In this short book of wry verse, Eumaeus gives the author the low-down on Odysseus and his encounters with Pallas Athene, Calypso, Nausicaa, Circe, the Sirens, and Scylla and Charybdis.

''Why didn't Odysseus a wife for thee provide, / that she might live forever by your side?'' / ''Nay, sir, a wife he never for me found / For no one had a chance with him around.''
