All these things Ulysses told, all that he had done and all that he had suffered down to the time Nausicaa found him on the river shore.
Thus he spoke; and dead silence fell on all, and they were spellbound throughout the shadowy hall. Then Alcinous commanded that rich gifts be brought so that when Ulysses set sail the next evening he might go forth as befitted so illustrious a guest.
