"The Pearl" by John Steinbeck

The Pearl is a famous novella by John Steinbeck. Published in 1947, it is the story of a poor pearl diver, Kino, who finds a valuable pearl and is convinced that his life will change. The story explores man's nature as well as greed and evil. 

Steinbeck's inspiration was a Mexican folk tale. Here is an abridged version of the story for B1 students. (Extract taken from Opportunities Pre-Intermediate, Longman)

    1. Hello Polina. You can find the abridged version in the Longman Opportunities Pre-Intermediate coursebook. I do not own the copy right. I just made a video version of it.
