The Pearl by John Steinbeck is the story of an intrepid man named
Kino and the dilemma that he goes through when he finds a pearl. For the
diver Kino, finding a magnificent pearl means the promise of a better life
for his impoverished family. This dream blinds him with a greed and
initiates the events leading to a terrible tragedy. Stieinbeck’s theme for this
book is to not let greed overtake you.
Kino’s family suffered much hardship before they found the pearl.
All he ever wanted was to be rich and live the great life, watch his baby grow
up and learn to read the books. “My son will read and open the books, and
he will write and he will know the writing.” When Kino find the pearl…
“his emotion broke over him.” He now found the one thing that would
make him happy. He believed that since he had a pearl he could have all

son. Eventhough the death of his son was very traumatic for Kino, he and
Juana traveled back to his village and threw the pearl back into the sea.
