Reflection/Assessment:

This class covered one of my English major requirements and I took it because I thought I would like the materials. I found that this class was informative of early New England, but was hard to connect to even for a New Englander. While I understood the need to start from the beginning and the earlier works to understand the basis for other writers, I thought that it would have been beneficial to read more modern literature along with the older literature.   I also felt that we missed many important New England writers and skipped over New England poets like frost entirely. At the end I felt that I didn’t really learn anything new from this course.
