Penelope, Odysseus’ wife, is one of the many characters in this novel who is faithful to Odysseus, which she shows by not marrying anybody else. In Book 2, Penelope tells suitors that she will marry one of them once she finishes weaving the shroud.

Likewise, in Book 21, Penelope comes to the storeroom in order to talk to her suitors, telling them that “whoever bends this bow and slips the string on its notch...with him will I go,” (21.71,74). Penelope tricks the suitors into thinking they have a chance of marrying her; she knows that only Odysseus can work the bow and arrow, so none of the suitors will succeed.

I says, "Then I conveyed two picked men and a runner to realize what race of men that land managed. They fell in, soon enough, with Lotus Eaters, who demonstrated no will to do us hurt, just offering the sweet Lotus to our companions however the individuals who ate this sugary plant, the Lotus, never minded to report, nor to return; they yearned to stay perpetually, searching on that local blossom, distracted of their country. I drove them, every one of the three wailing, to the shipsâ"(page).
