Not only was the subject matter extremely interesting but Dr. Stasiowski was passionate, very knowledgeable of Levi's ideas and biography as well as the nuances of the Italian language and most entertaining in terms of her overall presentation. It was simply put...an excellent conversation !
Dr. Stasiowski's presentation was extraordinary- her depth of knowledge of Primo Levi and the way she highlighted his influence by Dante, etc. was mesmerizing. The program was a real highlight among highlights. I will look for other classes by her. What a great experience!
This was a great seminar. Very moving experience. I wonder if Primo Levi knew Carlo Levi as they were living at same time and in Italy when war began. Carlo Levi was exiled for his political protest but did not suffer the indignities that Primo Levi did of course. Will the lecturer offer Dante classes again.,
This was a polished performance, well researched and academic, yet presented with a very personal and engaging touch - eminently well suited to the material.
