Professor Prescott has a great sense of humor, is friendly and knows what she's talking about when it comes to this time period. She's an expert! She's lenient about late papers, it seems. Still, make sure you read in this class. If you don't, you'll be kinda screwed for the papers and the major, super-hard final exam. She's yet another Barnard English department professor that doesn't facilitate discussion very well and her lectures tend to be a bit dry (so many people doodled in their notebooks in class). Still, again, she's intelligent in this area of study and is accessible.
