Omtale fra forlaget

When I was born, the name for what I was did not exist. Circe is the daughter of Helios, the sun god, and Perse, a beautiful naiad. Yet from the moment of her birth, she is an outsider in her father's halls, where the laughter of gossiping gods resounds. Named after a hawk for her yellow eyes and strange voice, she is mocked by her siblings - until her beloved brother Aeëtes is born. Yet after her sister Pasiphae marries King Midas of Crete, Aeëtes is whisked away to rule his own island. More isolated than ever, Circe, who has never been divine enough for her family, becomes increasingly drawn to mortals - and when she meets Glaucus, a handsome young fisherman, she is captivated. Yet gods mingle with humans, and meddle with fate, at their peril. In Circe, Madeline Miller breathes life once more into the ancient world, with the story of an outcast who overcomes scorn and banishment to transform herself into a formidable witch. Unfolding on Circe's wild, abundant island of Aiaia, where the hillsides are aromatic with herbs, this is a magical, intoxicating epic of family rivalry, power struggles, love and loss - and a celebration of female strength in a man's world.

Bokomtaler

Circe er en fantasyroman skrevet av amerikanske Madeline Miller. Den forteller historien om den greske gudinnen Kirke, på en ny og moderne måte. Den originale historien finner vi hos Homer. Der er Kirke gudinnen Odyssevs ble hos i ett år og som sa han måtte binde seg selv til masten da han skulle forbi sirenene. Kirke er datter av guden Helios (solen) og nymfen Perse, det vil si at hun er en av titanene.
Det var utrolig morsom å lese denne boken. I tillegg til Kirkes historie får vi blant annet høre om monsteret Scylla, Minotauren, Zevs og Athene. De fleste historiene var kjente for meg og det var gøy å slå opp Kirkes historie underveis og se at til og med små detaljer stemmer med Homer. Det er ikke så lenge siden jeg leste om Jason og argonautene for eksempel, eller for den saks skyld om Oddyssevs familie Penolope og Telemakhos som kommer og bor hos Kirke etter Odyssevs er død.
