    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who loves literature. Though the course is rigorous, it delves deep into the heart of The Romantic Period, The Victorian Era, and The Modern Era. These times periods are extremely important to society and understanding them is a vital part of the American culture. Personally, I loved this course and feel it helped better my knowledge in literature.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, I have learned how society dealt with culture during different time periods. During the Romantic Period, writers learned to rebel and speak out against the norm of society. They learned to express themselves and broke away from the church. They didn't care about being socially accepted, they just needed to express themselves as a whole. Writers such as John Keats and Samuel Taylor Coleridge helped shape this time period. The Victorian Era displayed the beginning of the reformation of the social classes. People stopped the arranged marriages and began to focus more on themselves. For the first time, women began to have more rights and higher social standings. Writers of this time period include Oscar Wilde and Jane Austen. Both of these time periods help to explain how British Literature influenced America as well as how people of today's society.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is not too difficult if you read the material and listen to the professor. Mrs. Lamere does a perfect job of helping students understand just what the writers want the readers to grasp from the stories and poems. The material alone is somewhat hard to get without a little help. Even if one feels the course is too hard, do not give up. There are plenty of outside forces, such as the professor, the book, and the internet, to help you study and fully understand everything you need to know for this course.
