Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It is an interesting course about stories of tragic love stories, and Professor Grenier is very knowledgeable about the novels and their backgrounds. It is a discussion-based class and she makes it engaging with thought-provoking questions. There are three big papers that you have a few drafts of, and she is very clear about what she wants you to change with her thorough feedback. There are many short writing assignments but she gives a lot of guidance and is very flexible about deadlines.
My writing definitely improved from the course, and I learned a lot about Russian society because 2 of the 3 books we read were centered around that.

Advice for students:
Keep up with the reading because it's difficult to catch up, especially with the longer chapters, and it helps with all the papers, presentations, and discussions.
