    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was really fun for me! It made me think about what I was reading from different perspectives and forced me to write with a more focused understanding of the material. The instructor was very help at office hours! We read two novels by women writers of the time and many poems and short stories.

    Course highlights:

    This course is the second half of a two part survey of English Literature. I took it before taking the first part, which meant that there was a foundation in the material that I had missed, but it did not take away from the course at all. In fact, I am in the first part this semester and English 41 was actually more fun for me than the first part is so far. It is closer to the contemporary understanding of the English language so the material is not difficult to read and understand. I learned a lot about perspectives vs reality from reading Coleridge and the novels by women authors that we read.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I advise that you visit office hours at least once per month so that you can talk with the professor one on one. Asking questions and going over the response papers that you do is very help for the Midterm and Final paper because it all builds up so that you get a full understanding of the periods that were studied by the end. Also, try to stay on top of the reading and put effort into the response papers even though there is no minimum page limit. They came in handy for the final paper.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about all kinds of literature and will go out of her way to help you understand anything you need and even gives the class very detailed notes for help in future assignments and essays.

    Course highlights:

    It gives you a better perspective on how society was like back in the 19th and early 20th century, with some of the books being read in class that were made during those eras.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be afraid to ask the teacher for help! She will give you all the advice you need! And make sure to copy all the notes she writes because they're essentially the answers for the homework.
