    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The lectures were very entertaining and the teacher offered great insights that I would have never even thought of. The lectures were fluid and not rehearsed at all. The discussions were also good to hear the TA's and other students' thoughts while still being able to share my own ideas.

    Course highlights:

    The professor was the best part of the course with his on-the-spot thinking teaching style. I learned new ways to interpret literature, particularly poetry, as well as begin to find deeper meanings in works more on my own as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise students to take note of any quotations the professor mentions in class for the midterm and final and to try and recognize themes that stretch into different works or time periods and how they connect, which is great in improving one's analytical skills. While the readings may be tedious, they are worth it as most of them are great reads.
