    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Voorhees is one of the best literature professors on campus, and I absolutely loved this course! Modernism is one of my favorite periods of literature, and this course allowed me to explore some of the period's most influential authors.

    Course highlights:

    All of the works we read in this course were thought provoking and mildly life-changing! With each new book, short story, or essay that I read, my horizons expand, and I am able to look at life in a new and exciting way. For example, we read works by Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Faulkner, and they really opened up the of post-WWI trauma. Not only did I learn about literature in this course, but I learned about the history of America. I realized that this country has faced so many hardships, but it presses on through all resistance.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the material! So many people think you can skate by in Literature courses with SparkNotes or by skimming, but that is not the case. When you don't fully read you damage your grade, and you miss out on the way a book could change your life.
