Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Her class is very entertaining because you go further in Shakespeare then you probably ever have before! You discuss historical background behind the plays and have insightful conversations about deeper meanings behind the plays. It is about the plays; we never went over his sonnets.
Very entertaining lectures. You will know more about the plays when you leave the course and will appreciate them more. She makes even the ones you find boring interesting.

Advice for students:
You're going to have to read plays before class some days. When this happens, it always took me about 2-2.5 hours on an awake brain and about 4 hours on a sleep-deprived one. Basically, Read Before It Gets Too Late! And set aside time to read. If you have to read the play on the same night as other homework try to get both done early if possible. You don't want to be reading Shakespeare at three in the morning. There are three essays. The first two can be written in about 8 hours. The last is a bit longer. I'd suggest spending longer if possible but if you're struggling with other classes don't panic. That's the worst thing to do. Just let the ideas flow- if you paid attention in class and are insightful then you're good. Just write! You can always go with given topics or create your own so do whatever you think will help you the best! Also, (and here's a biggie) You need to show up to class! If you're one of those people who likes to do the homework, etc, but sleep in or not go to class this is NOT the class for you. Attendance is taken every day and after two absences points are taken off your grade. After ten you auto-fail.
