Margaret McCurry’s insights on The Legend of Beowulf were easy to follow and peaked my interest to do some further research. She is informative, entertaining and answered all of our questions. I have already recommended this conversation to my friends.
Enjoyed the lecture. Very informative. Translated it into modern English during my university days & found new research interesting.
Wish the Old English text reading had been a bit longer as I love the sound of what we call Old English that is incomprehensible to the modern ear.
I haven’t read this since high school but wanted to learn about this. Ms McCurry was very enthusiastic and did a very good job retelling the story of Beowulf!

Very quick and rather superficial overview of this great epic poem. But, that being said, it is challenging to condense a work of t his length and depth into 1 hour.
