that money is not merely a means of acquiring objects: It is a ticket to power and.

To better understand The Good Earth, a brief review of the history of China at that time that the story takes place would be the overthrow of the Ching Dynasty of the Manchus in by Sun Yat-sen and other dedicated intellectuals who envisioned a united and democratic nation, developments did not go quite as well as the leaders had hoped.

The Good Earth derives its title from the author's conviction that a connection to and reverence for the earth can actually lead to inner goodness and peace, and that a disconnection from nature can only result in a lack of fulfillment. Buck presents human beings as transitory, with the earth as the only constant.5/5.

" The Good Earth has style, power, coherence and a pervasive sense of dramatic reality." (New York Times Book Review) "To read this story of Wang Lung is to be slowly and deeply purified; and when the last page is finished it is as if some significant part of one's own days were over." (Bookman).

The Good Earth simultaneously manages to be both a classic and not very good. This is not, I trust, a controversial statement: Pearl Buck’s novel suffered a mixed reputation from the many early readers hailed her work for its realistic descriptions of life in the Chinese countryside, critics derided The Good Earth as saccharine and simplistic.

The Good Earth is a classic book about life in rural China and the challenges that rural farmers face. Sons and A House Divided continue the story of the family through the next generations, as they face challenges of moving to town and then city, going abroad for education, and then returning home/5.
