Greek Mythology


Here is a fascinating selection of books on Greek mythology ranging from the old and new.

1. Circe by Madeline Miller

Circe by Madeline Miller

Poetic fiction based on the fascinating story of the peculiar daughter of the sun god, Helios. Choosing to build relationships with mortals on earth, she discovers her power of witchcraft, transforming enemies into monsters.

Zeus banishes her to an island where she perfects her talent for witchcraft. However she is cast as someone who must be tamed and choose between her God family and the mortals she loves.

The book itself relays many analogies of being true to one’s self and discovering our own magic and abilities. It also explores what is means to be a powerful women amongst powerful men and acknowledges that woman often cannot enjoy a similar status to successful men. Instead she is viewed as a scary sorceress.

A unique story created by Madeline Miller — if you love Greek mythology, you’ll love this.
