circe

Madeline Miller

“Humbling women seems to me a chief pastime of poets. As if there can be no story unless we crawl and weep.”
Another Miller story that I picked up right after reading "The Song of Achilles". This is a wonderful story as it sews together a myriad of greek myths into one comprehensive novel. Allowing you to learn more about the classic stories, but in a fun and relatable manner. It also paints the usually villainized Circe in a more complex manner, which I love.
