Pretty easy, overall.
This course is great for students who enjoy reading literature but have a difficult time finding themes. If you have a difficult time deciphering what a possible theme for a short story, poem, play, or otherwise, may be, this is a great course that uses repetition to allow you great practice on finding concise theme statements and defending them in short papers. The only downside to this class is that the in-class discussion is only about the readings for the previous night and does not really go in-depth about the reading. Mostly surface -level conversation is had during the class period. Overall good class.
In this class you will learn how to find clear and concise theme statement for various types of literature and how to defend your theme statements through short papers.

Advice for students:
If you want to succeed, read the assigned reading before class and actually turn in the papers. This class is easy and the only way you can fail is by not showing up, not turning in your papers, and not reading.
