    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because although the teacher has a tough character, the class is very helpful and it is very productive as well.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to take poems apart and find the different aspects of this. That is, identifying the rhetorical devices etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do ALL the work: homework, class work, and more if possible. Oh and take notes!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The professor really attempts to challenge his students in order for them to improve their intellectual skills.

    Course highlights:

    This course focused more on improving and further developing skills we already had but there were certain topics we learned about such as symbolism and the structure of stories.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Complete all of the course work and actively participate in class. Also prepare for class every day.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Analyzing literary works is absolutely incredible. From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to Shakespeare's Hamlet, analyzing the symbolism and overall theme of the work is thought-provoking and makes you crave more. Highly recommend because analytical skills are definitely sharpened here.

    Course highlights:

    Discussion of the symbolism of ANY literary work was tremendous fun. Reading a story is 100% different than studying a story. I learned that different themes are in a novel/novella and many stories are comments by the author on real life events.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the time to study material throughly. Many things are symbols and have meaning. Take the time ponder and find the meaning to the symbols. Be active in group discussions not only will it make the class more interesting if students participate, but individually students learn more by being active in class.
