A Killer Syllabus!

      The next time your students complain about overwork, show them the syllabus for English 135 at the University of Michigan taught by the poet, WH Auden during the 1941-1942 school year.
       Over 6,000 pages of required 'light reading' including Shakespeare, Dante's "The Divine Comedy," Dostoevsky's "The Brother's Karamazov" and Melville's "Moby-Dick." And that is before you get to the 'recommended reading' list!
........Oh, and it is only a 2 credit course.
