When I was born, the name of what I was didn't exist.
Circe is the daughter of Helios, the sun god, and Perse, a beautiful naiad.
However, from the moment of her birth, she is a stranger in her father's chambers, where the laughter of the gossiping gods resounds.
Named for a hawk by his yellow eyes and strange voice, her brothers mock her until her beloved brother Aeëtes is born.
However, after his sister Pasiphae marries King Midas of Crete, Aeëtes is forced to rule his own island.
More isolated than ever, Circe, who has never been divine enough for her family, is increasingly attracted to mortals, and when she meets Glaucus, a handsome young fisherman, she is captivated.
However, the gods mingle with humans, and mess with fate, at their own risk.
In Circe, Madeline Miller breathes life once again into the ancient world, with the story of an outcast who overcomes contempt and exile to become a formidable witch.
Settling on the wild and abundant island of Aiaia de Circe, where the hillsides are scented with herbs, this is a magical and intoxicating epic of family rivalry, power struggles, love and loss - and a celebration of female strength in the world of men.
