Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The stories chosen are worthwhile to most any student and focus on interesting, but complex topics, such as feminism, race relations, and classism. The course also focusses on classics, like Frankenstein, Hamlet, and Pride and Prejudice, and how the works were influenced by writing movements of the time, such as romanicism and modernism.
I'd have to say the projects were the best part about the class. Being a lover of in-depth reflection and a finder of allusions, the book reflections and papers were easy to me. Not only this, but some projects were to do a drawing to, for example, express scrupulous meanness in a form given by the book, Dubliners. They were quite easy, didn't need much effort, and I'd always get an A. However, the sheer AMOUNT of projects given at one time was challenging.

Advice for students:
ALWAYS do the readings on time. You might think that you can skirt the reading questions with Spark Notes, and you might be right, but you'll fail the big project that's due after the book is finished.
