Ms. McCurry is a gifted teacher. This was her very first course, and she was outstanding. her presentation is clear and easy to follow. She provides deep insights into the philosophical and political contributions of the works and how they have influenced modern times both for good and for evil. I will take more courses with her.
I’m a long time fan of the Arthurian Legend. The Once and Future King by T H White and the movie, Camelot really touched me when I was young. I understood both the joy of the idea and the tragedy of human failings and the constant quest for power. Margaret did a wonderful job of presenting this story in the context of the history of the time when the legend was begun and embellished. So many authors have written their own versions of this tale in fiction, poetry and sci-fi. I enjoyed understanding more about the evolution of the many characters. I will be able to read with a more critical and understanding eye. The instructor was enthusiastic and well prepared.
Margaret McCurry is a great storyteller and historian. She brought the magic of Arthurian legends to life with enthusiastic expertise.
For Arthur and Merlin fans, this is a dream. I wish the course would never end. I have long sought a group with a common enthusiasm fir Arthur and Merlin and this is it. Only adjustment would be to extend the number of sessions, thereby allowing for more discussion. Great course, taught beautifully
