What makes a Great writer? Great writers write books that grip you and will not let go -even late or rather early into the morning!
And the same goes for lecturers.A good lecturer will speak on any subject.
A Great lecturer will speak fluently,
|Mark Twain as lecturer-one can almost hear his satirical observations :-)!|
Of course, I will read even detailed reports, but ...it may take a while LOL!
It is also a bit dry and thus a bit hard going, because of it.
Naturally my knowledge of Greek History is,
and that war in particular :-),
somewhat mistily shrouded in the very distant past (;-),
thus it requires much close attention.
Especially since there are no plays, operas or movies that I know of,
that deal with this part of history-unlike the Caesar and Cleopatra one, ;-)!
So in order to loosen up and refresh my little gray cells -
I turn to lighter fare from time to time.
Such as to historical crime novels (Frank Tallis), previously posted..
|Not This Wheeler - LOL|
The blame in my, on and off again, interest in history - fact or fiction,
lies squarely at the doorstep of that history prof.
Prof. Glaser, wherever you are now, looking down or up (as the case may be)
I thank you for awakening that interest!
