Pretty easy, overall.
I really recommend this course because it is interesting to study different pieces of literature around the world and analyze them with an unbiased view point. You ge to read classic literary works from different time periods.
Studying literature is like being a psychologist, sociologist, and historian all in one. You are required to analyze a literary work with unbiased views and apply critical thinkng skills to every piece of literature that you analyze. Psychological and sociological principles can be applied to pretty much all types of literature. As I was reading works such "Gilgames," "The Arabian Nights," and "The Odyssey" it gave me a history lesson of the time period, region, culture, people, and religion.
