East of Eden

Set in the rich farmland of California's Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families - the Trasks and the Hamiltons - whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel. Adam Trask came to California from the East to farm and raise his family on the new, rich land. But the birth of his twins, Cal and Aron, brings his wife to the brink of madness, and Adam is left alone to raise his boys to manhood. One boy thrives, nurtured by the love of all those around him; the other grows up in loneliness, enveloped by a mysterious darkness. A masterpiece of Steinbeck's later years, East of Eden is a powerful and vastly ambitious novel that is at once a family saga and a modern retelling of the Book of Genesis.

  • "Half brothers Adam and Charles Trask share a mysterious devotion, as well as an intense rivalry. When the lovely but immoral Cathy Ames enters their lives. Adam mistakes her beauty for goodness and marries her. But Cathy soon commits adultery with Charles, bears twin sons, and eventually deserts husband, children and lover to take up residence in a brothel. The twin boys grow up believing their mother had died in childbirth. Like their father and uncle, Caleb and Aaron compete with and depend on each other. Caleb falls in love with Aaron's fiancee, but desperately tries to suppress his feelings. Then on the ever of World War I, Caleb discovers the truth about their mother. At first he wants to protect the weaker Aaron from this knowledge, but later, in anger, Caleb uses it as a weapon against his brother. In the end - like the Bible's Cain who is his spiritual progenitor - Caleb must travel an awful path of retribution, and possible atonement, for his evil."@en

  • "East of Eden is a novel by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck, published in September 1952. Often described as Steinbeck's most ambitious novel, East of Eden brings to life the intricate details of two families, the Trasks and the Hamiltons, and their interwoven stories. The novel was originally addressed to Steinbeck's young sons, Thom and John (then six and a half and four and a half respectively). Steinbeck wanted to describe the Salinas Valley for them in detail: the sights, sounds, smells, and colors. The Hamilton family in the novel is said to be based on the real-life family of Samuel Hamilton, Steinbeck's maternal grandfather. A young John Steinbeck also appears briefly in the novel as a minor character. According to his last wife Elaine, he considered this to be a requiem for himself -- his greatest novel ever. Steinbeck stated about East of Eden: "It has everything in it I have been able to learn about my craft or profession in all these years." He further claimed: "I think everything else I have written has been, in a sense, practice for this.""@en

Von eben jener Cathy, die ihren Mann und die neugeborenen Zwillinge verlässt, um sich ihren Lebensunterhalt in einem Bordell zu verdienen.

A strange and original work of art."--New York Times Book Review."
  • "East of Eden is a novel that is explicitly biblical in its scope, centering on the patriarchal figure of Adam Trask, and his uneasy relationship with his twin sons and their scandalous mother. This epic family saga, chronicling the turbulent ambitions and desires of the Trasks and their neighbors in California's fertile Salinas Valley, is characterized by one fundamental theme: the need for a personal choice between good and evil. Much of the historical background and some of the colorful events in the narrative are based on John Steinbeck's own memories and the recollections of his forebears in the region. But the vital protagonists -- the dominating Adam, the favored Aron, the tormented Cal -- and the fascinating cast of supporting characters, including maidens and whores, Chinese servants and scions of pioneer stock, are the fruit of Steinbeck's own imaginative genius and his love for the land of his birth. - Jacket flap."@en
