Tufts University: Downing Cless - Drama - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Downing Cless | DR001 - Comedy and Tragedy| Drama2005-01-18

I commend him for the effort he put into being funny. That being said, I found his lectures rather boring, and he never had anything especially smart to say about the plays we were reading. Granted this was a survey class, and we only had so much time to spend on each play, the questions he raised during discussions were usually very mundane, and we barely touched on the theoretical aspects of the plays (absurdist, brechtian, etc). I feel we mostly did literary analysis. This is not just because this was a survey class. I've seen survey classes taught better.

I did like the guest speakers, however. They had interesting things to say. As did the TAs. Watch out for the TAs, though. They were tough graders.

A play a week, 2-3 reviews, a midterm, a final project, and a final exam. Very manageable.
