The timing of this class was a problem for many students ' running one evening per week from 7-10pm ' and several suggest they might have fared better during the day or if the class were split into two lectures per week. Students found Professor Dolan to be knowledgeable and engaging, though a bit disorganized at times. Several mentioned with appreciation his willingness to engage with alternative views from the class. A few students expressed a desire to see a greater range of poetry included in the future, and felt the selection was limited.
