It's finally time for Circe! In this Mini Myth I cover two of the stories involving Circe, and talk a bit about Madeline Miller's book.
A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
