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.

Highly recommended.This is a very good introduction to the topic. You will do a lot of reading, so expect to put time aside to relax and escape to the ancient world. It was not only time consuming and challenging, it was a great deal of fun!

When I was a fresh man in college I took writing course talking about Greek and Roman literatures. This course is a nice re-visit of what I read before and did give me a deeper understanding and other perspectives in regard to the stories.

Great course if you want to dig a bit into some big classics like The Aeneid or The Odyssey. You'll know about myths and their different ways of interpretation. If you're interested in Greek and Roman Mythology, you'll like it.

It is a very good course. Peter is a very good teacher. He tells all these stories with passion and we can feel it. I learned a lot. But is the beggining of a new world. Research, reseach, research. Thanks for the oppurtunity!

Great class! The instructor was very knowledgeable and his ability to engage the listener and convey thought provoking insights, interpretations and analogies not only maintained interest but peaked curiosity about mythology.

This was an excellent course which I highly recommend; insightful, entertaining, easy to follow but still in-depth analyses - and it teaches you an awful lot about the subject. Prof Struck is an excellent lecturer. Thank you!

A unique view into Greek and Roman mythology which includes various theories treating the concept of "myth". This course is not a simple re-telling of familiar stories but a critical review of Homer, Hesiod, Vergil and Ovid.

I am a psychiatrist with strong interest in psychoanalysis. I have never had a course in ancient mythology before and I am amazed, how good this was. You have to read a lot, in order to finish it, but it definitely worth it.
