In this episode, Douglas Cowie and his guest, Classicist Hannah Bean, discuss Circe by Madeleine Miller. The novel reimagines and retells the story of one of the characters Odysseus encounters in The Odyssey of Homer, and the discussion looks both at the roots of the story, other tellings of it, and some of the specifics of how Miller imagines these roots into a contemporary novel.
