I need help paraphrasing Canto I by Ezra Pound. I have to write it in paragraph form and I can't leave anything out. I'm having trouble with a few lines.

"And then went down to the ship,

"Circe's this craft, the trim-coifed goddess"

Swartest night stretched over wretched men there."

"Here did they rites, Perimedes and Eurylochus,"

"Then prayed I many a prayer to the sickly death's-head;"

    "Here did they rites, Perimedes and Eurylochus,"

    Check a definition of "rites." Who were Perimedes and Eurylochus?
