Monica Cohen is exactly what an English professor should be. Her class was a perfect mixture of lecture and student participation. She asks a lot of questions that lead to productive, and insightful discussion, which is a feat, as any one who has taken an English class will know. I completely disagree with the reviewer below who said that her lectures seem like she is reading from her notes, as well as the reviewer who said that she talks too fast. Her lectures are interesting, to-the-point, extremely erudite, and somewhat complex, but she is always willing to break for questions or to expand on her ideas if the class doesn't quite follow. She is also amazingly sweet, friendly, helpful, and appropriately casual at times. The reading list is incredible and Prof. Cohen is passionate about the books, which is infectious.
