Comment:
Years after graduating I encountered an alumni at the supermarket who had a story to tell about Pauly: she was at a dinner party at his home and witnessed how he humiliated his partner about string beans in front the guests. She said it was an appalling display of chauvinism and petulance.

Comment:
One of the worst English professors that I've had. He spends a lot of time rambling about useless things and manages to make his material boring. I missed an exam because I was sick and he's been very rude to me. He is, however, a fairly easy grader.

I don't know what everyone's complaining about. He may be a little moody sometimes but his personality is interesting. The reading material, papers, tests and grading are really easy. Easiest A ever

Easy and interesting readings. Not much work involved other than two short papers and two longer ones. Grades papers a little hard but grades quizes and tests really easy. I personally thought he was one of the better English Profs at the UD, and I am an ENGL major, so I've had my share of them :)

THIS MAN STOOD BY ME WHEN I FILLED OUT THE EVALUATION AND COLLECTED THEM HIMSELF! He enjoys squashing better students but he loves the dumb ones. If you don't write like 10 year old you won't get an A. Never disagree with him!

No problems with the man...do the readings, participate some in class, and you'll do fine...he can be an ass, but i guess it's worse when he has absolute control over your grade....

Comment:
I took his course 3 years ago, and I still think he is the worst prof I've had at DE. The sad part is that he is Associate Chair of the english dept. Maybe his miserable attitude is why we cant attract more profs and finally have enough eng courses.

he punishes the smarter students while praising and rewarding the lame ones. he will interrupt and cut you off. he seems to dislike strong women and insightful students. i was angry after almost every class.

He is without a doubt the WORST professor I've ever had at UD. I learned less than nothing: going to class every day just made me dumber.

Interrupts students who have a point, lets others ramble. Lectures pointless. ****eonholes you into a grade after the first exam. Readings interesting.

Not the easiest teacher, but a pretty simple B, LOVED the readings, he makes them semi-interesting. Can be boring at times, but overall a good class.
