    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    There is no doubt that he is very intelligent but this class was extremely intense. There was at least one reading every night but there could be multiple. This was a literary history class but it seemed more like another literary analysis class. Every class was a lecture where he would talk mainly about the poets and history of the time but would then test you on your analysis of the poetry. Before I took this class I wish I knew he was a harsh grader. I am a good student who is use to getting A's and B's on essays, in his class I had to work really hard to get a B-. He does let you rewrite essays that were below a C, but he will only give you the grade for the average of the two grades.

    Course highlights:

    We went through the poets, short story writers, novelists, and playwrights starting with William Blake and ending with Virginia Wolf. We also read Hard Times by Charles Dickens. There were readings for every class that he would discuss in class. This was fine except that it felt like one class wasn't enough to read on our own or cover the material he assigned and three days wasn't enough for Hard Times.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are required to take this class from this professor I would definitely go to his office hours or talk to him as much as possible. He is willing to clarify things for you and after he has already discussed them in class. He will also discuss your essays with (if you are rewriting the essay) you and how you can improve them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The course is extensive, Cheng calls it the "Greatest Hits" of English Lit. There's a lot of awesome material read and you get a good sense of the different literary movements in the time period studied; the only downfall is that with so much to go over, there isn't much time to really appreciate all of it. Expect to read a lot of poetry.

    Course highlights:

    I really got a good sense of the different literary movements and how they (along with different historical events) shaped each other. We read a lot of fantastic work: Eliot, Faulkner, Joyce, Dickens - you name it. A great introductory course to English literature.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Hit the books! Lots of reading required for this course!
