“Here at last Ulysses’ knees and strong hands failed him, for the sea had completely broken him. His body was all swollen, and his mouth and nostrils ran down like a river with sea-water, so that he could neither breathe nor speak, and lay swooning from sheer exhaustion (…). Ulysses (…) began to make himself a bed to lie on, for there was a great litter of dead leaves lying about – enough to make a covering for two or three men even in hard winter weather. (…) Minerva shed a sweet sleep upon his eyes, closed his eyelids, and made him lose all memories of his sorrows.”
