|| Tell me, O Muse, of that man of many turnings who traveled far and wide
after he had sacked the famous town of Troy.
Many cities did he visit, and many were the people with whose customs and thinking
he became acquainted; many things he suffered at sea while seeking to save his own life and to
achieve the safe homecoming of his companions....
|The Ship of Odysseus
