If I could work through a book alone and write an essay at the end, doing research myself, I wouldn't mind. It's the endless picking apart of every word that makes it dull and lifeless.
Oh God, yes. Shakespeare can stand up to it, and poetry needs to be done like that, but when the book isn't even that good (The Handmiad's Tale, <coughcough>) then it's just plain awful.
Particularly if you teacher insists on spoon-feeding comments on language throughout the entirity of a play that we actually don't have to make many language comments on.
Total teaching time of language = many lessons
Total teaching time of any literary context, examination of themes, historical context, comparison to other works by playwright = no lessons.
