The Adventures of Ulysses

by Charles Lamb

This work is designed as a supplement to the Adventures of Telemachus. Ittreats of the conduct and sufferings of Ulysses, the father of Telemachus.The picture which it exhibits is that of a brave man struggling withadversity; by a wise use of events, and with an inimitable presence ofmind under difficulties, forcing out a way for himself through theseverest trials to which human life can be exposed; with enemies naturaland preternatural surrounding him on all sides. The agents in this tale,besides men and women, are giants, enchanters, sirens: things which denoteexternal force or internal temptations, the twofold danger which a wisefortitude must expect to encounter in its course through this world. Thefictions contained in it will be found to comprehend some of the mostadmired inventions of Grecian mythology.
