    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The beautiful thing about taking courses in literature from different time periods is you get to learn about history at the same time. For no course is this more true than Medieval Literature. There is no approaching the text without its context: medieval writers were very wrapped up in the sentiments and concerns of the time, and so I also learned a lot about how people thought and what was important to them.

    Course highlights:

    I learned loads: Medieval concepts of heaven, morality, the soul, foreign lands and people, etc. Symbolism: colors, stones, objects. How to pronounce/read middle English (more through personal research, although Professor Rose is great at it). Historical events and how they affected modes of thought. Snippets of Latin.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    There will be a lot - A LOT - of reading, so learn when to really dissect a passage and when to skim. Take notes while you read about anything you find interesting, and don't skimp on time to look into those passages and do background research. Also, Professor Rose is incredibly knowledgeable and therefore sometimes comes off as condescending, but she will recognize when you really care about the course.
