Good Earth (Buck) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews 
The Good Earth has fulfilled [the promise of Pearl S. Buck's first book] with a brilliance which passes one's most optimistic expectations.... It is an excellent novel [with] style, power, coherence and a pervasive sense of dramatic reality. In its deeper implications it is less a comment upon life in China than upon the meaning and tragedy of live as it is lived in any age in any quarter of the globe.
New York Times (3/15/1931)


To read this story of Wang Lung is to be slowly and deeply purified; and when the last page is finished it is as if some significant part of one's own days were over.
