A portrait study of Circe, the cunning and dangerous goddess as seen in Homer’s The Odyssey.
In the classic epic, we meet Circe in Book 10 as Odysseus’ men enter her hall deep in the woods of Aeaea. She sings sweetly, luring them in like a siren and proceeds to seduce them with wine and food before transforming the men into beasts. Known for her intelligence and mastery of magic and potions, the goddess has been known to outwit both Gods and mortals alike. Only with the help of Hermes does Odysseus manage to resist her magic.
