Quite a narcissistic, self absorbed individual who lives in a delusion of grandeur wherein she is God's gift to English students while in reality she is rigid. distant and closed-minded. Her analysis is often superficial and without insight. Unable to connect, she objectifies students and makes an otherwise enjoyable topic a testament to her own worth, not the students or literary masters. Once I reached college level, I had to unlearn and relearn much of what she taught in order to be on par with my peers. Like the Emperor with No Clothes, Ms. Mechmann makes her place in society based on an illusion.
