Comment: Professor Lima is really enthusiastic. He tells a lot of stories about funny things in his own life and also about the history of literature. There is a lot of reading, but the reading quizzes are pretty easy if you did all of it. Whenever a character dies, no matter how unimportant, remember how they died! The only other work is the 3 essays. Make sure you work hard on the essays and go into office hours beforehand! Enrique really reads the essays closely, so don't think you can BS them.

Comment: While the reading quizzes are easy and straightforward, the essays are where the real points are at. Professor Lima will notice any logical inconsistencies in your paper, so be sure to take your time in your analysis of the text.

Comment: Professor Lima tends to read passages in class instead of truly analyzing them and often goes off on tangents instead of teaching the material. However, his tangents and somewhat related discussions about the nature of literature, how it functions in society and how it has developed over time tend to be more interesting that what he is trying to teach.

Comment: "I'm a literature professor because I want to be unproductive.." He's funny because he tells the truth-isms. Reading quizzes are just that, checking if you read, and they tend to be right after a huge reading. For the amount of reading in this class, there is almost no work. That being said, he will tear any term paper apart, so don't expect to get an easy A where the midterm papers and final paper are worth 70% of your grade.
