STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

by the herb. He rushed at her with his sword, and made her swear that she would not harm him.
Now all this happened while the handmaids were busy preparing food. But when they sat at meat together, the goddess saw that he was silent and did not eat. So she said, "Why dost thou sit, Ulysses, as though thou wert dumb? Fearest thou any craft of mine? Nay, that cannot be, for have I not sworn the great oath that binds the gods?"
Ulysses said, "Nay, but who could think of meat and -drink when such things had befallen his companions?"
Then Circe led the way, holding her wand in her hand, and opened the doors of the sties, and drove out the swine that had been men. Then she rubbed on each of them another mighty drug, and the bristles fell from their bodies, and they became men again, only younger and fairer than before. When they saw Ulysses, they clung to him and wept for joy, and Circe herself was moved with pity.
Then she said, "Go, Ulysses, to thy ship, and put away all the goods in the caves that are on the shore, but come hither again and bring thy comrades with thee."
Then Ulysses returned to his ship, and his men were glad indeed to see him. Together they all went to the dwelling of Circe, who feasted them royally. They remained with her for a whole year, well content.
But when the year was spent, they said to Ulysses, "It would be well to remember your country, if it is indeed the will of the gods that you should return to Ithaca."
Then Ulysses begged Circe to send him on his way homeward, as indeed she had promised to do. And she answered:
"I would not have thee remain in my house unwillingly. Yet must thou first go on another journey, even to the dwellings of the dead, there to speak with the seer, Tiresias."
