Abstract

This research has two objectives. The first is to describe the views or perspectives of John Steinbeck toward the effects of materialism in Mexican colonial era depicted in The Pearl. The second is to reveal the way John Steinbeck depicted the phenomena through the literary elements of the novella. This research applies genetic structuralism theory proposed by Lucien Goldmann. The researcher used qualitative analysis. The research’s main data were expressions taken from Steinbeck’s The Pearl. To analyze the data, the researcher used deductive approach. To ensure the trustworthiness of the data, the researcher applied triangulation. The first result of this research is that there are Steinbeck’s worldviews on the effects of materialism that can be explained into three categories. The first one is the trait of possessiveness. It can be defined as the desire to possess someone’s things. The second trait is envy and the third trait is non-generosity. It can be defined as a reluctant feeling to share possession. The second result is that there are three significant literary elements representing Steinbeck worldviews i.e. the character, the plot and the setting.
