Circe- Madeline Miller

Circe- Madeline Miller

  • Retelling myths from female, outsider perspective. Similiar in this way to The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood or The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker.
  • Power of empathy instead of seeking fame or political power.
  • The patriarchal and cruel society of Olympian gods is reflected in Odysseys and the mortals.
  • Questions whether heroes of myth were actually heroic. It’s an example of how History is Written by the Winners.
