Fox Byte 5775 #46: Eikev (Because)

Since the first stage production of Of Mice and Men in 1937, the play has gripped audiences and readers for its deep and disturbing probe into human nature.  It has also spawned innumerable parodies and references in popular culture that have diluted the power of the piece.
