Please enter each question separately. There is too much hear for one space. I'll take your first one here. If we are talking within the context of "The Pearl" Steinbeck uses Kino as both strength and weakness in a man. Kino is physically strong. He is determined to help his family and is pacified by his wife Juana, baby and the rhythms of simple life. When these natural rhythms are disturbed, when he finds the Pear, everything that once made him strong begins to cloud his mind, his qualities begin to work against him.
