The Grapes of Wrath

Can you please share your opinion on this book and use examples from the book?

Most people say The Grapes of Wrath is just depressing the story of rather not read it. I have a theory that is actually an uplifting story about men's drive to live. I want you to either arguing me or support my theory but you must use examples from the book.

You certainly have a point here. Steinbeck's novels tend to be depressing but filled with human spirit and hope. The migrants suffer untold disasters getting kicked off their land and on their way to California. The Joads and other families keep carrying on despite the hardship. There is always a sense of hope beneath the tragedy. Ma Joad keeps the family together despite the horrors they have experienced.
