The Story of Helios cattle
By: Travis Franzen
Before, Odysseus didn't want to go to the island but his men convinced him otherwise.
Odysseus goes to pray in a sheltered spot and the men go to get food because they are starving.
Odysseus and his men arrive on the island and Odysseus tells them not to eat the cattle. 1."The men, however, insist on landing." 2."Odysseus makes them swear not to touch the god's cattle"
Eurylochus talks about killing the cattle and eating them to survive even if they have to die.
It starts to get stormy and they enter the cave to take refuge. 1."A giant wind blew from heaven, and clouds driven by Zeus shrouded land and sea in a night of storm" 2."We dragged our ship to cover in a grotto, a sea cave"
Helios prays to Zeus and tells him to kill all of Odysseus' men.
1."Hunger drove them to scour the wild shore with angling hooks, for fish and sea fowl, whatever fell into their hands; and lean days wore their bellies thin." 2."So, one day I withdrew to the interior to pray to the gods in solitude, for hope that one might show me some way of salvation."
1."All deaths are hatelful to us, mortal wretches, but famine is the most pitiful, the worst end that a man can come to." 2."Come, we'll cut out the noblest of these cattle"
1."O Father Zeus and gods in bliss forever, punish Odysseus' men!" 2. "So overweening now they have killed my peaceful kine" Odysseus and his men are on board and Zeus sends them to die while on board. They are sent back to Charybdis and Scylla. They all die, but Odysseus survives and lands himself on the island of Calypso.
