As he would add a shilling to more shillings,

Because you love me I have much achieved,
Had you despised me then I must have failed,
But since I knew you trusted and believed,
I could not disappoint you and so prevailed.

Out Of The Sighs

But not of grief, for I have knocked down that
Before the agony; the spirit grows,
Forgets, and cries;

Translation Of: The Odyssey Of Homer: Book X

ARGUMENT

Ulysses, in pursuit of his narrative, relates his arrival at the island of ëolus, his departure thence, and the unhappy occasion of his return thither. The monarch of the winds dismisses him at last with much asperity. He next tells of his arrival among the Lëstrygonians, by whom his whole fleet, together with their crews, are destroyed, his own ship and crew excepted. Thence he is driven to the island of Circe. By her the half of his people are transformed into swine. Assisted by Mercury, he resists her enchantments himself, and prevails with the Goddess to recover them to their former shape. In consequence of Circe's instructions, after having spent a complete year in her palace, he prepares for a voyage to the infernal regions.

Introductory 01

Laudation to the God of majesty and glory! Obedience to him is a cause of approach and gratitude in increase of benefits. Every inhalation of the breath prolongs life and every expiration of it gladdens our nature; wherefore every breath confers two benefits and for every benefit gratitude is due.

Whose hand and tongue is capable
To fulfil the obligations of thanks to him?

On this bleak hut, and solitude, and me
Remembering again that I shall die
And neither hear the rain nor give it thanks

In his dishonour'd works himself endure

That causes my brain to spin and leave earth with nothing.
