    although the narator seems awkward, I grew fond of him over time the lectures are very information dense, so I actually listened to them twice but boy do I absolutely love this audiobook amazing explanations of some of my favorite works from history so much .

    This is another lecture in the modern scholar series I enjoyed Professor Shutt s previous lectures so I decided to give this one a try He mainly uses literary texts to explore the cultures and as such doesn t address the Druids very much The Druids transmitted all their information orally and so much of it is lost He discusses many of the Norse texts such as the Prose Edda or the Saga of the Volsungs Shutt then moves on to a discussion of Beowulf and finally the troubadour culture of sout This is another lecture in the modern scholar series I enjoyed Professor Shutt s previous lectures so I decided to give this one a try He mainly uses literary texts to explore the cultures and as such doesn t address the Druids very much The Druids transmitted all their information orally and so much...

    While the subject matter promised to be intriguing and was, for the most part the professor s cadence drove me right out of my skull He has a fondness of circular sentences that ramble and eventually find their point long after I ve stopped listening to what he was saying Very much like some of my least favorite professors in college, I found myself bored by some of the most interesting material Norse mythology is one of my favorite subjects and Professor Shutt managed to make me tune out w While the subject matter promised to be intriguing and was, for the most part th...

    The reading at first felt a little stilted and awkward, but Professor Shutt totally grew on me I was laughing out loud by the end his rendition of Sir Gawain and other legends was probablyentertaining than reading the originals I m a sucker for anything Celtic, Euro lit history, etc so this was r...

    This work caught my interest while browsing the lecture series at my library I actually noticed it some time back, but then it was checked out and I couldn t fully remember the title When I finally saw it in the library again, I felt a bit of trepidation because of the lecturer, having listened to his Lore of the Stars The Mythological Narrative of the Night Sky the entry on goodreads currently has his name wrong and doesn t link to his...

    This was fantastic He goes over Nordic Icelandic and Celtic mythologies through their writings, both being my ancestral roots I came away with a better sense of the overview than specifics He does summarize certain tales, but I found it hard to remember or even follow them completely But I do value the general takeaway that Nordic mythology and culture is, or was, very grim and dark while Celtic could be dark but wascomical and lighthearted He describes them as exuberant sense of fun This was fantastic He goes over Nordic Icelandic and Celtic mythologies through their writings, both being ...

    This started out rousingly, bogged down much of the way through the Germans into a dense literature review, and revived towards the end of the overly brief review of Celtic literature which left out worthwhile comparisons of Roman Celtic poets , Catullus comes to mind of Celts differences with their Mediterranean and German contemporaries.Still, it is an interesting cultura...

    It is a good course It has its moments but is very repetitious of other courses I have listened to him record.

    The lecturer focuses on a few key tales from early civilizations in Northern Europe I learned a lot about Celtic and Old German history, languages, and values Professor Shutt s storytelling style was wonderful It not only gave some complex mythscoherence but also made the stories come to life He made the heroes and villains seem endearingly human The only annoying element from my point of view was that the volume of his voice occasionally dropped very, very low, which was less than id The lecturer focuses on a few key tales from early civilizations in Northern Europe I learned a lot about Celtic and Old Germ...
