STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

return after a long time, in a ship not thine own. Thou shalt find in thy palace, devouring thy goods, men of violence, suitors of thy wife. These shalt thou slay. Then at last shalt thou die in peace."
Having spoken to many other spirits, Ulysses went back to his ship, and returned with his companions to the island of Circe. And when they arrived there, Circe made them a feast. But while the others slept, she told Ulysses all that should happen to him, saying:

They sit in a meadow, singing, but about them are bones of men. Do thou, then, close with wax the ears of thy companions, and make them bind thee to the mast, so that thou mayest hear the song and yet take no hurt. And do thou bid them, when thou shalt pray to be loosed, not to yield, but rather to bind thee the more.
" When this peril is past, there lie others in thy path, of which I would give thee warning. Thou must go through a strait where there is a rock on either hand. In the one rock dwells Scylla, a horrible monster with twelve unshapely feet and six long necks, a head on each. Think not to escape her, Ulysses, for, of a truth, with each head will she take one of thy companions.
" But the rock on the other side is lower, and there Charybdis thrice a day draws in the water, and thrice a day sends it forth. Choose to pass near Scylla, for it is better to lose six of thy companions than that all should perish.
"Then wilt thou come to the island where feed the oxen of the Sun. Beware that thy comPanions harm them not."
