"Now face to face the magical Calypso recognized him, as all immortal gods know one another on sight—though seeming strangers, far from home. But he saw nothing of the great Odysseus, who sat apart... and racked his own heart groaning, with eyes wet scanning the bare horizon of the sea."
"Calypso invites Hermes to her table for food and drink, asking why he has come. Hermes explains that he has brought with an order from Zeus that Calypso must not detain Odysseus any longer but send him on his way home."
"He sat on the rocky shore and broke his own heart groaning, with eyes wet scanning the bare horizon of the sea. Now she stood near him in her beauty, saying: “O forlorn man, be still. Here you need grieve no more; you need not feel your life consumed here; I have pondered it, and I shall help you go.”
"He took the chair left empty now by Hermes, where the divine Calypso placed before him victuals and drink of men; then she sat down facing Odysseus, while her serving maids brought nectar and ambrosia to her side. Then each one’s hands went out on each one’s feast until they had their pleasure."
"With Calypso’s help, Odysseus builds a raft and sets out to sea.
"Athena showered sleep that his distress should end, and soon, soon. In quiet sleep she sealed his cherished eyes."
