In addition to that, if his son gets schooled, then it means he will be able to read and also open books, Coyotito will also know and it is through him that they will also get informed.
These wishes reveal the fact that humans are always searching and yearning for big and better things and are never satisfied by what they have.
The last desire is that of buying proper clothing for himself, his son Coyotito and his wife Juana.
With the money from the pearl, Kino will be able to spend well on his family’s need for proper clothes making them look like the Westerners.
He thus envisions himself in felt hat that is new, his wife in a skirt and shoes that are also new, and finally his son Coyotito in a new American sailor outfit. Kino clearly associates riches and nice new clothes with the European and American culture rather than that of his own. ‘The Pearl’ by John Steinbeck is one of the most powerful books that sensitively portray the fickle nature of human relationship which thrives on greed and ambition.
The story is set against the background of abject poverty where dreams are luxuries that are lost in the struggle for daily survival.However, in the ends she sees that this is an......s School Topic The Pearl – John Steinbeck The book, “The Pearl” which almost every one of us reads at least once at school, is written by John Steinbeck who is known for his allegorical writings targeting capitalism and the evils it carries along (Hawker 2012).This book isn’t any different in the essence, as in this allegorical piece as well; the author has managed to maintain his socialist reputation.The Pearl I do agree with Steinbeck’s preface that there can only be good and bad things and black and white things and good and evil things and no in-between anywhere.This is the true depiction of human nature which is always at loggerheads and thus cannot be fully be said to be harboring good and bad thoughts and ideas simultaneously.The protagonist of the story, Elisa, has a life that is defined by its lack of intimacy.She is married, but she and her husband are stiffly associated, their communications built upon a formality that keeps a barrier between them.The five things Kino wishes to do with the money from the Pearl include; a proper marriage for him and his wife in church, a harpoon, a rifle, proper clothing for his family and sending his son Coyotito to school so that he can become schooled.They are important to Kino because by wedding properly in church, his respect will increase in the community and his wife will be happy.The author explores the diversity of human nature through the protagonist and his interaction with people after he finds the most ‘coveted’ pearl.The book delves into the lives of the poor who are endlessly exploited by the establishment.
