Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The course was very intriguing with lots of cultural norms put to the side so that we could talk about connecting our lives to the lives of the characters in each Shakespeare play we read. We would act out parts occasionally, being very welcomed to go fully into the character so that we could learn more about the roles these types of people represented. Overall I loved this course and would recommend to anybody interested in learning more about world views and history.
I loved being able to talk and act in a Shakespearean-time manner. There were plenty of great discussions on how we thought each character was portrayed and how we could connect them to people of the time, as well as how odd it was that Shakespeare chose to portray some of characters so that they went exactly against the social norms of the time, even though now it wouldn't be noticed.

Advice for students:
Always do the reading. That way you always up to speed with what professor Duhatschek is talking about. Engage in conversation; participation is part of the grade. Also, professor Duhatschek makes some amazing points about society that can change the way you look at the norms that we try to stay to.
