By far the best professor I have ever had in my four years at Cornell. Hilarious, interesting, and fair. I loved his class even though it had nothing to do with my major.

OMG. Where did this guy come from?? He seems like the nicest guy in lecture and then you talk to him in person and he is a self-centered jerk. His ego is a mile long and why is that? Why are the less famous always the arrogant ones!! It's a powerhouse dept and he is a lightweight.

Generally enjoyed the class; found humor and insight in the lectures. Only reading is the novels involved in the section. Most were good... Got really sick of reading Jewish perspective books, though.

Absolutely the best prof. at Cornell. The coolest dude ever. You really need to pay attention in class to do well on the tests, but the material is so legit that you wont mind taking notes. If you like woody allen or larry david you will love glenn.

Knowledgable on what HE thought was interesting. When asked about matters not directly related to his lectures, he is evasive and uninterested. Takes personal offense if one of the readings is unanimously rated as boring. Puts on airs...a wannabe intellectual.

Very engaging lecturer. Opinionated, but open to debate; a good thing if you're well-informed and a very bad thing if you haven't through things through fully.

Brilliant lecturer...He really forces you to absorb the material just because he speaks with so much conviction. Great command of the language...Tries to incoporate his opinion sometimes, which you should watch out for, but still highly recommended.

A great lecturer, he can be preachy but the his real skill as a teacher is in his choice of topic...he is able to distill interesting stuff into educational material which makes for a fun class.
