    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because it is an easy and overall engaging class. At first it may seem boring but you delve deeper into the works of shakespeare and learn things you would not have noticed before.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to analyze Shakespeare's works and connect them to real life events, such as the wars going on during his time period.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always listen to what he says. At first it might seem like he's just rambling but he actually says a lot of important stuff.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Wonderful professor who taught me so much! We were able to go to local Shakespeare productions which helped me better understand our course readings. I completely fell in love with the Bard through this course!

    Course highlights:

    I think I was the only person in the class who had never read "Hamlet" before. I absolutely loved it; "Hamlet" is now my favorite play and Hamlet himself is my favorite character in any of Shakespeare's plays. I loved reading all of his works, however, (including his sonnets) and learning more about the themes: for example, we learned that some of the themes in "King Lear" are nothingness and blindness.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Use SparkNotes if you need help understanding any of the readings. DO NOT skip doing the readings!
