Realism and Romance

The other day we had a student come in who was interested in exploring English as a major.  Being the resident English alumna, my co-worker directed the student to me.

We’re currently in the middle of fall registration.  He sat down to look through some of the introductory English course offerings.

Student:  How about Realism and Romance?

Me:  Well, what do you want to know about it?

Student:  Did you take it?  What was it about?

Me:  Well let’s see what the course description says…

<Course description:  Realism and Romance.>

Me:  Ummm…

Student:  Well what is ‘realism’ exactly?

Me:  Mmm…mmm…I remember there was some reading in that class.

Student:  Thanks a lot.

Apparently the class was very memorable.
