2 Calypso trembled with rage when she heard this, "You gods," she exclaimed, "ought to be ashamed of yourselves."
3 Calypso smiled at this and caressed him with her hand: "You know a great deal," said she, "but you are quite wrong here."
4 Meanwhile Calypso came back with some augers, so he bored holes with them and fitted the timbers together with bolts and rivets.
5 Thereon Minerva began to tell them of the many sufferings of Ulysses, for she pitied him away there in the house of the nymph Calypso.
6 By and by Calypso brought him some linen to make the sails, and he made these too, excellently, making them fast with braces and sheets.
