"Nobly [he] braves the whirlwind and the hurricaneā€¯. Typhoeus was a son of Ge, and he was so strong that he seemed terrible not only to mankind, but also to the gods; they, the story goes, used to change [their] shapes into those of brute beasts for fear of him.[1] A 'hurricane' [is] a strong blast.[2] But a 'whirlwind' is a stronger and mischievous wind.
