Did not enjoy this class. unless you love shakespeare. A lot of analytical writing. Grades pretty hard on the paper assignment.

He's a really nice professor but his class is a bit on the more difficult side. You might not enjoy the readings unless you like Irish poetry and plays, along with the standard Shakespeare readings. He hands out a fair amount of homework and grades papers pretty hard but gives you the chance to revise them to get a better grade. Overall not bad.

Pretty brutal class, busts your ass hard if you didnt read. If you can relate to what he is saying and write the way he wants it to be written, the class wont be hard. Otherwise it can be challenging

Unless you absolutely love english, and are obsessed with thinking analytically all the time, do NOT take his class. If you haven't read the material, be warned because he WILL call on you, and YOU will have to stick up for your "minnesotan" answer. Would not recommend him.

His teaching style was different, but I learned a lot in the class. If one does the reading and pays attention in class, it is not too hard. Paper writing skills are good, but he will work with students to help them figure out what they are doing well or wrong. Overall, a good prof.

The class is very unorganized. He gives pop quotation quizzes whenever he feels like on one line out of 30 pages of reading and expects us to complete it is 15 minutes. You have no idea of how you are doing in the class. I wouldn't recommend him.

Knows his stuff like a pro, but that doesn't matter, because it's stuff no one should care about. Classtime is fine, but will make you feel dumb if you don't answer correctly. Papers can be very tough. Also smells bad, and leans up against blackboard and gets chalk letters all over himself. Doesn't put grades on papers, hard to gauge progress.

British Authors I. He's short, fat, bald, mustached, and incredibly energetic. A fun-house delight, but his B.O. shines when he gets in your face, quite literally. Gave the impression that we could work up our grades, but left very little leeway in the end. I got a B-, and I probably deserved it

Redshaw is so intelligent. You can really learn a lot from him. You should make sure to be up to date on readings, or he will make you pay. He asks questions in class, and you live in fear of being called on. Despite that, I really like the material and his lectures.

This was the worst class I have ever taken. He loves to tell people they are wrong and make them feel like crap. He never put grades on papers so you thought you were doing just fine untill you see your final grade. He is very misleading and I would not recommend him.

Fun guy. Made class interseting. ALOT of reading so be prepared.Test are mostly essay format. He loves what he teaches and is passionate about his students success. Very approachable, but sometimes odd. Dont take the class if you dont like to read and analyze extensively.
