Theme 1: East of Eden 's Golden Oldie.

East of Eden

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

Are you getting the idea that East of Eden is all about the oldest conflict in history—in other words, the struggle between good and evil? Yep. That’s Steinbeck’s main theme in East of Eden. This Recap has more on the way that struggle affects the Trask family, and what, if anything, Steinbeck proposes as a way to end that struggle.
