Course Title: Three by Mark Twain: Has America Been Missed? (Winter Term 2023)
David is a brilliant teacher with a deep knowledge of the life and writing of Mark Twain. It has been an absolute pleasure to have participated in this course.
David designed this class to lead us on a trip through Twain's development as a writer, using three central books but relating what we read to the rest of Twain's writing and speaking tours.
David deeply understands Mark Twain and uses that understanding to supplement the books, putting them in context and adding information about what was going on with Mark Twain.
Course Title: Robert Penn Warren’s All the King’s Men (Fall Term 2022)
A very skillful teacher. Respectful and engaging. Gave everyone a chance to contribute
Fabulous course - perhaps the most enjoyable OSHER course I've taken and I've taken a lot! Bravo David
