    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Understanding the literary history behind a country can be the most intriguing and puzzling way to appreciate its many facets throughout time. The views of its populace; their emotional state from year to year; the places in which those same people place their sense of importance, all come into a clearer view after taking this course. More specifically, Professor Thomas Parker allows this to be the case through his use of the Socratic Method of teaching (or something very near it), which makes the class engaging and every lesson memorable.

    Course highlights:

    The most satisfying lesson I have learned from this course was the duality of authorship. In understanding that there is no objective interpretation of a text, the class allows for a more creative, fulfilling interpretation that stems from individual perspective that I think is indispensable.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read and reread. Understand that there is always more to be found in a text, despite how many times it has been read, but that those discoveries take time and careful study.
