English teacher: In this poem, D. H. Lawrence makes use of the literary character of the snake, and he is quite obviously making references to the snake that we encounter so early as in the story of Adam and Eve, which we find in… which book? Which book, Sophie?

English teacher: Oh, sure you do, Sophie, come on now. The story of Adam and Eve? Which book?
Student: (panicking) I don’t know! Pick someone else!
