STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

To go back to his comrades seemed better; and it chanced that as he went, he saw a great stag which was going down to the river to drink, and casting his spear at it, he pierced it through. Then he fastened together the feet, and slinging the beast around his neck, carried it to the ship, leaning on his spear; for indeed it was heavy to bear. When he came to the ship, he cast down his burden. Now the men were sitting with their faces muffled, so sad were they. But when he bade them be of good cheer, they looked up and marveled at the great stag. All that day they feasted on deer's flesh and sweet wine,.and at night lay down to sleep on the shore. But when morning came, Ulysses called them all together and spoke:
"I know not where we are. But I know that someone dwells in this island, for I saw smoke from the hills."
It troubled the men much to hear this, for they thought of the Cyclops and the Laestrygonians; and they wailed aloud. Then Ulysses divided the men into two companies, placing Eurylochus over one, and himself over the other, and shook lots in a helmet to see who should go to examine the island; and the lot fell to Eurylochus.

All about were wolves and lions; yet these harmed not the men, but stood up on their hind legs, fawning upon them, as dogs fawn upon their master when he comes from his meal. And the men were afraid. They stood in the porch and heard the voice of Circe as she sang and plied her loom.
So they called to her, and she came out and beckoned them. And they went, in their folly, She bade them sit, and mixed for them a bowl of red wine, and in it barley-meal,
