Excerpt
Excerpt: Penelope to Ulysses. Your Penelope sends you this, Ulysses, the so-longdelayed. Don?t reply to me however: come yourself. Troy lies in ruins, an enemy, indeed, to the girls of Greece - Priam, and all of Troy, were scarcely worth this! O I wish, at that time when he sought Sparta with his fleet, Paris, the adulterer, had been whelmed beneath angry seas! I would not have lain here, cold in an empty bed, nor be left behind, to complain, at suffering long days, nor my hand, bereft, exhaust me, working all night long to cause deception, with my doubtful web. When have I not feared dangers worse than all realities?
