Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class was the most thought provoking class. There's a stigma attached to it; that it's the "Harry Potter" class but it was so much more than that. It really made me examine the use of allegories and religion in literature and how it dictated so many stories that we don't even realize it. It was a pleasurable and informative class that strengthened both my belief in my own person beliefs and helped increase my already large love of literature.
I learned a lot about the authors of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Chronicles of Narnia as well as the intent of their stories. I also improved upon my critical thinking skills because at one point, you are asked to defend your thoughts on use of an allegory on a book that can be used either way. It was very thought provoking.

Advice for students:
Keep your mind open! No matter what you personally believe or don't believe, open your mind to the idea that the author does believe in something. You must respect that in order to learn in this class.
