    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because I read and learned so much about different aspects of literature and literary terms. It was fun to have conversations about what we read and help get the deeper meanings of things like symbols in the books we read.

    Course highlights:

    What I gained from this course was knowledge about how to analyze literary text and find thematic ideas from within the work. It's important to take in different valid interpretations of what a literary work is trying to get across. Realizing that most stories use intertextuality was key. Like in "In The Lake Of The Woods" by Tim O'Brien, Kathy - one of the main characters- references Verona - which is a literary allusion to Romeo and Juliet in how they wanted to escape to Verona - much how Kathy wanted to escape with John. There are various subtle things in literary works that I'm now aware of because of the knowledge I obtained from this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just make sure to read what you need to on time. Think about what you read and be analytical. Be aware of what thematic ideas may be present in the text like catharsis, irony, etc. Contribute to class conversations whenever they have them.
