I haven't had either of those profs but I have heard that James King is supposed to be excellent. I also took this class and I must say it was also phenomenal! I had Dr. Sarah Brophy. It was a really interesting ourse and she was a great prof; I'm not going to lie though, I ended up doing poorly in it but I can honestly say it was all because of the TA. That's just the luck of the draw. Also, I really hated most of the material she chose for the class (she's taught it the past 2 years and used the same material in both years). It was all modern stuff which isn't my thing but as I said, the course was still excellent. Dr. King will pick his own new material, though, so it should be interesting! Def take the class though! Also, I recommend English 1A03 (the shorter genre), it was my first ever class and I loved
it. They were both great experiences. Good luck!
