"One of Steinbeck's most taught works, The Pearl is the story of the Mexican diver Kino, whose discovery of a magnificent pearl from the Gulf beds means the promise of a better life for his impoverished family. His dream blinds him to the greed and suspicions the pearl arouses in him and his neighbors, and even his loving wife Juana cannot temper his obsession or stem the events leading to tragedy. This classic novella from Nobel Prize-winner John Steinbeck examines the fallacy of the American dream, and illustrates the fall from innocence experienced by people who believe that wealth erases all problems"-- Provided by publisher.
Al igual que su padre y su abuelo, Kino es un humilde pescador que recoge las perlas de los mantos del Golfo que alguna vez significaron enormes riquezas para los reyes de España y que ahora proveen a Kino, Juana y su pequeño hijo de un magro sustento. Un día como cualquier otro, Kino regresa a la superficie con una perla tan grande como un huevo de gaviota, tan "perfecta como la luna." La perla trae consigo la esperanza, así como la promesa del bienestar y la seguridad.
