Engaging lecturer. Got by with a B- in her class attending maybe 4 or 5 lectures, total. But very passionate, very fun, very by the book. In her first lectures, she makes the point that if you attend lecture and do the readings, you'll be fine in her class. At the very least, you'd probably pull anywhere from a B to an A-, depending on your writing skills. Her choices for readings in this class were good, as well.
She's fantastic. I don't know what you guys are complaining about. Brilliant, funny, engaging. She genuinely cares about her students. If you're looking to cruise by with a perfect A in her (or any) class offered by the English Dept, you probably should think about changing your major. She challenges in the appropriate ways. You'll work in your class but that's kinda the point. Just do your work and read all the readings. It's really that simple.
