    Circe by Madeline Miller

    -: Little Brown and Company, 2018. -. Hardback. New/-. -. A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 New York Times bestseller "manages to be both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, The New York Times). In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves. Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her 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 Odysseus. But 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 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 love. With 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. | 400 pages | 160 x 236 x 33mm | 590g.

    Soft cover, 21 cm, 160 pp., 255 g. // Ποια ήταν και ποιο ρόλο έπαιζε η πρόγονος της Νύμφης Μέλισσας, μιας εκ των δύο τροφών του Διός, γιατί ονομάζεται Μέλισσα η μύστης της Δήμητρας που κατασπαράσσεται επειδή δεν αποκαλύπτει τα ιερά μυστικά, γιατί οι ιέρειες θηλυκών θεοτήτων ονομάζονται Μέλισσες, γιατί οι μέλισσες αποτελούν έμβλημα πόλεων και απεικονίζονται σε τόσα νομίσματα, γιατί το μέλι γίνεται τροφή θεών και προστατευομένων τους και αποκτά περίοπτη θέση στα λατρευτικά έθιμα; Οι απαντήσεις σ' αυτά τα ερωτήματα δίνονται με μια περιδιάβαση στις πηγές, αρχαίες και σύγχρονες, που αρχίζει στην Κρήτη και παρακολουθεί τις μετακινήσεις της Μ(μ)έλισσας σε διάφορα ιερά κέντρα της αρχαιότητας.
