Reactions to Herman Melville's Bartelby, the Scrivener

I am interested in that are there any connections between Bartelby's actions and maybe effects of the ginger nut to this constant, "I would prefer not to" attitude? Herman Melville

Hrm, never actually thought of that??? But then again I didn't really think too much of Ginger Nut's character other than the pre-concieved notions I have of snotty little 12 yr olds. ;)

Ginger nuts are hot and spicy according to the story....Bartleby wasn't. Maybe he is a foil to the nuts....maybe he is just nuts. Haha :)

Can we have ginger nuts in class someday? I think it would be great research.
