Rise And Fall of Modern American Society and John Steinbeck’s Literary Female Characters

Maryam Omrany, Kian Pishkar


This study is significant because it provides ways to analyze power from an angle that empowers women. Although. Steinbeck had presented his women characters as sophisticated modern women who are liberated and powerful in leading their lives, the reality in the world still maintains that women are at the secondary position in comparison to men. By altering the presentation of women in literature, the researcher delivers the importance of power in women’s lives as it enables women empower their own lives to a certain extent if not entirely. Hence, the researcher discovers that the knowledge of power is as important as the power of knowledge in women’s lives.
