If you love literature, you will love the class. Birgit Linder is very knowledgeable, she has translated many Chinese literature into English -- you will learn more than you expect.

It is to CityU's great loss that she is going to leave us for another university.

She truly encourages creativity. She loves her students.

- There're a few short readings every week related to different kinds of madness. Take this course if you're interested in reading literary texts related to madness, you will find the readings interesting.
- There're too much information in the ppt where it's quite hard to recognize the keypoints.
- You have to read the readings and recognize the keypoints in the ppt in order to get a good grade in the quizzes.
- The creative project is interesting too.
- The lecture is a bit boring.

Those quizzes are easy (if you read all the lecture notes and readings)
I got 14/20 and 16/20......
You never know the grade of your group project and final essay (I did not ask about that)

This introductory course to psychoanalysis in literature consisted of weekly readings (usually 2 or 3 short stories), in-class discussions, two quizzes which were quite straight forward, a creative project and an individual essay. Materials could be a bit challenging for students with little or no experience in reading literature, but our instructor has also made every effort to inspire various ways that could help decipher the texts (quizzes and discussions were not so in-depth, except for the final essay which required exploring the topics in a very critical manner with close reference to secondary sources).
Personally I've enjoyed this course very much and would recommend it to anyone interested in this field- it's one of the few courses where you can actually gain an insight into the wider and more exciting spectrum.

連續三個禮拜Quiz+Project Presentation+Essay,超chur
而且讀親既一係讀英文,一係就外國人,英文差少少都會比下去
不過Instructor比分勁鬆,好多組presentation都攞A range
