My fav part of class was the discussions. He always lead an interesting class. He graded a little harder than I would expect for a 200 level course, but I enjoyed it overall. He was very helpful and always offered to help with papers and assignments.

He was very nice and respectful towards students. Helpful on all papers, and interested in what everyone had to say. Readings were a bit boring but he was always open to discussion in class. I would take his class again and suggest anyone to talk in that class. He loves feedback.

Tends to agree with students too much in discussions. Probably a little too objective. Overall, an easy class but quite a few of essays to write, typical from an English class.

This class was the only interesting class I took this semester. The discussion was stimulating and Prof. Quimby lead the discussion well. The reading was difficult, but the lectures made it easy. Students that are not interested in English may not enjoy the class as much.

after reading the reviews i am appalled. students must be open to teachers as well. just because he didnt seem approachable to u is not his fault. he is outgoing very willing to help and a great person. his grading scale is fair and accurate. i am a junior and had quimby my freshmen year. he still sticks out as an excellent professor.

Nice guy. Discussions were always interesting. Strict grader with few assignments to balance mistakes. Final is fair and easy, though.

He is a nice grad student, however, the English department has done him a serious injustice. I think Literary Theory and Criticism should be left to faculty. He rarely used the text, and the authors we studied were all "dead white guys." The diversity just wasn't there. I would say take this class with Erwin or Becker-Leckrone.

Although our class had a strong dislike for him, he knew his stuff. A very intelligent professor, I learned a lot of stuff from him, though did not like him at times. STRICT Grading scale, and hard class, but you will learn.

Contemp. Am. Lit. Seemed like an easy class, to begin. Covers only what the intros say, not the whole material or quotes. Crap grading scale. He's a grad student = over-achieving, thinks he's above the students, self-righteous. Hard grader, vague class discussions, vague paper assignments (what is "American" and "European" about these works?) .

Course focuses intensively on research. Comparatively strict grader, especially about formatting and grammar. Class discussions are thought provoking, and he's very nice about everything. Likes to talk. A lot.
