Transcript of Circe/Scylla

By Rhea Wells-Isakson and Sarah Roberts Circe and Scylla Physical Attributes and Personality Artist's Representation of Circe Myth Relationship to Other Characters Artist's Representation of Scylla Minor Goddess of Magic
Murdered her husband to gain power of Colchis
Banished to Aeaea, which she eventually became the ruler of.
Vast knowledge of drugs and herbs.
Known for changing her enemies and people that offended her into animals Often described as a "beautiful sorceress."
She was known to be enchanting
She was known to be very defensive of the land she 'ruled'. Glaucus was a fisherman. One day while sorting his catch, he was changed into a sea god. He was half man, and half fish. Soon after, he fell in love with the beautiful Scylla. But Scylla was scared of Glaucus and rejected him. He asked Circe to make Scylla fall in love with him. Instead she offered Glaucus her love. When he rejected her, she turned Scylla into a sea monster. Scylla in fear, fled to a dangerous cliff and attacked anyone that came near.
"Rage filled the goddess' heart. She had no power nor wish to wound him (for she loved him well), so turned her anger on the girl he chose" The sea monster Scylla is said to have a fearsome , savage personality. She attacks anyone who comes within range of her heads. Scylla is a sea monster who lies beside Charybdis. In one tale, it is said that Hercules killed her for stealing some of the Oxen of Geryon, and being resurrected by Phorcys. She is the daughter of Krataiis and Lamia. Boeotian red-figure bell-crater Circe Scylla Scylla is typically depicted as a monster with twelve dangling feet, six long necks and dog-like heads lined with three rows of razor sharp teeth. In classic art, she is depicted as a fish-tailed sea-goddess with a cluster of canine heads surrounding her waist. Some say that she was born a beautiful nymph who was turned into a monster, others argue she had been born a monster. Physical Attributes Personality Traits Allusions to Circe Circe is alluded to in "Ulysses" by James Joyce because in "The Odyssey" Odysseus and his crew find their way to Circe's island where Odysseus kills a stag with grand antlers (in "Ulysses", there are a pair of antlers hanging inside a brothel Stephen enters). Odysseus and his men are turned into hogs in "The Odyssey" and run into Hermes, (who in "Ulysses" is supposed to be a character by the name of Rudy). Hermes gives Odysseus an herb to protect them from Circe's magic (in Ulysses it's a potato). Ms. Bella Cohen is supposed to represent Circe in "Ulysses". Who Am I Alluding To? Scylla is alluded to in James Joyce's "Ulysses: Episode 9 - Scylla and Charybdis". In "The Odyssey", Odysseus ignores Circe's advise to stay away from Scylla and attempts to engage her in battle. In Ulysses, Stephen accidentally changes the course of the ship they're on because he's too engaged in his argumentation. Eventually his friend Eglinton reminds him that the truth lies between their two positions and not one way or the other.
She is also alluded to in the poem "Charybdis and Scylla" by Tharmas Erthona. He describes being caught between two sides and being tempted towards one of them, a monstrous demon-woman, who eventually killed herself, allowing Erthona to continue along his path. Relationships To Circe Believed to be the daughter of the Sun God Helios and Sea Nymph Perse. Turned Odysseus' men into swine, but eventually was forced by Odysseus to surender and turned them back into humans. She then housed Odysseus and his men for about a year before he decided to go home. Fell in love with a River God named Glaucus. Eventually murdered by a man named Telemachus who then married her daughter, Cassiphone. Circe Scylla Circe vs. Scylla "In fury at his scorn, she ground together her ill-famed herbs, her herbs of ghastly juice, and, as she ground them, sang her demon spells . . ."
"‘. . . I, Circe, pray that I be yours. Spurn her who spurns you; welcome one who wants you. By one act requite us both!’" "Many a suitor sought her hand, but she repulsed them all and went to the Sea-Nymphs (Nymphae Pelagi) (she was the Sea-Nymphae's favourite) and told how she'd eluded all the young men's love."
"He saw the girl, and stopped, his heart transfixed, then spoke to her, spoke anything he thought might stay her flight. But Scylla fled (her terror gave her speed) and reached a cliff-top rising from the shore, a vast cliff by the strait, that towered up to one great peak and with its tree-clad height rose in a curve far out over the sea." Theme Bad things happen to the object of your love when you reject the love of a God or Goddess.
"In fury at his scorn, she ground together her ill-famed herbs, her herbs of ghastly juice, and, as she ground them, sang her demon spells . . ." Questions Anyone?
