Now Tom said "Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air Look for me Mom I'll be there Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a place to stand Or decent job or a helpin' hand Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free Look in their eyes Mom you'll see me." -The ghost of Tom Joad by Bruce Springsteen- . . . . #27PM #elsalvador #draw #drawing #drawings #drawingoftheday #illustration #illustrationartists #art #artist #artista #arte #instaartist #instaartwork #ilustracion #dibujo #creative #creativity   #sketching #sketchbook #watercolor #tomjoad #thegrapesofwrath #springsteen #rageagainstthemachine
“We’re the people—we go on.” April 14, 1939: Viking Press publishes John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath.” If that mythical beast, the great American novel, exists, this is it for the 20th century. Tom and Ma for 80 years. #johnsteinbeck #thegrapesofwrath #tomjoad #books #literature #americanliterature #writing #writer #novel #novelist #vikingpress #thegreatdepression #dustbowl #oklahoma #henryfonda #steinbeck
Ottanta anni fa, oggi, usciva uno dei grandi capolavori del '900, un'opera che fu cronaca tagliente ed epopea di uomini sconfitti, critica feroce ad un momento della storia americana umido di lacrime e sangue di tanti che, come la famiglia Joad, persero tutto e partirono per trovare sé stessi e una vita dalle membra sfilacciate e sottili, alle spalle la polvere letale della Dust Bowl e davanti, come nuovi, ultimi pionieri, il sogno di una California dalle promesse disattese #libreriasapereubik #senigallia #furore #johnsteinbeck #bompiani #tomjoad #lalettura #laletturacorrieredellasera #libri #instalibri #lettori #lettoridiinstagram #books #bookstagram #instabooks #booklovers #igersbook #igerssenigallia
Race hatred cannot stop us, this one thing I know  Poll tax and Jim Crow and greed have got to go  You're bound to lose  You fascists are bound to lose
"TOM" 12" X 24" From a series of portraits inspired by Steinbeck's THE GRAPES OF WRATH. The works aren't necessarily likenesses of their characters namesakes. Rather the works are meant to represent all the collective people in that world Steinbeck created. Haggard, hollow eyed and worn thin, they endured. #art #acrylicpainting #artgallery #painting #collage #mixedmedia #canvas #ghentnorfolk #ghentva #gallerieukwensi #norfolk #visitnorfolk #oilpastel #pastel #steinbeck #grapesofwrath #okie #endure #endurance #tomjoad #joad
#BoundforGlory by #WoodyGuthrie 🚂🎼 I did not realize how fully Woody Guthrie had embraced the "hobo lifestyle" until I read this autobiography. This is a must read for any folk music fan or anyone interested in the dust bowl era. 📙 🔰"There is a stage of hard luck that turns into fun and a stage of poverty that turns into pride and a place in laughing that turns into fight." 🚂🎼 🔛 ☁🌀 🔮🚹 #Okie #Oklahoma #Okemah #folksinger #folksong #songwriter #ballad #autobiography #memoir #TomJoad #bookworm #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #readersofig #bibliophile #bookgeek #igreads #currentlyreading #music #instabook #whatimreading #bookreview #booksuggestion #newread #newbook #booklover
I forgot to say a couple of things about Clayton Gardner III. He’s haunted by ghosts every single night and to fight them he writes, writes, writes... about his life, past and present. Each week he sends his writings to his sister who collects everything. Also Clayton Gardner II, the father, serviced in Europe during WWII. #valleyofsalinas #salinas #claytongardnerIII #johnsteinbeck #tomjoad #johnford #sixstringweapon
Clayton Gardner III, in the Valley of Salinas last week. The life of Clayton was and is still painful after years in Vietnam where his best friend passed away in front of him. Clayton still feels guilty about that. War trauma. The come back was difficult with a lot of physical and moral injuries. After some years in the shadow he lives now on the road. The first thing that he said when we met, under a bridge close to a railroad, was « I’m living like a hobo from the 1930´s ». Half fatalist. Half proud. Clayton is a « Tom Joad ». A real John Ford character. Thanks again for the great gift you offered me. Thanks man. It’s posed on my desk and here to stay. Hope that your phone is loaded. #claytongardnerIII #valleyofsalinas #salinas #johnsteinbeck #steinbeck #tomjoad #johnford #sixstringweapon #artefrance #artetelevision #whatsupfilms
Trivia: His performance as Tom Joad in The Grapes of Wrath (1940) is ranked #51 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time (2006).
Day 21. A song that I like with a persons name in it is The Ghost of Tom Joad by Rage Against the Machine. On their last album before breaking up they released Renegades another great album, and it has a lot of underrated songs like Ghost of Tom Joad. The beat of the song with the rapped lyrics sound so nice together. . . . . . . . . . . #ratm #rageagainstthemachine #renegade #renegades #tomjoad #alternative #alternativemusic #rap #rapmusic #metal #thrashmetal #deathmetal #progmetal #progressivemetal #deathcore #metalcore #blackmetal #blackeneddeathmetal #vikingmetal #folkmetal #brutaldeathmetal #traditionalmetal #rock #classicrock #hardrock #heavymetal #doommetal #stonermetal
Adultos. Mi libro preferido de mi autor favorito. Una obra genial. Entiendo que haya personas a las que les pueda aburrir, porque es un libro lento, cargado con el polvo de los caminos y el traqueteo de las camionetas que cruzaban Estados Unidos durante la gran depresión. Desesperanzador y esperanzador a la vez. Sin embargo, cada tres páginas lees un párrafo que te quita el aliento de lo bonito que es. Es pensar en él y venirme arriba con la prosa poética 😊 (perdonadme los excesos). Cuenta la historia de una familia de granjeros de Oklahoma, que lo pierde todo a raíz del Dust Bowl, y tiene que emigrar a California. Steinbeck lo escribió partiendo de una serie de artículos de cuando era corresponsal, por eso mucha gente se queja de que no tiene estructura de novela. A mí me da igual, me encanta como escribe Steinbeck y hay tanta verdad en el libro, que compensa cualquier fallo en la estructura. Creo que es clave para entender quienes son los culpables y a quién interesa el "efecto llamada". El libro recibió el Pulitzer en 1940. Y mi chico el Nobel en 1962. #steinbeck #tomjoad #lasuvasdelaira #libros #libros #book #books #recomendaciones #recomendacionesliterarias #reseñas #book #books #thegrapesofwrath #johnsteinbeck #bookgrammer #bookstagramer #bookgram #instabook #booklover #novela #lectura #lecturarecomendada #obragenial #altaliteratura
Yesterday afternoon I watched John Ford’s classic 1940 adaptation of John Steinbeck’s ‘The Grapes Of Wrath’, starring a very young Henry Fonda. I watched it with my eight year old daughter and when I asked her if she understood the film, she said “Yes, it’s about family and sticking together when things are hard.” It’s about far more than that of course; Steinbeck was a writer with a deep-seated sense of justice, always expressing empathy for the underdog, and a social conscience that ran through all of his work. The Grapes Of Wrath is about family and it is about sticking together when things are hard, but for Steinbeck, ‘family’ is all of us; not just those nearest to us, not just our own community, but society as a whole. Also, the language is beautifully simple and yet says so much about strength, sadness, suffering, perseverance and dignity. In the book and in the film, the most moving scene is where Tom Joad tells his mother as he prepares to leave her to become a fugitive that wherever she sees injustice and unfairness in the world, that’s when he can be there for her, in her thoughts. More recently, Bruce Springsteen paraphrased Steinbeck’s words in his song The Ghost Of Tom Joad. I hope they resonate for you just as much as they have done for me. ...maybe America can reflect once again on the power of words such as these (and with an eye towards the TV news here today, maybe we can too). @catherinetownsendwords @springsteen #johnsteinbeck #thegrapesofwrath #grapesofwrath #johnford #tomjoad #theghostoftomjoad #injustice #fairness #inequality #socialconscience #socialjustice #brucespringsteen #singersongwriter #lyrics #dustbowl #greatdepression #route66 #blacklivesmatter
Now, a mushy one! :-) An ancient Valentine - Memories of the Mists.... This tale has never been told, perhaps it's the story that never was. Mostly together, but still in bits and pieces, it's strung together at best. Where does one begin amongst the pieces..... to put them back together? To make sense out of memories as fragile as wisps of mist in the morning, gently hung just above the grass, before the light of day has had a chance to erase them from your mind? . I will start this tale, where it was first remembered – in the heart of a woman at a cross roads in her life. Things had been stirred inside her heart almost a year before by a chance meeting with a young man. She could sense his scars invisible to the naked eye, knowing where a break had been or a emotional tear had occurred. In the next days and weeks, the woman found herself having thoughts and feelings she knew belonged to the young man. Unsettling at first, she learned to except them and go on with her life. . Not quite happy, not quite sad, she lived her life. One night, feeling more sorrowful and blue than usual, she went to bed early, on the verge of private, secret tears, that only she knew she cried. She felt her energy shift, she was aware of a heaviness in her chest – something broken there. She became aware of her spirit guides, energetically there. Tears began to seep from her eyes, sprung from her very soul. A pillow, she held tight over her mouth to silence the sobs she let escape into the night. Her chest erupted with the deepest grief she had ever known – in this life or any other in memory. The opening and release of that energy was atomic. As the grief came exploding out, as she experienced the emotional pain, she also remembered the love that was wrapped in the pain – which was more than the pain could hold..... It was unlike any love she had ever experienced before – ever. Some emotion she had hidden and starved beyond her memory, her memories in the Mists. - Mindy. To be continued, some time or other... . . #Valentine #love #lovers #lovestory #memories #ancientmemories #souls #soulsinlove #tomjoad #brokenheart #dreams
GRONA GNIEWU wydane w 1939 roku do dziś są wielką książką. To opowieść o sile jaką posiada człowiek. O tej fizycznej do pracy w polu, domu i tej psychicznej, bo człowiek wiele zniesie. Upokarzany i uzależniony od tych, którzy nazywają siebie większymi. Do samego końca umie znaleźć w sobie wiarę tam, gdzie nikt inny by nie wierzył. Szczególnie jeśli jest to człowiek, który pracuje całe życie ciężko, za marny pieniądz, nieważne czy w deszcz czy w upał. Tacy bohaterowie zostali opisani przez Steinbecka. Silni jak niewielu, a siłę czerpią z przeszłości, od dziada. I teraźniejszości, a więc rodziny zrodzonej na tej samej ziemi, na której będą rodzić się kolejne pokolenia. I umierać. Kraj się rozwija, wszystko prze, nie ogląda się za siebie. Ktoś jednak musi na tym tracić. Rodzina Joadów z Oklahomy zmuszona sytuacją porzuca wszystko co ma i wyrusza do Kalifornii, aby zacząć nowe, lepsze życie. Książka wrzuca nas w ten brudny świat i nie pozwala się oderwać nawet gdybyśmy chcieli. Cieszę się, że dłużej nie zwlekałam. #johnsteinbeck ___________ Nigdzie poza biblioteką nie widziałam tego świetnego wydania z lewej strony. 🔥📚 ___________ #johnsteinbeck #steinbeck #gronagniewu #thegrapesofwrath #books #bookstagrampl #polskibookstagram #polskiebookstagramy #powieść #biblioteka #książki #czytajksiążki #czytamy #takczytam #tomjoad #joad
Il y’a quelques années, j’ai commencé une série d’illustrations inspirées des chansons qui m’ont marquées...celle ci est tirée de la chanson ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’. Je l’ai découverte par le groupe Rage Against the Machine, mais il s’agit d’une reprise de la chanson de Bruce Springsteen. Je vous encourage à l’écouter avec les paroles, en ces jours de contestation populaire et sociale, elle résonne encore fortement à mes oreilles. #illustration #drawing #chineseink #drawings #encredechine #blackwork #tattoo #tomjoad #ghostoftomjoad #ratm #brucespringsteen

One of the greatest novells in American History literature; The Grapes of Wrath. This masterpiece is about the hard life of an American family named Joad after the Great Depression, due to which thousands of people from Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas had to seek for better luck in California. #tomjoad #history #steinbeck #johnsteinbeck #grapesofwrath #literature #novell #geschiedenis #instabook #historical
#BruceSpringsteen #TheGostOfTomJoad . Tom Joad is the protagonist of John Steinbeck's novel "The Grapes of Wrath" (John Ford directed the motion picture version). Tom Joad's life reflects the hardships of emigrants to a promised land "California" after their fields of crops were devastated by the sandstorms that occurred in the 1930s in the center of the United States. This acoustic album is dedicated to this fictional character that represents the suffering of many Ameicans.#johnsteinbeck #TomJoad #TheGrapesOfWrath #Vinyl #Records #espairecords #VinylStore #Sabadell #Catalonia

#Henryfonda in #thegrapesofwrath “Then it don't matter. I'll be all around in the dark - I'll be everywhere. Wherever you can look - wherever there's a fight, so hungry people can eat, I'll be there. Wherever there's a cop beatin' up a guy, I'll be there. I'll be in the way guys yell when they're mad. I'll be in the way kids laugh when they're hungry and they know supper's ready, and when the people are eatin' the stuff they raise and livin' in the houses they build - I'll be there, too.”
#11 The Grapes of Wrath Okay this was definitely the most depressing movie I’ve watched for this project, and possibly ever? The Grapes of Wrath is based off the even more grim novel by John Steinbeck (you know, the guy who wrote the other feelgood novel where a man has to blow his simple friend’s brains out.) It follows Tom and the rest of the Joad family as they flee to California because they lost their Oklahoma farm in the Dust Bowl. The Joads go through an arduous journey halfway across the country, and move between a bunch of terrible work camps and situations. Half of their party either dies or peaces out on them. Tom ends up killing a guy in a fight (seriously, I feel like everyone dies really easily in movies from the 30s and 40s,) has to flee at the end of the movie, and gives his very famous speech that wherever there’s a fight so that hungry people can eat, he’ll be there. To be honest, I’m not sure what the moral of the story is other than to point out that the Depression sucked really bad, and especially so did the law enforcement and tenant farmers in California. It is a fictional story, so it may not be accurate, but the fact that the book was banned in a few places, and that Steinbeck was accused of being a Commie (again, that old chestnut,) suggests that of course it was accurate. A lot of the movies I’ve watched this week have shown me that much of US History is very depressing!
