Arthur Holmberg knows so much about theater and wants to share it with students. Don't be dissuaded from the class by the students who chose not to read or participate. You can get a lot of the class if you show up and do the work.

Comment:
I have no doubt that Professor Holmberg is very knowledgeable. That being said, in short, he's an old man. He very easily loses his train of thought, rambles on, repeats himself verbatim multiple times during a single class, laughs at length at his own jokes. The class itself is easy, but at the cost of being slow-moving and boring.

Professor Holmberg is AMAZING! One of the greatest professors I have ever had. He's hilarious, and he knows more about the subject than literally anyone else. A very easy class but if you want to learn, you will.

Biggest waste of my time. Yes, the man is a "genius"; he knows his stuff. But he talks like he's telling a story to kindergarteners whilst tangentially talking about BDSM and fallices instead of challenging his students to do in-depth text analysis which THA 100a and 100b are supposed to accomplish. I hate this required course is alwaystaught byhim

Comment:
Too much of a drama king to be a sociology teacher. Thinks EVERYTHING is about sex. Very simplistic analytical reader. Additionally, misunderstands and distorts students' intelligent comments so that they seem stupid. Well meaning, but if you are not into theatre all the time, butt out.

He's hilarious. A choice quote: "I was on the train this morning and I saw a woman wearing a t-shirt that said 'men lie.' I walked up to her and said, 'well, women lie, too! Just read *The Oresteia!*" Brilliant and obviously loves theater, very helpful to his students.

Subtext?!? Difficult at first, but only because he wants the best out of you. Humerous and fun and definitely supports theatre in all of its strange manifestations. Yay for coming to the first Latex Show!
