Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem a stink a grating noise a quality of light a tone a habit nostalgia a dream I think John Steinbeck summed up the theme for his whole book in the very first sentence of the story Most of the people and things in John Steinbecks novel Cannery Row are not as they seem A lot of characters in Cannery Row have different sides to themselves There are some peculiar things about Cannery Row that only John Steinbeck could clarify There are different sides to most of the characters in Cannery Row Almost all of the characters are lonely however most of them are good at hiding it Like William the first watchman at the bear flag his job was to throw out drunks stop fights and pretty much handling all the dangerous tasks He was look towards as a pimp William was actually a lonely man without a friend in the world He ended up bumping himself off Doc the owner and operator of the Western Biological Laboratory was a rather small man deceptively small Yet he was very strong and known to be fierce when angered Doc was the most intelligent person in the Row yet he still did unintelligent things like drinking while driving Mack and the boys were jobless men who lived in a flophouse and yet Doc looked at them as true philosophers Dora the owner of the Bear Flag restaurant an illegal prostitution type of site was actually a very nice woman who took care of her girls and other residents in Cannery Row by paying their grocery debts Cannery Row in itself isnt really what it seems like either During the day most of the people are at the sardine factory making fish emollition where its extremely loud with the machinery and all At night all the factor workers go away to their shacks and the real people
