    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class was engaging itself! Mr. Caraway is an amazing professor, patient, funny and very knowledgeable. He goes deeper into the literature, giving us background on the history, author and most importantly, what is going on during the time the piece is written.

    Course highlights:

    I was able to understand historical components better through the author's work. Their morals and ethics. And above all, their mindset during the specific timeframe.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy reading! There's nothing worse than taking a literature class and not like reading. Don't worry if you don't understand the text itself, the professor goes over the material in class.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it exposes you to a different writing style than the Western norm. You learn skills that every writer/reader should have. Unfortunately, this course relies heavily on William Shakespeare and not on any other well-known author within British Lit.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was when we were given the task to create our own sonnet sequence. Writing a true Shakespearean Sonnet is difficult, but once you read enough of William Shakespeare's sonnets, you realize that it just follows a simple algorithm.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every play. Thoroughly. Shakespeare loves to use metaphors that are difficult to decipher to the untrained eye. Use a "Shakespeare translator" that translates his works into modern English. This saved me many times in this class.

    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course. The professor makes very interactive lessons and make is go in depth.

    Course highlights:

    A major highlight of the course was when we studied Beowulf. We saw a live re-enactment, and that really deepened our understanding.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The professor is great, try to build a relationship with him. The course itself is different than just another English class.
