A wonderful topic, a great review.
Greek and Roman Mythology – Coursera
Greek and Roman mythology is fascinating, in many ways it is at the core of many Western traditional stories. Even today we are enchanted by such tales of heroes, monsters, errant gods, and the goings on of those far removed and yet ever close. Hercules, Odysseus, the Trojan horse, Oedipus, and much more. The terms have fallen into modern usages – An odyssey denoting an epic journey, a Herculean task, a Trojan horse for a gift which is not all it seems. Such tales spawned others – and in many ways influence modern heroic fiction.
I’ve studied Classics in the past – although it was more for the historical perspective and so this course really appealed. I’ve also studied with Coursera – an online organisation which offers courses from a variety of sources, including the University of Pennsylvania who provide this particular course.
