The Grapes of Wrath

The Grapes of Wrath

by John Steinbeck

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG-13

These Joads sure do talk a good talk about getting busy. Lots of references are made to "tomcattin," "billygoatin," and rolling around in the grass. There may or may not be a joke about mating cows. But that's about all.

People who Shmooped this also Shmooped...
