best coursera class of them all. The instructor and teaching assistants are closely in the class + there is a lot more interaction with them and the rest of the students than any other MOOC.
Enriching, wide reaching in scope. The Prof. Al Filreis lets ideas, not necessarily his own, in for debate and comment. The TAs are simply brilliant both in form and content. Bravo!

The course is enriched with tremendous content. It takes all the full hours, days and months to complete this course. As the Coursera is giving opportunity to do multitasking while learning from anywhere, this course seems a bit lengthy and demands full time attention. One may miss the link if one remains irregular. Poetry is a vast filed of thoughts and ideas. Indeed the course opens many new ranges of thoughts and ideas.
What I liked the most about the course is live discussion of the poems. Many poems were very difficult to understand but when more than two people get together to churn and decipher the words beyond their face value, any difficult poem becomes easy to grasp.

This course was easy to manage as a self-paced course. I appreciated options to look at additional materials. I liked the interaction in the discussion.

The course is approachable for people with little to no knowledge in poetry yet is interesting and challenging. It is well explained and manageable.

The professor interrupts the panel so much it’s incredibly distracting and it makes even the transcript hard to read.

Al Filreis is an excellent instructor and very charismatic, unfortunately the poetry taught consists of only one worldview: secular humanist. Its too bad, otherwise I would offer 5 stars.
