Circe has been remembered for generations as the sorceress who turned Odysseus' men into pigs. In "Circe's Power," we see her tackle that accusation and set the record straight. She wants to tell the truth. She delivers a scathing critique of humans and of the world they live in, believing that theirs is a world in which appearances are valued more than truth. She accuses the world of loving lies more than truth.
Circe disguises her inside, her true feelings, in this poem.
