    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it was a great detailed look into Shakespeare's work. There was a great amount of material covered but the professor had a great appreciation for this Shakespeare course and made the class very interesting and engaging.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were getting the chance to really read some of the great plays that I have heard about and seen. I learned how to really look closely at all of the details. I learned that Shakespeare had a lot to say about his time that still largely applies to our time today.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read a lot. Pay attention to the footnotes. Watch clips of plays if you can! It helps a lot!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is incredibly engaging and brings Shakespeare to life. He also brings very detailed and interesting analysis to lecture.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were being able to see throughout Shakespeare's plays the ways he has written over so many different aspects of the human condition.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I'd advise that students read the plays early and either take notes or annotate, so that when the professor starts talking about the analysis in lecture you're ready to absorb as much as possible, since the analysis is usually complex and students need to be prepared.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Arnold has one of the most beautiful relationships with the text of Shakespeare that inspired in me such fierce passion for the power half-a-century-old language can have on its contemporary readers to incite such emotion.

    Course highlights:

    As mentioned before, the absolute main highlight was the display of human sentiment that Shakespeare and his half-century-old plays could evoke in us as an audience 500 years later. It said much about the human experience, and how some virtues and vices will grace our race forever.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Try to read the plays as much as you actually can because you simply don't get the same experience if you haven't actually read the play and digested the language that Arnold so artfully deconstructs.
