Best Sellers of Polish Prose

Frajlich-Zajac, Anna Silver_nugget
Mickiewicz and Best Sellers of Polish Prose

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor Frajlich is one of the best teachers I've ever had in Columbia. I have already taken a couple of her literature classes in the past few years, and I greatly enjoyed all of them. Like the previous reviewers said, she is very knowledgeable and passionate about Polish Literature, so her lectures are very interesting. There is quite a long list of readings for her classes, but it's very manageable. She is also very helpful and understanding.

There are no exams in this class which is great. You'll need to write two essays, and your grade will be pretty much based on these papers plus weekly postings on the courseworks and/or in class participation in discussions.

Whether you're looking to satisfy your literature requirement, or you're just trying to find an interesting elective course, look no further :)

Workload:

Weekly postings, participation in discussion, two essays

Frajlich-Zajac, Anna Silver_nugget
Best Sellers of Polish Prose

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

The class had a very intersting reading list, and I enjoyed all of the books we covered. Professor Zajac did a lot of research about the period, authors, and scholarship on all the books we covered. She was very open to our own impressions and opinions. Overall this was a very good class for anyone interested in Polish literature, or in literature of the 1930s.

Workload:

Read a book per week or two, submit a journal entry about each book covered, 4-5 after class movie screenings, a 10-15 page final paper on a topic of your choice.
