Comment:
He has a really negative air about him. Reading is mandatory and he takes roll. He gives like 10 short essays which are not on diicult topics but he grades tough.

I actually heard students say they were leaving English as a major because of him. Had I not had other teachers, I probably would have as well.

Can be very confusing at times and if you tie that in with the class being boring, you have a recipe for disaster. While he is not the worst professor at UL, he is surely not the best either. As a prof, I rate him with a C+.

A good teacher, but pushes you to learn and what ever grade you get out of this class will be well earned and not just given to you!

Ahhh I didn't like the guy or his teaching style. Didn't learn much about literature more his opinions about it. I wouldn't retake him for all the tea in China!

Karr is an intelligent teacher. You have to do the reading. There are only a few papers and tests but if you go to class and read, you'll be fine. I found I made an A pretty easily... not to mention I learned a lot and I was very interested in his discussions.

Comment:
I would not recommend Jap Art and Culture because it is misleading. We spent too much time on Yukio Mishima and his books and not enough time on actual art and culture. If he ever decides to drop the tetralogy and focus more on the topic of choice and answer things straight, maybe the class would be better. I wouldn't take it again, though.

Comment:
He's boring, but fair. There is alot of reading, but he goes over the reading in class so it's not really necessary. He's nice and is very willing to give help to anyone who needs it. Pay attention and do the homework or he'll kick you out of class.

I liked some parts of the class, and he's a cool teacher, but he neglects our questions sometimes, cant always give a straight answer, and just...I dont know what to say. Be ready for a tone of work, and pletny of reading. Its rough.

He is the most boring teacher that I have ever had. He does nothing to keep the class interesting. All you do is go in there and sit down and listen to him talk and talk and talk. When it comes to his papers, they are pretty straight forward except for the fact that if you have ONE run-on sentence on your essay, you get and F! Learn your rules!!!

Comment:
He was very short-sided in class discussions. He is very biased towards liberal politics but he will say he has no affiliation. If you bring up anything in a conservative point of view then you are penalized for it.

This class is fairly boring! The teacher will help you in any way that he can but if you need help ask in advance. The assignments suck and the reading is overwhelming.

He requires that you do a lot of work to get an "A" in his class. If you pay attention, do the assignments, and participate; you should get at least a "B". Be forewarned though, he will keep you in class for every last minute if not later; so don't schedule a class across campus unless you don't mind being late.

He grades papers pretty hard but always helps you if you ask. If you go to his office and talk in class he will give you a better grade than those who dont. He has a very different style of teaching and personality. He is pretty easy as long as you try hard.

I found he is pretty good as a teacher. He can be a bit strange at times, but what english teacher at this university isn't. I got an A in the class and that is ok by me.

I guess he knew what he was talking about... but he is quite possibly the most aggravating person alive. He NEVER let class out on time and he relates EVERYTHING in poetry to sex.
