Helen herself seems almost ready for this sacrifice

-at least, for the immolation of

herself before this greatest love of Achilles,his dedication to "his own ship" and the

figurehead, "an idol or eidolon ...

a mermaid, Thetis upon the prow."Did her eyes slant in the old way?

was she Greek or Egyptian?

had some Phoenician sailor wrought her?was she oak-wood or cedar?

had she been cut from an awkward block

of ship-wood at the ship-builders,and afterwards riveted there,

or had the prow itself been shaped

to her mermaid body,curved to her mermaid hair?

was there a dash of paint

in the beginning, in the garment-fold,did the blue afterwards wear away?

did they re-touch her arms, her shoulders?

did anyone touch her ever?Had she other zealot and lover,

or did he alone worship her?

did she wear a girdle of sea-weedor a painted crown? how often

did her high breasts meet the spray,

how often dive down?
