Took a seminar with him, and then subsequently asked him to be my advisor. You either love him, or don't understand him. He's challenging, abstruse, sardonic, and hands down my favorite professor at the Farm.

Years ago I took a sophomore seminar from him. Amazing class. Came back here 13 years later just to rave. I can't recommend him highly enough.

He was my prof of modern American poetry at Tufts. I thought he was absolutely extraordinary and now, years later, I realize how great his influence was on me and what a wonderful teacher he was. I still remember how well he read Yeats.

Took a sophomore seminar on contemporary American short fiction. One of the best classes I've ever taken. Very hard, but the expansion of my views on literature was amazing. Extremely challenging, in a good way.

I think that this professor tends to be biased in his treatment of students and quite narrow-minded. If the student writes in a style that appeals to his ego, he encourages, if not, disparages. A terrible judge of character and potential.

He's completely different one-on-one than he is in lecture, and still great. Doesn't take himself too seriously. Take his classes.

Brilliant and witty - our class seemed to amuse him. Graded generously but was still hard on ideas.

He gave me personal help with my writing, and taught me how to analyze literature. A really caring and accessible teacher.

John L'Heureux was the single most unfair professor I encountered at Stanford.
