Ulysses by Alfred Lord Tennyson is a take on Ulysses life as he nears his impending death, knowing he can’t run from his old age forever he decides to leave on one last adventure with his crew from before, he said once “I cannot rest from travel: I will drink life to the lees… I am become name” his last goal is to travel for what ever time he has left, enjoying life to the “lees” or undesirable parts happy that he has anything at all. He has become legend in his younger years, so much so that many know his name and his adventures getting home to Ithaca. Now he pushes for one more adventure, one more time to explore the unknown world. To become legend, to become name.
