    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you enjoy good literature, especially the classics, as well as interpretive history, this is a great course for you. Professor Havard's selection of novels from the British repertoire for this text analysis class is excellent, and the types of analyses are something you'd find in an AP Lit class in high school. However, again, the books are much more critical and vary from three different periods of British history. This fact combined with Havard's very personalized style of lecturing makes for an excellent class; a must if you're an English major, and a great suggestion if you need a writing requirement.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about both about three different periods of British literature and culture through literary analysis, as well as informative lectures. The highlight for me was this integrative style of class, rather than just merely looking at books as individual pieces. Seeing the novels as a part of a holistic culture is both more realistic and interesting an interpretation, and made for a much better class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you like reading, this courses very interesting and a lot of fun. I would suggest that you keep up with his readings as prescribed; there aren't really many quizzes to speak of, so it can be easy to get behind in course work,which can be really indemnifying if it piles up too much. Just realize when considering this course that a love of humanities/reading is a big actor in its overall appeal and your overall pacing, because otherwise I'd imagine the reading could be daunting.
