Pulled from the main page:

* I'm amazed no one has mentioned Tennyson's Ulysses. I'd quote a relevant snipit, but I'd have to quote the whole poem. (Yes, he called Odysseus Ulysses - deal with it.)

I'm not actually familiar with the poem, but this entry is broken on several levels. First person, Word Cruft ("amazed no one has mentioned"), a needlessly aggressive parenthetical comment at the end that does nothing for the trope, and that it's pretty much a Zero-Context Example.

Before putting it back, please fix those problems.
