The Pearl is a novella by John Steinbeck, first published in 1947. The story is set in a small fishing village in Mexico and follows the journey of a poor pearl diver named Kino, who finds a valuable pearl that he hopes will transform his life.

As Kino becomes increasingly obsessed with the pearl's potential wealth and power, he and his family are drawn into a web of greed, violence, and corruption that threatens to destroy them. The story explores themes of poverty, wealth, power, and the corrupting influence of materialism.

The Pearl has been widely read and studied for its powerful social commentary, vivid characters, and evocative prose. The novella remains a classic workof American literature, and it is considered one of Steinbeck's most important works.


"For it is said that humans are never satisfied, that you give them one thing and they want something more. And this is said in disparagement, whereas it is one of the greatest talents the species has and one that has made it superior to animals that are satisfied with what they have."

"This was an evil beyond thinking. The killing of a man was not so evil as the killing of a boat. For a boat does not have sons, and a boat cannot protect itself, and a wounded boat does not heal."
