    Throughout the novel of Cannery Row written by John Steinbeck, the theme of community becomes prevalent in the little town of Cannery Row. The book takes place in coastal California during depression era. Each individual character faces many challenges, some which were the result of the depression, others are personal fears that consume the character. The community as a whole learns to accept one another’s peculiarities and relies greatly on one another. Friendships in Cannery Row are essential for the survival of the residence especially concerning Steinbeck’s main character Doc. Doc, is loved and respected by the entire town but yet appears to be depressed throughout most of the novel. He is described to be a complicated yet simple man. For example he is afraid of getting his head wet but his profession being a marine biologist requires him to capture marine animals in the ocean. The entire town knows this odd fact about Doc but does not berate him for it. Doc being a well-educated man would seem to be out of place in a town like Cannery Row but instead he finds comfort and appreciates the town for accepting the reality of their lives. Doc also finds himself playing a crucial role in the town due to the fact that he is a well-educated man. Although he is not a doctor the people in the town look upon him for medical purposes and his astute advice. Steinbeck writes that although he is a friendly man he still isolates himself (Steinbeck 475). Doc attempts to fill the void by…

    Truman is better off making the choice to leave the constructed reality because he deserves a life just like any other human being. Christof taking Truman when he was a baby and putting him in this constructed reality was cruel and out of his decision.
