Comment:
Dr. Hatch is a quick-thinking, intellectual genius who never plods. Listening to this ex-next door neighbour "Brother Hatch" is truly fascinating to any cardinal-minded red prince, left or Tory. What a savant and a joy to behold in high flight as this serial-genius accelerates through hundreds of years in breath taking wonder and awe.

Comment:
If you ever wondered what a prof looks like when he's decomposed, that's him! The most boring class ever, and his grading is downright stupid. He picks on people, and downgrades women. His choice of works is beyond horrible, and gets tanged up on rather inappropriate novels. Don't recommend this class to anyone, not even my enemy!

Comment:
Absolutely boring and inaudible. He's a grammar Nazi, and doesn't provide any guidance when you go see him during his office hours except ramble about what he thinks is right. He picks favorites and doesn't accept readings of the texts other than his own. He expects detailed answers and will pick on you in class. All in all, horrible teacher.

Hatch is a very knowledgeable prof. I learned a lot from him! On the flip side, he is an editor and if you are unable to produce a grad student dissertation - he will fail you. On an interesting note, he loves to read erotic tales. Take him if you have good grammar and already possess prior knowledge of the course because he will pick on you!

Comment:
Completely inaudible -mumbles something as though to himself. Don't even bother to express your own opinion about something said in class or write it in an essay -rather stick ONLY to what he says. He'll mark YOUR opinions or any extra research DOWN. Also, I think it's time for him to retire.

Comment:
Simply put, a terrible senile and useless instructor. He picks favorites, goes with them and shuns anyone that isn't one of them. If you don't write what he believes to be the meaning of the work then he'll dock you marks and not give you sufficient reasons for doing so. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON ANYTHING HE INSTRUCTS!

Dr. Hatch is great.He has wonderful TA's who are available for extra help. Dr. Hatch encourages students opinions. Don't take English if you don't want to do the readng and don't want to go to class.

Comment:
I did not like this class. He does choose favourites. He only accepts opinions that are in line with his views, no matter how well you back up your points. Most of the reading material was very dry and dense. I will say that he is very passionate about the material, which is rare amongst most profs. Still I would not take any classes with him again

3 classes with him, and I keep coming back for more. And my grades weren't the best. Why? Simple. He's devoted to teaching. He is passionate about the subject matter. He may be hard (for some people, he won't be), but he makes you work for your grades (unless you're one of those brilliant people who can make A+ without effort). I like him.

Comment:
he definitely expects alot from students. he is a publisher on the side, so that might be why he doesn't put up with unclear writing or anything less than perfect writing. there's not alot of structure in his classes, he touches on a few things on each reading, so you really have to figure alot of things out on your own.

if what you write isnt something he said (and even if it is) he'll find something wrong with it. he thinks women are stupid. i normally get A's or A-'s in english and im getting a C+ from this guy. hes not the worst you take get but hes close.

what a professor should be like. i like the way he reads aloud to the class- it makes the older english clearer, and he goes through everything explaining details that you might not otherwise get. i dont think he's a tough grader, but i do agree that he has favourites.
