Last semester I took German 5600, where we read five German plays. All of them, if not outright depressing (especially Before Dawn by Gerhart Hauptmann and The Man Outside by Berthold Brecht), had downer endings.

This semester I'm taking another 500-level German lit class, and we're starting with Frank Wedekind's Spring Awakening. I already knew the basic plot, so I asked Olivia (the professor) if we were going to read anything with a happy ending in this class.

Her reply? "Well, some of the poems we'll be reading later on are really beautiful!"

Thanks, Olivia. I'm so looking forward to this class now.

At least we get to actually watch a movie this semester.
