After Ulysses reveals his identity to Telemachus and the two have an emotional reunion, Ulysses jumps right into the business at hand: getting rid of the suitors. He tells Telemachus
"First, therefore, give me a list of the suitors, with their number, that I may learn who, and how many, they are. I can then turn the matter over in my mind, and see whether we two can fight the whole body of them ourselves, or whether we must find others to help us."
Once again, what strength of Ulysses is displayed?
