One of the best professors I've ever had. His lectures were a real treat and I looked forward to going to class every time. Your grade is largely dependent on the TA, however, and I felt that the essays were graded a bit harshly. Although I am a south campus major, I do feel that writing is my strong suit, so I was a bit disappointed with my grades on the writing assignments and the paper. Admittedly, I did write most of them rather last minute, so maybe that's why I got the grades that I did. The final is pretty straightforward: you get about 10 passages and you analyze about 8 of them. If you've never taken Professor Dickey before though, I highly recommend taking him for this class. It's super fun and even though I've read some of the works before in high school, I learned so much more about them than I ever did then.

Professor Stephen J Dickey is the best Professor I have ever had at UCLA. He is extremely passionate regarding teaching and poetry. He is an extremely interesting person and teaches us the poems in an extremely passionate manner. He wants the students to discuss and deliberate with him and the Class and add to the teaching process. I learned a lot in this Class.
He assigns poems each and every week which he then teaches and discusses in Class. They are not compulsory but doing even one poem every week will help you in the Midterm and the Final (it was optional for Winter 2020). The section is compulsory and my TA was a hard grader, but I cannot emphasize more how helpful she was. She was great! You had to be 'visible' in the section and had to contribute to the activities. After that, there was an Essay where you had to write on a poem in extreme detail. Having said all this, the course load is doable as long as you are on top of it.

If you have a chance to take any Class with Stephen Dickey at UCLA, do not hesitate for even one second and just take it. You will not regret it at all.

Professor Dickey was a great teacher! Class discussions were wonderful. My TA was AWESOME! Get Conor O'Sullivan if you can.

The midterm was reasonable. There is a scansion part and an essay writing portion. The final was more difficult, as it was 66% essay writing.

All in all, a very rewarding class and a fun experience.

Professor Dickey is very knowledgeable and I definitely enjoyed that he made the class very interactive. Going to class is important since he loves to give out quizzes. I liked that his papers topics were on very short passages, thus forcing students to really close read. The only problem I had was that he didnt' have too much structure with the TAs. I had Holly Moyer and I'm telling you now AVOID HER AT ALL COSTS. She's condescending, takes forever to answer e-mails and is a very harsh grader. She wants graduate level work but doesn't work with her students to achieve this. Other than that, it was a good class and as long as you read the final was pretty simple.
