Song of the Pearl
This song "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beatles is an accurate representation of Steinbeck's The Pearl, Song of the Pearl because it accurately represents the feeling behind the song. In "Here Comes the Sun" The Beatles sings Little darling, Its been a long cold lonely winter, Little darling, It seems like years since its been here (The Beatles).This example reflects a similar idea in The Song of the Pearl because we can equate the feeling of finding pearl to the feelings the rising sun brings. Both Songs also provide the literary device of symbolism. In The Pearl's Song of the Sea Steinbeck, In the surface of the great pearl he could see dreams form(Steinbeck 26). This is an example of symbolism because he is making the pearl so much more than just a pearl it is symbolizing his ticket to a way out of poverty. Similarly in "Here Comes the Sun" The Beatles sings Little darling ,I see the ice is slowly melting, Little darling, It seems like years since its been clear (The Beatles). This is also an example of symbolism because it makes the sun seem as if it is the key to happiness in this song. Both "songs" accurately convey the feeling of happiness and a silver lining.
Song of Evil
This song "You're a Mean One Mr.Grinch" by Thurl Ravenscroft is an accurate representation of Steinbeck's The Pearl, Song of Evil because it accurately represents the forces of evil against the family . In "You're a Mean One Mr.Grinch" Thurl Ravenscroft sings You're a monster Mr. Grinch, Your Hearts an empty hole, Your brain is full of spiders (Ravenscroft).This example reflects a similar idea in The Song of Evil because we hear all of these comparisons similar to the way in which Steinbeck uses physical beings to be his song of evil. Both Songs also provide the literary device of imagery. In The Pearl's Song of the Evil Steinbeck, He could hear Juana whispering the old music and he could hear the evil music of the enemy. Kino's hand went forward very slowly very smoothly. The thorned tail jerked upright..(Steinbeck 7). This is an example of imagery because he is very clearly describing . Similarly in "You're a Mean One Mr.Grinch" Thurl Ravenscroft sings You really are a heel You're as cuddly as a cactus You're as charming as an eel You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel (Ravenscroft). This is also an example of imagery because it clearly describes his person and hoe revolting he is . Both "songs" accurately represent and describe what they are meant to describe with detail and figurative language.
This song "L-O-V-E" by Nat King Cole is an accurate representation of Steinbeck's The Pearl, Song of the family because it accurately represents the love of him and his family and how much he relies on them. In
"L-O-V-E" Nat King Cole sings V is very, very extraordinary E is even more than anyone that you adore can (Nat King Cole).This example reflects a similar idea in The Song of the Family because we can see evidence of the simple and pure love that is found in both songs. Both Songs also provide the literary device of figurative language. In The Pearl's Song of the Family Steinbeck, Juana sang softly an ancient song of three notes yet endless intervals. All of it made up the song of the family. (Steinbeck 4). This is an example of figurative language because he is vividly describing it with clear and descriptive language. Similarly in "L-O-V-E" Nat King Cole sings "E is even more than anyone that you adore" (Cole).This is also an example of figurative language because it states his love and uses an abundance of cliches. Both "songs" accurately depict the close family ties that Juana and Kino have.

The song "Dream A Little Dream of Me" by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong is a fantastic representation of my Song of Happiness becuause it is a simple melody that sounds pleasant and rich. In "Dream A Little Dream of Me" Fitzgerald and Armstrong sings "When I'm alone and blue as can be dream a little dream of me(Armstrong and Fitzgerald)" This example is significant because it reminds me that whenever I feel sad here is always someone to care for me. Whenever I hear this song a nostalgic feeling comes over me and I feel a little bit happier."
