in the front row, Telemachus (left) and Athena (right) talk about the suitors.
What's a gawky teenager to do? Lots of guys are living at his house because they want to marry his mother. He doesn't know where his father is and he just wants everyone to go the hell away. Telemachus is pouring his little heart out to Athena (who's pretending to be a bloke) and getting a bit of advice about how to solve his family's Suitor Problem.
... Telemachus, head close to Athena's sparkling eyes,
spoke low to his guest so no one else could hear:
'Dear stranger, would you be shocked by what I say?
Look at them over there. Not a care in the world,
just lyres and tunes! It's easy for them, all right,
they feed on another's goods and go scot-free -
a man whose white bones lie strewn in the rain somewhere,
rotting away on land or rolling down the ocean's salty swells.
