Circe's Power

Circe's Power

by Louise Glück

Analysis: Tough-O-Meter

(1) Sea Level

You don't have to know a thing about Circe or about The Odyssey to walk into this poem and to know exactly what's going down. Sure, Circe launches some pretty weighty, philosophical debates, but all you have to do to understand the essence of this poem is to be a human.
