"Clasp hands, brother." "I will not touch your hand until you tell me if you will accept me openly for your rival?" "And if not?" "If not, break my head; you will be right in so doing.
"That admitted, Polyphème, how will you evade the fate that threatens you? "Just at present this road is hardly favorable for escape, I know; rocks on the right hand, on the left the sea, in front of and behind me the escort.
