    This course was very educational. The attempt to basically run two different genres at the same time is the only reason I dropped the review from a 5 to 4 star. I felt compelled to choose either poetry or plays due to the wealth of resources and didn't want to have to choose. Gratefully, I was able to download materials so I can review them offline.
