I greatly enjoyed this course. It rekindled my interest in Chaucer and increased my appreciation for the Canterbury Tales. Margaret is a true delight. An enthusiastic teacher and fan of Chaucer, she provides interesting insights in an entertaining, charming style. I look forward to taking her future courses.
I signed up for this series to fill in a gap in my education & quickly became entranced by Chaucer & his Tales. The credit goes to Margaret McCurry, who shared insights into the stories, with great clarity & enthusiasm. She also provided rich background info on Middle Ages in England: humor, dress, role of women & clergy. Margaret is such a gifted presenter, such a joy to listen to, that I will be signing up for any Context courses she teaches.
I have taken a number of courses and seminars with Context, and Ms. McCurry is the best lecturer I have had. She expands the subject to consider related literary works and historical context. She is articulate and displays a love and enthusiasm for her subject. Her analysis of the material is insightful.
This was an excellent course which held my interest throughout.
This was part 2 of Chaucer. I know most of the history, culture and political and social system. Notwithstanding that, I learned more about Chaucer writing , plus I knew little about The Knight's Tail. I learned a lot about that and more about the book in general.
