Observations and facts
- Rosasharn, real name Rose of Sharon Joad Rivers, is a character in The Grapes of Wrath, a novel by Nobel prize-winning author John Steinbeck, that focuses on a dirt-poor family from Oklahoma, during the Great Depression. She is a childish and dreamy teenage daughter (about 16 or 17) who develops as the novel progresses to become a mature woman. She symbolizes regrowth when she helps the starving stranger. Pregnant in the beginning of the novel, she delivers a stillborn baby, probably as a result of malnutrition. She goes to the point of breast feeding a man too sick to eat solid food.
Trivia and Speculation
- Unlike other witches depicted in the witch encyclopaedia, Rosasharn is shown with her minion instead of a human. This led fans to believe that she once was a minion herself instead of a Puella Magi.
- With the Grapes of Wrath connection, is it possible that she originally contracted due to her family suffering during the Depression?
