American Novel 1865-1914

all around great lady and an awesome professor. she was very clear about what needed to be done for the class. she was very detailed and prepared - every class she brought handouts of an outline for the lecture that made her thoughts easy to follow, which was definitely necessary for the amount of information she was throwing at us. yes, she sometimes talks very fast and covers A LOT of material, but the information is brilliant and the product of original thinking! she makes these novels come to life. in my section we often discussed how effectively she shed light on things we otherwise wouldn't have thought of. if this class or some incarnation of it is offered again, by all means take it! you'll want to do the work and if you do you'll get a good grade!
