Not too easy. Not too difficult.
There is a lot of heavy ready and many of the selected titles are hard to digest but the class discussions really fun and interesting. Everyone shares their opinions on it and what they think the readers are expressing. Dr. Poe gives us the freedom to talk about it the entire class period and adds his insight when it is helpful.
We learned about the life of Augustine and the struggles he faced when we read Confessions. We also read Virgil's Aeneid and the Bible. From hearing everyone's opinions on Biblical writings it really gave me a completely different perspective when I read the Bible now.

Advice for students:
Read everything, take notes prior to class, and give yourself a whole day to prepare if you are discussion leader.
