Transformations of Circe Book Description:

Beginning with a detailed study of Homer's balance of negative and positive elements in the Circe-Odysseus myth, Judith Yarnall employs text and illustrations to demonstrate how Homer's Circe is connected with age-old traditions of goddess worship. She then examines how the image of a one-sided "witch," who first appeared in the commentary of Homer's allegorical interpreters, proved remarkably persistent, influencing Virgil and Ovid. Yarnall concludes with a discussion of work by Margaret Atwood and Eudora Welty in which the enchantress at last speaks in her own voice: that of a woman isolated by, but unashamed of, her power.

Circe Book Description:

SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2019 Woman. Witch. Myth. Mortal. Outcast. Lover. Destroyer. Survivor. CIRCE. In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. Circe is a strange child – not powerful and terrible, like her father, nor gorgeous and mercenary like her mother. Scorned and rejected, Circe grows up in the shadows, at home in neither the world of gods or mortals. But Circe has a dark power of her own: witchcraft. When her gift threatens the gods, she is banished to the island of Aiaia where she hones her occult craft, casting spells, gathering strange herbs and taming wild beasts. Yet a woman who stands alone will never be left in peace for long – and among her island's guests is an unexpected visitor: the mortal Odysseus, for whom Circe will risk everything. So Circe sets forth her tale, a vivid, mesmerizing epic of family rivalry, love and loss – the defiant, inextinguishable song of woman burning hot and bright through the darkness of a man's world.

CIRCE a Natural Language Rule Translation System for Intersensor Book Description:

Circe is a set of functions written in LISP as an experiment in natural language processing. It was developed for knowledge acquisition by the Intersensor system, a sonar knowledge-based inference system. The main function of Circe inputs from either the keyboard or a file a rule written in English and converts it into a LISP-like data structure. This conversion takes place in two steps: the English text is first parsed, and then the relevant information is extracted from the resulting list and assembled into rules. These rules are then written to a file where they can be used directly by the inference mechanism of Intersensor without further processing. The paper briefly reviews prior research at DREA in this area, and contrasts the current system with its predecessors. Implementation problems are discussed, and suggestions for improvements are given. Keywords: parsers; translators. (Author).

Circe Book Description:

THE ARGUMENT MER relates that Ulysses, king of Ithaca in Greece, sailing homeward after the capture of Troy, drifted into unknown seas in consequence of the wrath of Neptune and after losing all but one of his twelve ships, landed with the sole remaining vessel upon the island of the enchantress irce, who transformed one-half of his ships company, twenty-two in number, into swine. He relates further that Ulysses, apprised by Blercury of the fate of his companions, and furnished by the god with an antidote for the spells of the sorceress, compelled her to restore his men to their human shape. Thereupon, at the invitation of Circe the rest of the crew join their mates at her palace, where all spend a year in festivity and merry-making before proceeding on their way with precise instructions from thc Enchantress regarding the homeward voyage. The experiences of Ulysses and his followers, as described in the Odyssey, immediately previous to their arrival at the Isle of Circe, had been of an extraordinary and alarming character. A number of men had been devoured by Polyphernus the Cyclops in his cave, where he had entrapped a party, the survivors escaping by riding out, clasped under the bellies of his sheep, after they had made the monster drunk and blinded his one eye with a fiery stake. Later, they came to the domain of Eolus, king of the minds, who presented Ulysses with a number of bags hoIding the adverse winds in confinement.
