Section 9, The Wandering Rocks Summary

The blue skies lift Ulysses spirits, making him hopeful to avoid the tragedies foretold in Tartarus. At Ulysses' orders, the Hellenes attempt to sail straight to Ithaca. Ulysses hears a strange moaning and sees black things floating in the water. As the ship nears these anomalies, Ulysses realizes that they are rocks floating toward the ship and is amazed at the fact that rocks are floating. The Hellenes attempt to go around the rocks to the south sea which will take them to Ithaca, but the rocks float so as to block their course. Ulysses sets their course north by northwest, realizing that he will be unable to avoid the monsters that have been foretold for his journey. The Hellenes head toward the Isle of the Sun, also known as Thrinacia and which will one day become Sicily.
