Comment:
Dr. Bagby is quite obviously a very intelligent man, but that said he is a terrible professor. He keeps an air of superiority about him at all times and comes across as condescending. The course isn't that hard as long as you do all the readings and try a little, but don't expect any real help or clear explanations from Bagby.

I took several classes from Dr. Bagby in the mid-90s. I admit when I first took his class, I got my butt kicked but that's because I hadn't learn yet how to learn. Now, I know he's one of the best professors I've ever had. If you all today listen to what he has to say and keep up with your reading, you'll learn lots. Rock on, Dr. Bagby!

Getting an A in this class is impossible and do not count on getting a B either. Avoid him at all costs

Probably the worst Professor I have ever had. Absolutely ridiculous grader, and too stuck up for his own good. Do not take him.

It just seems when you get behind grade wise in the class, you can never catch up.

My favourite professor at HSC. Came in to his classes thinking it was going to be impossible; however, you will do well in any of his courses with a little hard work and by showing some interest.

Getting an A in his class is simply impossible. His grading is ruthless and much of it is based on what he finds to be good writing style. Cant give notes for his life.

Probably the worst professor I have had at Hampden-Sydney. He teaches introductory coarses as if they are graduate coarses. If he is in a bad mood wile grading your paper, you will make a D-, but if he is in a good mood, you'll make a D+. That class sucks.

Comment:
Bagby teaches serious thinking, strenuous reading, and the arduous pleasures of analysis. Bagby's classes are professional in their rigor, and he is the real thing as a teacher of romanticism and American poetry. The complaint that he is "too smart" is a sad reflection on those who make it.

It is IMpossible to get an A in Bagby’s courses!! The only way you will get an A- in his course is if you are psychic, a genius, can brownnose REALLY WELL (you should go on and get your ass-kissing lips ready), or unless you are kin to Bagby!

A standout professor here at HSC but only because he is a completly pretentious and arrogant man. He does not belong here nor does he deserve the priveledge to be here. He embodies the fallacy of tenure and pollutes the good name of Hampden-Sydney!

Comment:
Bagby is very strict, and very difficult, and I do not agree with his political or critical beliefs. However, he has helped make me a better writer through his stringent standards.
