Summary: East of Eden

East of Eden

John Steinbeck, 1952
Famous for: More riffs on the story of Cain and Abel than you ever thought possible.

OK, so East of Eden is about the struggle between good and evil, but it’s about something else, too. In fact, all 600-plus pages of East of Eden come down to one little word: Choice. Choice is central to the novel’s action and “choice”—or rather, “timshel,” the Hebrew word for choice—is even the last spoken word in the entire book. Jenny has more in this Recap.
