Asked in John Steinbeck, The Pearl
How is the story the pearl by john steinback a fable?
The Pearl is not a fable, but it is an allegory, which is a story from which you should learn a life lesson that uses symbolism. It is a allegory because the pearl symbolizes society's greed, which ultimately ruins Kino's life. The implied moral is that one should not be greedy or avaricious but should be happy with his or her life.
