Avaunt, Inchantress! - I am deaf as Adders; Deaf as Ulysses to the Sireni Song, Who strove in vain to lure him to Destruction. — Lewis Theobald Richly suggestive on a variety of levels, Odysseus's encounter with the Sirens in Homer's Odyssey remains one of the best-known episodes in world literature. This article exhumes a once popular variant of that story and tells how wise Ulysses, contrary to the ancient myth, came to stop his own ears against all allurements.
