TOP REVIEWS FROM PLAGUES, WITCHES, AND WAR: THE WORLDS OF HISTORICAL FICTION
A very interesting course. Only negative thing is that some of the authors are not very good at leading a lecture, and seem to stumble in their words a lot.
Highly informative and easy to follow, introduced me to many new readings and authors. Delivery was clear, interesting and entertaining.
This course has made me appreciate literary techniques in writing historical fiction. The dialogues and discussion were informative and the books are interesting.
Learned so much, I might take this course again! It prompted me to read several books I had not read before as well as learn much about my own writing. Thanks!
