John Steinbeck: I am a Revolutionary

A Response in Le Figaro

In 1954 John Steinbeck wrote a piece for Le Figaro, called ‘I Am a Revolutionary’, as a response to an article that claimed he was not a revolutionary.

Steinbeck writes:

“ I hasten to inform both the extreme right and that pseudo right which calls itself left that they are both wrong. I am a very dangerous revolutionary.
