Comment: Carmen's R1A focuses on Shakespeare. After taking her class, I realized I actually enjoyed reading and trying to comprehend Shakespeare. She's really helpful with your essays. There are a lot of weekly writing assignments (EWA's) but you get used to them. Overall, this class will help you with your essay skills and reading comprehension.

Comment: Castillo is a lovely professor who is very engaged in literature. At least for me, this class was extremely hard to digest at first (it was on erotic Renaissance literature) but Castillo is very helpful. Her essays are highly analytical and require that you actually sit down with the text and engage its deeper meanings. Thus, it took a lot of time and effort. That having been said, go to her Office Hours: She gives you plenty of one-on-one time to discuss ideas and improvements for your essays. She is very helpful and encouraging of your ideas. I took this class straight out of high school and received an A, but it wasn't easy.
