http://www.60secondrecap.com/study-guide/john-steinbeck-of-mice-and-men-extra-credit/ John Steinbeck clipped the title, "Of Mice and Men," from a passage in the 18th-century poem, "To A Mouse. On Turning Her Up In Her Nest With The Plough" by Scottish poet Robert Burns. Burns, a farmer, wrote "To A Mouse" after he'd disturbed a mouse's hideaway while plowing his field in November of 1785. Here's the passage, from the poem's seventh stanza, in the standard English version: But Mouse, you are not alone, / In proving foresight may be vain: / The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go often askew, / And leaves us nothing but grief and pain, / For promised joy! If you're a purist, here's the same poem's seventh stanza, in Robert Burns original: But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane, / In proving foresight may be vain; / The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men / Gang aft agley, / An'lea'e us nought but grief an' pain, / For promis'd joy!
