The more I attended my English lectures I understand how you really do have to be slightly mad to study literature not to mention completely open to controversial ideas. Apart from the necessarily history which I do find boring my Lit classes are brilliant, NUIM lectures try to keep it as Interesting as possible. From sexy stokes whipping out a bottle of vino to prove a point regarding ”Confessions of an English opium eater” and drug taking. Too the brilliant Mr Highway giving out free sweets and giving us a hilarious lecture on libertine keeping nothing unexplained or to the imagination. I did not know back in 1st year that English that my lectures would be so filled with drugs, sex, and politics. The reading list is most definitively heavy and not actually complete-able but by god am I glad I decided to do an English degree.
