  • Mary Vosper
    Mary Vosper United Kingdom Overall, the best part of the course for me was the poetry by Coleridge. I think it is beautifully written and enjoyed studying it. The least interesting part of the course was Miller's 'The Crucible'. Although I understand why it was chosen as part of the course, the text was rather morbid and not in the least enjoyable. In respect of Shakespeare's 'Macbeth', the language, at times, was challenging and so interrupted the appreciation, understanding and analysis of his work. 2014-12-15 16:12:18
