Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Absolutely loved the class. I got the chance to work with Middle English and Anglo-Saxon which has sparked a new educational passion for me, and I am reading it recreationally now.
A walk through the literary ages. From Odysseus to Shakespeare and worlds between. We studied the language, inferences made based on the language used. We studied every aspect of what drove the authors to use the language they did, and the cultural impact the work had during its day. There is a lot of reading required, this was an honors course, however the group I was in was very close, and we worked well with each other. The entire class was fun and educational. Dr. Knapp is an amazing professor, he covers every aspect he wants you to know, and ensures that you are understanding the ideas as the course progresses. This was by far one of my favorite courses.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to read. You will be doing a lot of that. Ask questions. Dr. Knapp is an amazing professor. While he does expect you to put in the time to do the work, he is also willing to help you if or when you get stuck or don't understand.
