CIRCE - Madalene Miller

“Circe” by Madeline Miller is a mesmerizing retelling of Greek mythology centered around the character of Circe, the enchantress known from Homer’s “Odyssey.” The novel offers a rich and immersive exploration of Circe’s life, from her childhood as the daughter of the Titan Helios to her exile on the island of Aiaia.

Born to the powerful but indifferent Titan Helios and the nymph Perse, Circe finds herself an outcast among the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus due to her lack of divine beauty and voice. However, she discovers her talent for witchcraft and sorcery, which becomes both her salvation and her curse.

Exiled to the island of Aiaia as punishment for her actions, Circe embraces her solitude and immerses herself in her magical craft. Over the centuries, she encounters a host of mythological figures, including Daedalus, Hermes, Odysseus, and others. Through these encounters, Circe navigates themes of love, betrayal, power, and identity while coming to terms with her own sense of self.

Miller’s prose is lyrical and evocative, painting a vivid portrait of ancient Greece and its pantheon of gods and heroes. “Circe” is a captivating tale that offers a fresh perspective on a classic myth, celebrating the strength and resilience of a complex and compelling female character. Through Circe’s journey of self-discovery and transformation, readers are treated to a timeless and empowering story of courage, redemption, and the power of the human spirit.
