Nepomnyashchy, Catharine Silver_nugget
[CLRS V3224x] Nabokov

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

Professor Nepomnyashchy can barely keep her head on straight. The course requirements were outstandingly vague, emails went unanswered, and sometimes the majority of a class would be spent discussing topics tangentially related to a single sentence in a book's introduction.

That said, the class was surprisingly enjoyable. The books are all great reads, and the insight Nepomnyashchy provides is invaluable.

Highly recommended for anyone who never got past Lolita.

Workload:

Not bad. A decent amount of (enjoyable) reading, weekly discussion posts, in-class midterm and final.
