This is the story of Odysseus and the Cyclops. Odysseus had found a Cyclops and he was asking for food and supplies. The Cyclops denied and ate some of Odysseus's men. Odysseus had told the Cyclops that his name was Nhobdy and offered him some wine. The Cyclops accepted and he got drunk but he didn't know that this was part of Odysseus's plan. While drunken with bad eyesight Odysseus and his men stabbed the cyclops and escaping. While running Odysseus had told the Cyclops who he really was and that had made him a target for Posiden because the Cyclops was his son.
I'm curious to see what this is.
You can't have my stuff!
Odysseus arrives on the island of cyclopes and he takes 12 of his best fighters to go explore and see the cyclops.
Have some of this, its good.
Odysseus saw the cyclops and was overcome by curiosity and he had to go inspect.
ow you've blinded me!!
When Odysseus and his men went to see the cave they also saw that the cyclops had sheep and cheese; the men wanted to take the stuff and leave.
For I am truly Odysseus of Ithaca and I have bested you, know that you have been defeated!
Odysseus was in the cave and the cyclops had eaten his some of his men and he had an idea to get the cyclops drunk so he could stab him and tell him his fake name.
The cyclops was finally drunk enough to not be able to see in front of himself well so Odysseus and his men stabbed him in his eye blinding him.
After escaping by tricking the cyclops multiple times Odysseus had shouted to the cyclops his real name and who he was but little did he know this would make his trip home even harder.
