  1. I’m actually a Jeffersian, mildly curious about Steinbeck.

    • Thanks for your comment, Bill. You raise a great point. The poetry of Robinson Jeffers deeply affected Steinbeck when he and Carol lived in Pacific Grove as part of the Carmel-Monterey arts scene and Steinbeck was working on “The Pastures of Heaven” and “To a God Unknown,” both of which show how deeply Jeffers influenced the fiction writer. Robert DeMott, a senior Steinbeck scholar, has written much about both figures. Look for our upcoming article about Bob’s book “Steinbeck’s Typewriter.”
