Contra los que se olvidan de su natural.

OTTAVA ACEPHALA.

A tu tierra y Ó aquellos que tenias
Por amistad ˛ sangre conošidos
No piensas mas tornar ha muchos dias.
Ansi los compa˝eros detenidos
De Ulysses, por el Lotho que gustaron,
A’l capitan y a su tierra olvidaron.[1]

Notes:

1. áSee Homer, Odyssey 9.83ff. for the story of Ulysses’ crew (men from the island of Ithaca) in the land of the Lotus Eaters, where those who ate the lotus had no more thought of returning home. See Erasmus, Adagia 1662 Lotum gustavit.
