About To Get Left Behind

| Learning | May 31, 2013

(I’m in an upper-level English course about early 20th century literature. Our professor is explaining how the political leanings of certain authors influenced their work.)

Professor: “…and since Hemingway was quite a lefty, you can see how that shows in the wording of this story…”

(He continues with the lecture and one student raises his hand. A few minutes later the professor calls on him.)

Student: “I still don’t understand what being left-handed has to do with his political views!”
