This class was tough.
Completely enriching, and eye-opening. I did not enjoy studying classic literature before this course, because I didn't understand the deeper themes and didn't form opinions on the passages I read. This course was difficult and interesting, exposing me to new material I would have never picked up. Learning about Romanticism, Transcendentalism and Realism helped form my morals personally, and it was cool to be reading the same books that my parents, grandparents and generations before me had studied.
My favorite part of the course were the Naturalism and Transcendentalism units. We were assigned a lot of material to read and analyze, but it was worth it. We covered a lot of vocab too, but that was easy to stay on top of.

Advice for students:
Start working on projects and assignments the day they are given to you! Much less painful to complete a 40 question multiple choice packet when you do it over a week than one night.
