"It is a symbol of Irish art. The cracked lookingglass of a servant." -- James Joyce
We had to write short literature reviews for a comparative public policy class. Mine was ~15 pages long, and I'm sure the average was ~11-12 pages. The class was larger than usual, but let's say there were 20 people. I feel bad for any professor who has to read through ~220-240 pages, of material written by either senior undergrads or first year masters students, in a couple of weeks.
