Story
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 05-05-17

Prof. Vandiver is brilliant in her in-depth analysis every aspect of Virgil's epic that can be covered in 12 lectures - dominant themes, character portrayal, literary, social and historical context, etc. I have listened to all of Prof. Vandiver's lectures on Greek Tragedy, Greco-Roman mythology and ancient literature. She is well-informed factually, and always reasonable in her opinions, assiduously giving all sides of academic debates on questions of meaning of ancient literature and the possible intentions of ancient authors.
