About. The Good Earth. To better understand The Good Earth, a brief review of the history of China at that time that the story takes place would be helpful. After the overthrow of the Ching Dynasty of the Manchus in by Sun Yat-sen and other dedicated intellectuals who envisioned a united and democratic nation, developments did not go quite as well as the leaders had hoped.

The Good Earth follows the life of Wang Lung from his beginnings as an impoverished peasant to his eventual position as a prosperous landowner.

He is aided immeasurably by his equally humble wife, O-Lan, with whom he shares a devotion to the land, to duty, and to survival.

The Good Earth derives its title from the author's conviction that a connection to and reverence for the earth can actually lead to inner goodness and peace, and that a disconnection from nature can only result in a lack of fulfillment.

Buck presents human beings as transitory, with the earth as the only constant.5/5.
