"Circe" is a novel by Madeline Miller that tells the story of the titular character, a lesser-known figure in Greek mythology who possesses the power of witchcraft. The novel explores the themes of power, identity, and the struggle for self-acceptance in a world that often values conformity and submission.

Circe is the daughter of the mighty Titan, Helios, and his wife, Perse. However, unlike her parents, Circe is not known for her strength or beauty. Instead, she discovers her own power when she turns to the world of mortals for companionship and realizes that she has the power of witchcraft, which allows her to transform others into monsters.

As she hones her craft on a deserted island, Circe meets many famous figures from Greek mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, Medea, and Odysseus. However, her power and her independence threaten the established order of the gods, and she unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods. To protect what she loves most, Circe must choose whether she belongs with the gods she is born from or with the mortals she has come to love.

The novel explores themes of isolation, self-discovery, and self-acceptance, as Circe grapples with her own identity and seeks to find a place for herself in a world that often sees her as an outsider. Through her encounters with other figures from Greek mythology, the novel also explores the complex relationships between gods and mortals, and the ways in which power can be used to both create and destroy.
