Annotation

Compares the leftist political ideology espoused in each novel, summing up the lengthy critical debate over whether the novel’s central themes support collectivism or individualism. Contends that these proletarian works served as each author’s reaction to the Great Depression, and that while they engage the era, they also evade it, reflecting their ambivalent feelings on the subject.
