    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course truly changes your perspective on the written word. I know it is easy to think professors read too much into pieces of literature, but after taking this class I realised that there is so much hidden meaning in every word of poetry or that short stories are so carefully thought out. Professor Prado was also the best and most passionate professor I have ever had.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me was when I was reading a short story and I finally got the meaning behind it, for example Edgar Allen Poe's "Cask of Amontillado" and all the foreshadowing which takes place. Professor Prado also made this course the best that I have taken. Her passion and dedication to this class made it that much better!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    First of all, take the course. To do well in this course you have to go to class, because the class discussion is really important and this is when you learn the most. I think being organised and obviously doing the readings really helped me a lot too.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course because it allows students to use out of the box thinking. It really makes one think instead of just getting an answer.

    Course highlights:

    I gained knowledge on what to look for when I'm reading. Now when I read any book, I say "Oh, that's a symbol".

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend reading "How to Read Literature Like a Professor" by Thomas C. Foster. It will give you an introduction of literature and what to expect.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Great course, especially if you enjoy reading. It isn't extremely demanding the only downfall is that you work in groups and get a participating grade based off your group mentioning something about either one of the three poems/short-stories assigned the previous class and we all know how anything with groups goes.

    Course highlights:

    Analyzing a poem and story and listening to the variety of interpretations that people may have.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely take it if you like literature and don't stress it too much. But DO show up.
