"Odysseus's ship escapes and lands on Aeaea, the home of the enchantress and Goddess Circe."
"In the wild wood they found an open glade, around a smooth stone house---the hall of Circe---and wolves and mountain lions lay there, mild in her soft spell, fed on her drugs of evil."
"On thrones she seated them, and lounging chairs, while she prepared a meal of cheese and barley and amber honey mixed with Pramnian wine, adding her own vile pinch, to make them lose desire or thought of our dear fatherland."
"Scarce had they drunk when she flew after them with her long stick and shut them in a pigsty---bodies,voices,heads, and bristles..."
"She responds to their pleas with the command that Odysseus alone descend to the Land of the Dead."
