    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this course. The main thing you do is read and analyse various works ofor literature. The course itself is pretty easy. There were few assignments and no tests. We did, however, have a few in-class essays, and what work we did get was all reading and writing. Over the course of the year, we read classics like the Odyssey, Dante's Inferno, As I Lay Dying, and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I liked the exposure to so many different kinds of literature. This class exposed me to works that I would have never thought to read otherwise, and I ended up really enjoying them

    Course highlights:

    The thing that I enjoyed most about the course was reading Dante's Inferno. Dante's take on hell was extremely interesting, and I gained some sick pleasure reading the various punishments of the sinners. One part of the year that was very funny was when we were reading As I Lay Dying and my friends and I found the chapter where the only words were "my mother is a fish." That was a laugh for all of us. The main thing I learned in this course was how to analyze literature on a deeper level.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make friends in the class so you can read and discuss the readings together. Also, if you don't understand something, spark notes can come on handy.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The course itself is fairly easy. The main thing you do is read works of literature and analyse them for meaning. In this course, I read classics like the Odyssey, Dante's Inferno, As I Lay Dying, and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I really liked the exposure to so many different kinds of literature. We read books in that class that I had never thought to read before, and I ended up really enjoying them. The work you do in this class is all writing and essays. There are no tests, but there are in-class essays. Overall, if you like to read and write, and would like to read and discuss various types of literature in a group environment, this class is the class for you.

    Course highlights:

    Definately my favorite part of the course was reading Dante's Inferno near the end of the year. It was extremely interesting to read about Dante's take on hell, and there is some sick enjoyment gained from reading about the various punishments sinners are exposed to. Another experience I had, which was very funny, is when my friends and I were reading As I Lay Dying and we got to the chapter where the only words were "my mother is a fish." That gave us all a laugh. Overall, I learned how to more deeply analyse literature, and I was exposed to many different kinds of literature along the way which I had never read before.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make friends in the course. Then, you can discuss aspects of books or poems you are reading with them. Also, if you have trouble understanding something in a story, spark notes come in handy.
