Publisher's Summary

One of the Modern Scholar's most popular lecturers, Professor Timothy B. Shutt of Kenyon College examines the contributions of the peoples of northern Europe through their vibrant literary legacy. As Professor Shutt's textual analysis reveals, Celtic and Germanic values shine through these works, exhibiting such characteristics as courage, self-control, and respect for women. As listeners will find, the legacy of the European Northlands formed a cultural pattern that continues to this day.

    "Sometimes Good sometimes not so good"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Definitely the narrator, change chapter 7.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Voice was not conducive to listening even irritating at times


    Do you think The Modern Scholar: Celts and Germans needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Change narrators, the presentation,


    Any additional comments?

    It appeared to me whoever prepared the lectures knew the subject matter for the most part. However there were times it was simply disjointed or the narrator would drone on with lists of names as if reading from a shopping list. Chapter 7 was an absolute bore by comparison to the Great Courses lecture " King Arthur: History and Legend" by Prof Dorsey Armstrong.This lecture and presentation may be ok for high school students but it lacks a bit for adult or college students and learners.My overall rating of 3 stars was because the course has interesting parts but it just as easily could have been 2 stars. It was a flip of the coin and 3 stars won.
