Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The class is thoroughly enjoyable, and Mrs. Lamere makes learning more fun than any other professor. The class can be difficult, but the professor helps you to fully understand the purpose and meaning behind it all.
From this course, I gained a full understanding of the three eras of literature: Romantic, Victorian, and Modern. Personally, I fell in love quickly with the Victorian Era. With writers such as Oscar Wilde, the satirical and ironic way of writing displayed helped to show just how corrupt the social classes were. This class gave me a full understanding and appreciation for English Literature.

Advice for students:
When taking this course it is important to read the stories. Many people in my class just skipped the reading part and studied the handouts, and their grade suffered because of it. It is a literature class and you have to read the material. There is no question about it. Also, the PowerPoints Mrs. Lamere makes are extremely helpful as well. Once you have read the story, I feel you should go back and review over the PowerPoint for additional information about the author and the story.
