Introduction

We analyzed the first section of the Flight by John Steinbeck. There are two main categories in the introductory section that we had analyzed- the setting and the introduction of characters.

The place Steinbeck described, was of his native region of Monterey Bay Then in the second sentence, Steinbeck tells of a stone mountain behind the farm. ...read more.

Lastly, the setting described by Steinbeck was overall peaceful and nice. This was the mood Steinbeck had developed during the beginning. We're going to talk about the major character character first-Pepe. ...read more.

His mouth was less full than it had been, the lines of the" this paragraph tells the character change in Pepe- how he has grown to be a man.
