reader í Circe author Madeline Miller ↠ Madeline Miller She loves most Circe must summon all her strength and choose once and for all whether she belongs with the gods she is born from or the mortals she has come to loveWith unforgettably vivid characters mesmerizing language and page turning suspense Circe is a triumph of storytelling an intoxicating epic of family rivalry palace intrigue love and loss as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world littlebrownco 4455 ⭐Full review on my Blog The Dacian She Wolf 🐺”Witches are not so delicate”Witches are raw power And raw power through its definition is not delicateBeing honest right now I have never been a huge fan of Greek mythology I used to be obsessed with Egyptian mythology and fascinated by the Celtic one But Greek mythology seemed all Greek to me pun intended Not because it was unattractive but just because I never understood it properly I felt like it was a never ending tale too elaborate for my capacity of understanding But this book written by Madeline Miller Circe helped the eyes of my mind flush open with understanding and for this I am thankful Circe is introduced to us as a nobody She is neither a full Goddess in the true meaning of the concept nor a mudblooded mortal She is a Goddess the daughter of the mighty Sun the Titan Helios and the beautiful nymph Perse but the mundanity of her voice and the inutility of her presence made her a lesser Goddess in other Gods' point of view even lesser than universally considered She is an outcast even in her own family and as hard as she wants to change this she’s bound by unseen powers not to Fates duhThe book expands some universal and social ideas the road of an outcast hero searching for love in a loveless life feminist actions abnormal for the collective mentality of the time vengeance and forgiveness So many Starting with the road of an outcast hero all is there to say is if you are not outcasted then you don’t suffer and if you don’t suffer you have no drive to make something worth out of your life In this case an infinite immortal life Circe’s exile on the isle of Aiaia makes her realise the infinite power that she possesses within her and everywhere around her It all starts with a plant It all ends with the same plant Pharmaka is associated in the book with witchcraft The power of the herbs to heal is magical In my native language Romanian there is a word similar to the word pharmaka and its meaning from the book We say farmece witchery spells When someone does farmece to you that person casts an unseen and unfelt spell over you both metaphorically and practically speaking Circe’s power is to tame the so feared pharmaka and use it without being afraid Circe is a powerful individual but she gains this power from her wisdom the wisdom of time ””You are wise” he said ”If it is so” I said ”it is only because I have been a fool enough for a hundred lifetimes”” She is a free spirit and she has her father’s roots of pride She is her own master and she doesn't agree with the ancient etiuettes sung by bards and stuck for eternity in people’s minds „Humbling women seems to me a chief pastime of poets As if there can be no story unless we crawl and weep” This shows the power of freedom she raised in herselfCirce is powerful yes Circe is uniue Circe is herself She gives us a valuable lesson on how to live free and how to live sufficiently She is a figure of self respect and self care and she says with unspoken words that if you want to live happily you have to live true to yourself And as to paraphrase a uote from the book as my own strong impression of Circe however gold she shines do not forget her fireBook inspired

Madeline Miller ↠ Circe author Madeline Miller doc

Circe author Madeline MillEr occult craft tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology including the Minotaur Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus the murderous Medea and of course wily OdysseusBut there is danger too for a woman who stands alone and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians To protect what This is a beautiful book; it is flawless and intelligent I do not have a single criticism for this fantastic piece of writing I loved it Circe chronicles the life of a lesser god She is the daughter of the mighty God Helios the living embodiment of the sun She is born without any particular talents or powers She exists in the shadows of her developed brothers and sisters She does not shine in such spectacular company However gifts come in many different forms and those with hidden talents are overlooked and devalued More often than not uiet people are forgotten about and there worth ill considered in all walks of existence Circe’s family never saw what she could become Power is important though sometimes having none teaches one a greater lesson nothing is worth having unless it has been earned As such Circe wills herself into power as she discovers her affinity for witchcraft especially the art of transformationHer family banish her from their company for her use of such a lowly art and in doing so they set her free She finds herself in her exile On her island home she finds a paradise not a prison She becomes one with nature and finds company with lions and wolves Centuries pass ages pass and eventually some rather important characters come her way She meets Hermes and Athena Icarus and his farther Daedalus and Odysseus a man who changes her life and causes her to make a very powerful decision that leads this book into such an excellent conclusion “But in a solitary life there are rare moments when another soul dips near yours as stars once a year brush the earth Such a constellation was he to me” Circe offers a huge story a story that spans generations and includes many Greek heroes and gods Such is the nature of godhood of immortality When life goes on forever many notable people cross one’s path And despite the huge number of famous characters here none of it felt forced it all slotted perfectly into Circe’s life There are so many myths that intertwine with Circe like the story of the Minotaur and the fall of Icarus though despite the famous nature of many of them they don’t for a second overshadow her She met Prometheus when she was young and decided that her life would not be the same as the other gods she was going to be her own woman And this is a book about her finding the most ultimate form of freedom I could not recommend it highly I really liked The Song of Achilles though this surpassed it in every way I really hope to see from this author in the future Five fantastic stars You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree
