I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate you all for your contributions to today's lecture about Of Mice and Men. You really made the most of it. I'm really proud of you. And remember, now that we've learnt so many things about this wonderful book, it would be a great idea to read it again, don't you agree? Who would have guessed so many things could be said in such a short novel.
Keep up the good work! Almost forgot! Thank you, Elena, for the delicious carrot cake you brought to class this morning. Yummy!
And finally, the song used at the beginning of the lecture, Pastures of Plenty by Woody Guthrie.
Woody Guthrie's biography (and really interesting it is, don't miss it!).
"The note of hope is the only note that can help us or save us from falling to the bottom of the heap of evolution, because, largely, about all a human being is, anyway, is just a hoping machine." - Source: Pastures of Plenty, pg. 247
Bob Dylan's version.
