Professor Torres leads engaging lectures and has lots of knowledge about fiction and literature in general. The way the class was structured was we would read 2-3 stories for each lecture (so 2x a week) and then discuss the stories in class. The stories were interesting, but I didn't always have time to read them. And it wasn't essential to read everything due to the way the papers and final paper are structured. The assignments are very flexible because you can pick 5 out of the 10 essays that you would like to write, so if you have a busy week you don't have to write that week. I would definitely recommend this class to anybody interested in literary analysis.

91C with Torres was a fantastic course. From day one, I found his lectures and the required readings to be very engaging. I must say, if you are not a fan of "dark" topics (murder, sex, crime), this class is likely not for you. Two essays + a final exam were the graded materials, and I must say, the essays are graded harshly. The final exam is incredibly easy, as long as you keep up with the readings (there are a lot of them). Torres is brilliant -- hilarious, intelligent, and immensely creative. I'd love to work with him again.
