    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The materials to read for the course all were classical masters, Kafka, Joyce, Dante. Really a writers English class, which is what I enjoy because I like masterful challenging writing. A class that's somewhat difficult is never boring.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about a stories impact both on its immediate audience and later generations. We discussed in depth what makes a story "great" and what is "writing". Before the class I always thought it went by mass appeal, but when viewed through an academic lens there was so much more to it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Block out a lot of time to read the material, the literature is difficult, even being at a high reading level I found myself going back, re reading and looking up words. Taking the time to properly discuss the work is key.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to another student because Professor Buscemi was a very insightful teacher. She works with you as long as you work with her, shes cool.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this class was the fact that everything seemed to be linked together. She would assign for you to read something from a short story, or poem, or book and it'll all be linked into discussion the next day.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just follow along and stay focused it'll all fall into place

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Prof. Penna made the class. His energy was dedicated to finding hidden emotions that truly expressed how you felt and helped put it in writing. The class had much to offer. Opening up and being able to read in front of a class full of strangers was the most unsettling of all, but it actually helped me get comfortable and more open in a social aspect. The class generally made you find yourself and creativity.

    Course highlights:

    Enjoying the class was a huge highlight. I would have never expected to like an english course at Suffolk, but Penna managed. I found that writing and creativity come hand and hand, so it gave me a different outlook on myself. I explored more through creativity which I thought I never had and my perception of writing has been different since.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To read the short story's that are posted weekly, you never know what you'll learn from them or when you'll be quizzed. To take it seriously because the class is wonderful if you want to really explore yourself and let your thoughts and imagination run wild with full expression. Don't be afraid or embarrassed to let others hear your work.
