Excerpt from First Thirteen Books of the Odyssey of Homer: Literally Translated, With Explanatory Notes; With an Introduction My child, what word has escaped thy lips How could I forget divine Ulysses, who excels amongst mortals in under standing, and has abundantly given sacrifice to the immortal gods, who possess the wide heaven But earth-possessing Neptune is for ever immovably angry on account of the Cy clops,3 whose eye he blinded, the godlike Polyphemus, whose power is greatest amongst all the Cyclops him the nymph Thoosa brought forth, the daughter of Phorcys, ruler of the barren sea, embraced by Neptune in a hollow cave. On this account, then, does earth-shaking Neptune not kill Ulysses, but causes him to wander from his native land. But come, let all of us contrive his return, in what way he may come, and Neptune remit his anger for he will not indeed be able against the will of all the immortal gods, to contend alone against all.
