    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Griffin assigned quite a bit of homework reading for each class, as expected in any literature course, but this thorough reading helped prepare us for the lectures, which were always extremely fascinating. Dr. Griffin is an actor. He plays his lectures in ways that he knows will be entertaining to his class. Other than the reading, assignments were very few. We wrote one paper, had two tests, and gave a recitation. I would definitely recommend taking this course for people who are interested in a challenge and in actually learning.

    Course highlights:

    Our semester focused on epic poems, from The Iliad to Paradise Lost. We not only enjoyed an in-depth look at the poetic forms, but we also explored the deeper meanings of the selections. It was so fascinating to see concepts like that of fate and free will called into question over and over by each different society in each different time period.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the assignments thoroughly and take notes as you read. Take notes in class. Pay attention. Participate. Dr. Griffin gives loads of great feedback. Put in the effort, and you won't be sorry.
