Canto I

Limbs that we left in the house of Circe,
"Crices this craft, the trim-coifed goddess."
Kirke (Circe) is the daughter of Helios (the Sun) and Perseis, which would
make her the grand-daughter of Okeanos (Ocean).

On her island... in her palace... Kirke waits for lost sailors to come
wandering to her door as supplicants. Normally, a traveler is treated as a
special guest but with Kirke, travelers are drugged and then served as
dinner. A hypothesis for the word Circe.
