Perspective. I can almost imagine how Madeline Miller decided to write her novel titled, Circe. She was re-reading Homer’s Odyssey and got to thinking about Circe after reading the part about Circe throwing a spell that turned men into pigs. Miller wondered what life was like from Circe’s perspective, and that’s what readers can enjoy in this creative and finely written novel. By writing in the first person, Miller brings Circe to life in ways that gave clear voice to this perspective. I was thoroughly entertained.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
