This class was amazing. Robert Cohen is extremely knowledgable and enuthusiastic about the material which makes the class develop those same attitudes. There is a lot of reading but less work in class- only discussions which are very interesting and eye-opening. Expect a lot of essays but Cohen is a very fair grader. Everyone should take a class with Cohen at some point at Middlebury!

The Beast in the Jungle is a hard, interactive seminar that focuses on challenging books that speak about the mind and the human experience. Constant reading is required as you have to read a book a week. 3 essays are required throughout the course and graded fairly but hardly. Overall the course is worth it, but be ready to read.

This was a very fulfilling course. You will exit this course with 2 to 3 short stories as well as a pretty deep connection to the other students in this course as everyone accompanies each other on this story-writing journey. The assigned short stories we read were very interesting and the professor always had insightful comments (although his handwriting was sometimes hard to read). I wish I had gotten more time to talk with the instructor outside of class because he is very passionate about the subject and really aims to help. I definitely recommend whether you are a habitual writer or not!
