Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I really enjoyed this course. It's a survey course so you get to sample the various ways to analyze literature, making it easier to pick your upper level theory class because the upper divisions focus on just on just one or two approaches.
I enjoyed the text we used in class. A book on theory by Peter Barry and the Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. I enjoyed getting to read and learn about the approaches and then we applied them to the metamorphosis. One of the biggest things that I learned from this class is that there is always another side to the story. There is never one correct way to look at anything it can all be twisted to argue any point. I thought that was pretty cool and very useful.

Advice for students:
I suggest highlighters and pens and such for marking up the text. It will help you when you need to find information fast. I also recommend finding a study buddy and sit next to them in class so you can help each other.
