Today would be Steinbeck's 112th birthday.

DD saw the Doodle for today, and had to "share" it on her FB page, just for a very special teacher of hers. (who is on my DH's friends list, not DD's-- at least until June when she graduates).

She reminded me that her this AP literature teacher spontaneously told her that she would "forever treasure this moment as a teacher" re: my DD's quip about The Grapes of Wrath. Almost with a straight face, even. LOL.

What observation would that be?

I'm naming the tortoise Nietzsche, because it causes me to question the meaning, and really-- the value, ultimately-- of life itself, as I read.


DD. Not such a fan of the tortoise chapters in GoW. wink But eloquent and biting with her opinion, as usual.

She did admit that Steinbeck's OTHER works are fine. Great, even. Just that this is a particular literary device that she prefers not to be clobbered with repeatedly. wink
