Odysseus's men try to persuade him to not go into the Cyclops' cave.
'Why not take these cheeses, get them stowed, come back, throw open all the pens, and make a run for it? We'll drive the kids and lambs aboard. We say put out again on good salt water!'
"I am sorry, but I must refuse. I wish to see the caveman and what he has to offer!"
The crew arrives at the Cyclops Cave and they all think that is a good place to settle down and set up camp. They lit a fire and burnt offerings.
The Cyclops, Polyphemus, returned to his cave with bough for a fire and brought his ewes inside to milk. After he came inside, he sealed the door with a large stone.
"Strangers, who are you? And where from? What brings you here by sea ways—a fair traffic? Or are you wandering rogues, who cast your lives like dice, and ravage other folk by sea?'
'We are from Troy, Achaeans, blown off course by shifting gales on the Great South Sea; homeward bound, but taking routes and ways uncommon; so the will of Zeus would have it. We served under Agamemnon, son of Atreus— the whole world knows what city he laid waste, what armies he destroyed. It was our luck to come here; here we stand, beholden for your help, or any gifts you give—as custom is to honor strangers. We would entreat you, great Sir, have a care for the gods' courtesy; Zeus will avenge the unoffending guest.'
