I went to a college full of professors I loved and respected, but Mr. Devito would still rank very high on the list of educators who greatly affected my life. Just the greatest.

Honestly one of the best teachers I have ever had. DeVito can completely change the way you write and force you to develop your own voice and while his class is difficult and grading is not easy, he rewards hard work. Nothing is ever told to you like "this is a symbol" or "you must know this as an example of this theme," he leads discussions but gives every an opportunity to contribute over the year. I cannot wait to have him again next year!

Michael Devito is one of those rare teachers that changes your life. Even after all these years, he sticks out as one of the most intelligent and insightful teachers I've ever had. He treats you as an adult. If you act like a child, he will simply remove you.
As a former engineer/hard science major, Mr. Devito is the reason why I retained a love for reading and writing and learned the importance of it. His class is not easy, but it is very enriching.

I miss his phallic interpretations :( He will open your eyes to themes and motifs and basic literary analysis in such a way that you will never be able to detach yourself from that perspective while r

Devito's funny, charismatic, and will demand the best from you. If you're willing to work, he'll get you to demand the best from yourself as well. A hard grader, but improves your writing drastically.
