Margaret's enthusiasm and clear explanation made this experience a delight. She brought the characters to life and I really found it so informative and fascinating.
It even made better sense than the movie. Her presentation style is great.
I am reading A History of the Vikings: Children of Ash and Elm by Neil Price. Price refers to Beowulf several times. It has been many years since I read the epic poem, so I thought it would be good to revisit it. McCurry did not disappoint. She deftly took us through the tale and highlighted the themes that ran through the Viking culture. McCurry emphasized the Christian overtones that applied to the Anglo Saxon culture as well. The overview was very well done.
We have taken Context tours in person previously and this was my first virtual tour. It was well done and I look forward to more in the future.
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.
