Micro Mention "Classical Mythology"

Elizabeth Vandiver

I have been on a whole mythology kick for a while now, and I've found that "Classical Mythology" from the Great Courses lectured by Professor Elizabeth Vandiver was very useful for background information when I was reading "Circe."

This course is a great place to get a boilerplate understanding of myth in the western literary canon. The Greek and then Roman traditions would help shape later luminaries such as Shakespeare, Milton, Alighieri, and too many more to list here. So if your aim is to enhance your understanding of the earliest works of the western literary canon, like those writers, this course might be a good start.
