Great class! Prof. Deutsch was passionate and knowledgeable. The professor was straightforward and didn't mince words; she often spoke out about sometimes delicate and perhaps taboo topic, in a educated and respectful way. The class was an easy A, granted you kept up with all of the reading, participated in class and were capable at producing quality writing. This class gave us a us a chance to really dive into Jonathan Swift, and understand the nuances in his writing as well as his person. I would definitely recommend this class and take similar classes offer by Prof. Deutsch.
I really enjoy the Individual Authors series in the English major because it feels important to really zoom in on an individual at some point in the curriculum, and I would highly recommend all English majors try at some point to take an individual authors course. Professor Deutsch is incredibly knowledgable in her field and her patience in discussing a topic she's an expert in with total newbies was really encouraging. We read from a single text, the Norton Edition Writings of Swift, which was a bit pricey (coming from an English major who's used to getting cheap/free online editions of novels) but really convenient in the long run. Participation is the heart of this class, and being able to interpret and discuss all aspects of literature is very important. If you want to engage with a subject on a very high, very detailed level, this is the class. You get what you give, and although there is not much graded work, it is very easy to fall behind and potentially lose out on great essay topics if you aren't deep in the discussions and lectures.
