Ulysses finds Teiresias and allows him to drink the sheep blood.
Stand back from the trench and withdraw your sword that I may drink the blood and answer your questions truly.
Teiresias drinks the sheep blood and gives Ulysses his prophecy.
...And that's what you should do. If you wish to speak with any of the dead, you must let them taste the blood, if you don't, they will go away.
Teiresias leaves to tell more prophecies to other people.
Now I must leave.
Ulysses spots his mother and tells her to drink the blood.
Mother! Please drink this sheep blood.
His mother tells him how his father is doing
Your father is heartbroken because you never came back, he now stays in his old place and never comes into town.
His mother then tells him of her death.
Heaven did not take me swiftly and painlessly in my own house, nor was I attacked by any illness. but my longing to know what you were doing and the force of my affection for you. This was the death of me.
