La venganša justa.

Ottava rhima.

Estando Polyphemo recostado
Junto a la entrada de su cueva umbrosa
Con ronca voz cantava Ó su ganado.
Paze la yerva tu verde y viciosa
Yo de los Griegos serŔ apašentado
Y, Utis serÓ el postrero.[1] Este la cosa á[M]
Como entendi˛, le šiega. Ansi padeze
El mal hechor la pena que mereze.[2]

[Marginalia - link to text]Ulysses.

Notes:

1. áFor the story of Ulysses in the Cyclops’ cave and his escape by blinding the Cyclops, see Homer, Odyssey 9.177 ff. Ulysses had told the Cyclops his name was No-man. (Utis l. 6).

2. áA proverbial sentiment: cf. Erasmus, Adagia 3091, Di tibi dent tuam mentem.
