    “But, tell me who thou art? and what thy race? Thy town, thy parents, and thy native place? Or, if a merchant in pursuit of gain, What port received thy vessel from the main? Or comest thou single, or attend thy train?” Then thus Minerva in Laertes' ear: "Son of Arcesius, reverend warrior, hear! Jove and Jove's daughter first implore in prayer, Then, whirling high, discharge thy lance in air." Cylenius now to Pluto's dreary reign Conveys the dead, a lamentable train! The golden wand, that causes sleep to fly, Or in soft slumber seals the wakeful eye, That drives the ghosts to realms of night or day, Points out the long uncomfortable way. Now sat Ulysses at the rural feast The rage of hunger and of thirst repress'd: To watch the foe a trusty spy he sent: A son of Dolius on the message went, Stood in the way, and at a glance beheld The foe approach, embattled on the field.

    the third one doesn't really make it seem as if there are any mortals or normal people
