Always Do the Reading
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class to anyone who is willing to open their minds and learn about the effects that profound literature and writing can have over readers. From existentialism to the powers of true love, the topics learned through the books we read always kept the students interested. With our wonderful teacher who knew to have fun with her students and enjoyable discussions/debates, this class was truly memorable.
The main highlight of this course was the teacher. Her enthusiasm to teach and recount stories was infectious. She was always open to suggestions and willing to listen to other opinions. She was extremely approachable and paid close attention to everyone in need. Another highlight of the course were the discussions/debates about anything from whether Hamlet truly was mad, and whether Charles Darnay or Sydney Carton was the protagonist of A Tale of Two Cities, to how absurd and enjoyable Catch-22 was. I learned a lot about what made a piece of literature or poetry stand the test of time, including existentialism and the interconnected pieces of information (either seemingly major or minor) in a novel that will "blow" your mind.

Advice for students:
To succeed in this class is very simple. Always do you work and don't be afraid to participate in class ( which should not be a problem since the teacher and the material make for an enjoyable experience). DO NOT PROCRASTINATE. Procrastinating on the homework in this class will eventually overwhelm you and affect your grade. Make an effort to actually read the novels as you can expect to be quizzed on them (or you will be asked a question in front of the rest of the class). Be open and have a good time.
