I had Proff Nass about 10 years ago. I took the class because I had to. Anyway, I never knew I could love the Chaucer! I though he was brilliant and with a wicked, dry sense of humor. I have no idea if he is still teaching at Hofstra. I assume not because there are no ratings for him. If he is …more there, TAKE HIS CLASS! less

This class was a waste of my time. This professors exams were awful and had nothing to do with half of what we did i in class. He puts terms on the tests that have nothing to do with shakespeare. I learned how to be bored in this class and get a crappy grade.

He's a relatively nice guy, he's funny, but he's a really tough grader. Gives pop quizzes and will not help you if you failed a bunch of them. Very inflexible with grades, he's not willing to compromise. An English major can pass with him, but you need to work pretty hard.

Unless you enjoy difficult exams, absurdly graded papers, pop quizzes, and rude demeanor in a classroom. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROFESSOR. I think that he has a great deal of knowledge on Shakespeare however he is not open to anybody else's interpretation. VERY hard grader and he absolutely doesn't …more appreciate criticism. less

This Professor ruined my GPA. I am an avid Shakespeare reader and still managed to do poorly. He doesn't grade your papers with what you write, but HOW you write it. He purposely finds ways to give you a bad grade and doesn't recognize effort. He also gives blasphemous terms in his tests that have …more nothing to do with Shakespeare or the plays! AVOID! less

Terrible teacher! He yells at students for asking for help and is of no help. Terrible attitude and discourages the smart people in class to participate so that he can make the stupid people feel stupider.I hate him and never will advise anyone to take him. I loved Shakespeare, and now I hate it. …more Screw his terms on the test too! Irrelevance! less

If you like Shakespeare, this man will ruin it for you. He purposely put very ambiguous passages on his exams to make you fail. He is one of those professors who see's his students as ants and he is just waiting with his magnifying glass to burn them all in terms of their GPA's

Awful teacher. The class was a waste of time for me and I love Shakespeare. I thought with all of my Shakespeare background that I would get above a B+...this man basically destroyed my hopes for a decent grade. I had read every play in the class before and I still managed to get a C- on the mid …more tern. He is obviously failing people on purpose. less

Not a fan, Shakespeare is not a very easy subject though so that could be the problem. Take him if you love the subject. You read a lot of plays but i found them all online so i saved money. Quite a bit of writing. He tries to make it fun but he's not very good at it. I respect him as a teacher but …more he's not for everyone. less
