One of the best courses I've taken at Middlebury. Pavlos is a fantastic lecturer; every day, he would just come into class and talk off the top of his head for 75 minutes. It is truly incredible how passionate and knowledgeable he is about the material. Grading-wise the course was very easy. We had a midterm and a final (both passage recognition), as well as, if memory serves, one paper the entire semester. If I were to criticize anything, it would be the fairly lackluster discussion sessions, but despite being boring, these still deepened my understanding of the material. Overall, this is a very low pressure course on some very valuable material, taught by a brilliant professor.
