    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The material has both good and bad in it, however the instructor was very good at making the class fun and interesting. There is a lot of reading to keep up with.

    Course highlights:

    The material that was assigned to us had many lessons in them that we could apply into our own personal lives. Also, the instructor was very helpful and willing to explain all the lessons in multiple ways so that the whole class understood the material.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind in the reading, it is fast paced and there are assignments for all of the readings. Go to class because the instructor holds very informational discussions.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The discussions in this class were amazing because the other students contributed different meanings to the same poem that you would have never thought of. This cours really opens your mind.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that poetry is not just about putting words together, it is also about interpretation with feelings. Not only the feelings of the poet but also of the situation that the people in that time are going through. A poem also consists of other structures like rhythm, dictation, etc. Poems have become so much more interesting now that I know what to look for in a reading.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed, you must understand the poetry era that the professor has introduced. This will help you better understand why a poet wrote the way that they did and it will help with upcoming assignments.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the professor allows you to gain a different perspective on readings that you never thought possible for such poems.

    Course highlights:

    Being able to hear the professor read the poems out loud. I learned that a poem is composed, not just of words, but also of a carefully planned out structure that consists of many different things.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    This course is not about writing poetry, it is about understanding the different eras in poetry history and how the times affected the poet's work.
