Circe Gossip

Spotted... on Mount Olympus or Asgard. xoxo Gossip Shmoop

In Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, the free lovin' Lady Brett Ashley is compared to the seductive Circe. (This is not a good thing.)

The dangerous and seductive Queen Cersei of A Game of Thrones kind of reminds us of another dangerous and seductive lady with a very similar name.

"Circe" is the name of a particularly bizarre chapter of James Joyce's Ulysses. What do you think it means?

There is a Circe character in just about every epic poem ever. The Faerie Queene? Check. Orlando Furioso? Check. Jerusalem Delivered? Check. The list goes on.
