STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

fullness of his wisdom forbade me to speak. But come with me, and I will stake my life upon it; and if I play you false, slay me at once."
Still the Queen doubted, and said, "Let me go down and s see my son, and these men that are slain, and the nian who slew them."
So she went down from her chamberr and sat by the wall in the light of the fire. Ulysses sat by a pillar, with eyes cast down, waiting to see whether his wife would
speak to him when she beheld him. But she was sore perplexed; for now she seemed to know him, and now she knew him not, since he was still clad as a beggar, for he had not allowed the women to put new robes upon him.
Telemachus said, "Mother, why do you sit apart from my father, and why do you not speak to him? Surely your heart is harder than stone."
But Ulysses said, "Let be, Telemachus. Your mother will know that which is true in good time."
Meanwhile Ulysses went to the bath, clothed himself in fair garments, and came back to the hall; and Athena shed beauty upon him. Then he sat down as before, opposite his wife, and said:
" Surely, O lady, the goas have made you harder of heart than all women besides. Would any other wife have kept away from her husband, when he came back after twenty years?"
Then Penelope knew that he was her husband, and ran to him, and threw her arms about him and kissed him, saying, "Forgive me, my lord, if I was slow to know you; for, so many tricks have men that I ever feared that someone would deceive me, saying that he was Ulysses. But now I know that you are indeed my husband."
And they wept over each other and kissed each other.
