Intro to the Comp Lit Major

Sep 2004

For the first half of the course, I couldn't believe my luck. Dabashi is a brilliant, if eccentric, teacher whose extremely controversial opinions and lecture style really got me thinking. Unfortunately, about 7 weeks into the course, he starts to repeat himself--often, and without realizing it--and the class becomes very dull. Also, there are always a couple of overly vocal students in the class who feel it is their right to call out every inane thought that flits through their minds during lecture, which Dabashi ignores but can get extremely irritating to the other students. If you're a Comp Lit Major, enjoy the class while you can, then start skipping the extra required session at night.
