Resumen

PEREZ VENEROS, Miriam. Inversion of biblical symbols in The Grapes of Wrath. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2012, n.26, pp. 167-179. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112012000200011.

Although it is agreed that Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath (1939) is full of allusions and symbols connected to the Bible, no consensus has been reached yet about their nature. In this article an analysis is described which aims at demonstrating that the allusions and symbols found are better interpreted as inversions of the traditional biblical symbols, in such a way that the novel can be considered a new 'bible for the people'.

Palabras llave : biblical symbolism; biblical inversions; bible for the people.
