    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone who enjoys reading and discussing literature. Truthfully, I signed up for this class because it is a prerequisite but, I shortly learned that that did not mean it would be easy. I love reading and I love writing but I've never been great at in depth analysis of literature. This class, and the professor specifically, forces you to do more than just summarize a work of literature when writing about it. My professor would always hand papers back and force the student to "dig deeper" to find the most meaning out of the story. The best thing I took away from this class was a greater appreciation for literature and a better understanding of how to approach a work in order to get the most information out of it. I would highly recommend this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to read a piece of literature, especially poetry, a handful of times and find deeper and deeper meaning every time I read it. My favorite part of this class was being able to put together all the different pieces of a story and come to a conclusion that I would have glossed over the first time around. This class really made me think critically about what I was reading but did not make reading literature an less enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of the work! It's hard to leave a story until the night before to read. Rushing through the assignments always causes you to miss subtle plot points that can make the story completely different than the first time you rushed through it. Little details can be very important.
