Great class. Very enthusiastic about what he teaches. I wasn't looking forward to the class. But it was probably the best educational experience I've had so far in university.

Comment:
Auksi is great at what he is paid to do. Teach the sheer and obvious basics of the texts which are being studied. While many students who are unsure of their english experience may appreciate his approach. Many students may find themselves staring in awe at the sadly obvious and elementary information being doled out.

Comment:
Can't believe how many students loved this prof. He loves what he teaches, yes, but if he doesn't like you - you're dunzo. He picks his favorites from day one, and only directs questions to the same 5 students. Even after going to him for help, it seemed impossible to improve essay marks. I've never gotten such low marks on essays. Be warned!

a very nice man! he's a great marker, and he basically reads all poems (even long poems ilke Paradise Lost) in class, so you don't have to do your readings at home!

Nice guy, very approachable but your mark does not depend on him. It is all dependent on your TA and your ability to keep up with the readings. Final exam was rough. The course material was interesting though

Great prof. Made the poetic theory readings relevant by applying them to poetry we studied in class. He's great during office hours - you'll be significantly smarter by the time you leave.

Comment:
It seems like he teaches his Honours-level courses competently, but I got the impression that he dumbed things down for 020E, which made both his lectures and the course material suffer. Class wasn't particularly enthralling. He's a caring and helpful professor, but 020E REALLY isn’t his strong suit. Other sections' lectures were much more helpful.

Comment:
Extremely well educated and read, initially intimidating, and something of a formalist, bordering at times on pedantry. That said, a wonderfully clear and approachable lecturer and person. Does not consciously use his undeniable credentials for the purpose of intimidation, and has no problem lecturing to an undergraduate audience. Great prof.

Prof. Auksi is one of the best teachers I've had in my whole educational career. He knows...well..basically everything about everything; very interesting, very helpful -- his classes are challenging but worth it -- as long as you show you're trying you'll do fine. but pay attention and do the readings!!!

Comment:
There was so much course material for 224 that it was often presented as a blizzard of information. This may be considered daunting, However; Professor Auksi had such a fascinating and enigmatic way of teaching the material, it was very easy to be drawn to his eccentricity. Students should consider themselves lucky to have him as a mentor. I did!

Maybe one of the last "old school" professors, a shame. He brings Oxford and Cambridge to Western.

I can't appreciate enough the comments that he gave about my essay. They can really help me to become a better writer. He cares about his students and that's the most important thing about professors.
