Well thought out well presented. I feel I have gained a very knowledgeable and thorough understanding of both Greek and Roman mythology and their historical gods and goddesses from taking this course.
I loved this course. It covers material that is generally available to those who can afford an expensive private education. It was a great way to keep myself occupied during the coronavirus lockdown.

Professor Struck's objective, stated at the end of the course, is to encourage participants to read widely on Greek and Roman myths. In this he is successful, because, if you don't read the texts, you would have very little idea of what is being discussed in the video lectures and asked about in the tests. For my tastes, the video lectures reduced these classical myths to North American vernacular and had far too much tautology. If you were to read the transcript alone you would find them indecipherable.
However, I will give Professor Struck his due,: in my case he achieved his objective and I shall continue reading this fascinating genre.

Professor Stuck chose interesting poets and reading material. I was thrilled to finally read The Odyssey in its entirety! I feel that I have a better knowledge of Greek and Roman myths as a result of this course. My only suggestion for improvement is with regard to the quizzes. Some of the questions could only be answered by reading the materials, but the reading materials were not required. There were definitely some questions that were not covered in the lectures. I would recommend updating the questions accordingly to ensure that they cover the materials presented during the lectures.

The transcript is not good at all and need to be proofread. Despite that, it was nice to get back into interpreting myth, since I haven't had much practice since my undergraduate program.

Its a great course, however when I signed up for it I thought I had not taken it before so Ive been trying to unenroll but it wont let me.

The way peter talks is very boring. Also i thought i would learn alot about the greek and roman gods. Not about some weird filosifers.
