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.

An excellent overview, not only of the mythology itself but also various approaches to and ways of thinking about myth. Prof Struck is an engaging teacher, very easy to watch and listen to. This is a tempting hors d'oeuvre, which provokes an urge to learn more - many, many thanks to the creators!

I really enjoyed this course although I'm not sure I would list it as an overview of Greek and Roman Mythology; more of overview of what various poets and scholars of the time thought of mythology. The excellent lectures did help expand how I looked at the various ways of looking at mythology.

This was an extremely interesting class, due in no small part to the professor who was excellent. I learned that there is much more to Greek and Roman mythology than cute little stories about the gods and goddesses. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and will look for more from this professor.

Thank you professor Struck.
I have enjoyed your coursevery much, have learned a lot and have been inspired to re-read with greater attention some of the classics. Your course has been so enjoyable, that I've already signed up for all the other Greek and Roman courses taught at Coursera!

I really love this course. Professor Struck guided us through six main books on Greek and Roman Mythology, all fantastic classics. The best thing in this course is his interpretation, or at least he introduced us to the interpretations of many scholars which gave me much to think about.

Enjoyed every minute of this course. Peter explains things so well and I've learnt so much over the past 10 weeks, I've not always took part in the writing as this isn't my strong area but feel like I've soaked up a lot of new knowledge and I already want to learn more, so thankyou xx

I really enjoyed Prof Struck's excellent teaching of this subject area. I won't lie and say that I looked forward every day to lectures but within minutes of opening up a video - I was transfixed. It certainly has opened up a new area of learning for me and inspired a trip to Greece.

Although this course covered so much material, Prof. Struck did a great job of relating the works to one another, comparing and contrasting the works so that it was easier to learn and retain the information. His manner is relaxed and almost belies his considerable intelligence.

It was a quite experience for me to learn Greek and Roman mythology. I always thought that it would be complicated and hard to understand but with the professor's telling it was like very easy to understand without getting bored. I wish that I could attend a real class :) Thanks

So well-conceived! Works beautifully in this format. I really enjoyed Professor Struck's insights, and I believe that my perspective on ancient Greek and Roman culture has been significantly deepened from what I have learned here. One of the best courses I've ever taken.

This was a great source to understand myths apart from the pure fun that they are. Dissecting and unpacking the history of mythology has made me see myths through a different lens. Peter Struck delivered in a wonderfully neutral way never deviating to his own opinions.

Wonderful course. I learned so much about greek and roman myth and myth in general from it. The lectures were engaging and well paced. The readings were really well chosen and much richer for having listened to the lectures first. I especially loved reading the Odyssey.

Este curso es fantástico. El mejor que he encontrado en Coursera con diferencia. Peter Struck es un orador magnífico y es a la vez lo suficientemente introductorio para los que no saben nada y lo suficientemente intenso para los que ya saben sobre el tema. Magnífico.

Exceptionally interesting, and gives a very broad but clear understanding of the themes of Greek and Roman mythology as well as an overview of what constitutes a myth and the theories behind understanding what the function of myth is to different times and societies.

Great little course, very insightful introduction to Greek and Roman mythology. Learned a lot from the epic poems, stories and tragedies as explained by Peter Struck, whose lectures were clear and whose insightful commentaries almost came to life. I had a lot of fun!

The course provides a wonderfully engaging and throughly edifying introduction to Greek and Roman mythology. Peter Struck achieves exactly what he intends by encouraging the student to go much further and dive headlong into the wonders that mythology have to offer.

This is a fabulous course, it had me enthralled the whole time. It is really good for beginners in myth, I myself had no prior technical experience with myth, other than an interest for the stories. 10/10 would recommend, you will not regret completing this course.

Peter Struck is a legend. And the course is really fun. The only problem is, it is really difficult for foreigners to understand. At least it was for me. I wish you can add more subtitles to this course because it's a great source. Thank you Struck! You're amazing!

Very interesting and well presented by the lecturer - style was engaging and challenging without being over my head. Varied by visuals and maps which enhanced the experience. Highly recommend this course for those who only have a superficial knowledge from before.

Professor Struck is an excellent lecturer. As he said in his conclusion, much of the point of this class is for us to read some terrific works. I thoroughly enjoyed both the videos and the readings. This is a class that rewards the effort to learn the material.

I very much enjoyed Professor Struck's course. His lessons were quick but packed with information. He didn't talk down to his students with high brow knowledge but spoke on the same level as those who desired more in depth understanding of Mythology. Thank you.
