Comment: Don't try to take notes, just sit back and enjoy whatever he's saying. I really enjoyed lecture and all the ideas he brought up about the novels -- it was my favorite class

Comment: He speaks with a quiet stutter, making him difficult to understand without sitting in the front. Reading is heavy for 45C but it is an English class.

Comment: An OK professor. Funny, nervous, and rambling in an endearing way, but with very disorganized lectures that were difficult to follow. I enjoyed the class more after deciding to stop trying to take notes. He focuses a whole lot on the historical backgrounds of the novels, especially pertaining to technology, which was interesting and gave a sort of different perspective. Two 4-5 page essays and short answer/essay midterm and final, all of which are graded by your GSI. Mine happened to be a very rough grader and completely unhelpful in office hours, which made me not exactly love the class despite the great book list.

Comment: Poor guy. Clearly was interested in the material and has an interesting background that you should totally find out about in OH. His lectures flowed well and his powerpoints incorporated outside media like music that gave a nice edge to studying literature but he stuttered a lot, rambled, and most of his lectures were hard to follow. First midterm was "unfair" in that it was nothing like he described but we did have three hours to do a one hour final. Only two papers (4-5 pg).

Comment: Goble is endearing with his stuttering and nervous analysis of the novels we went through in class. He tended to give a more historical view of the books, rather than an actual analysis of the novel. His class was interesting, but I often felt he was disorganized and lectures were kind of useless. There are 2 6-8 page essays that are graded by a reader, depending on your last name. Exams were pretty fair -- 7-8 short essays concerning quotes Goble picks from the books where you explicate its overall theme and meaning. Your grade's determined by your reader and mine was pretty harsh so hope for a good one!
