In this story Odysseus lands on an island with a cyclops.
The cyclops traps them in his cave.
They escape by outwitting him and Odysseus then brags to him and the cyclops asks his dad to stop him from getting home.
Lets go inside i'm curious to see what a cyclops looks like. Our ship may have landed here because of the winds but lets stay and look.
Cyclops was angry they came in ,and instead of showing hospitality he ate two of the soldiers. Odysseus knew he had to do something to get out.
Odysseus gave him 4 bowls of wine and each one was worth 20 glasses for a normal human. They got the cyclops drunk. He told the cyclops his name was Nohbdy.
After Odysseus got him drunk so they could stab his eye and sneak out. The other cyclopes came in and asked what was wrong when he was screaming. Cyclops said Nohbdy has ruined me. The other cyclopes left thinking nobody hurt him.
The crew and Odysseus escaped the cave using the herd of sheep the cyclops was letting out. He could not see them because he stabbed them.
Odysseus escaped but he also told the cyclops his real name while bragging to him. The cyclops asked his father Poseidon to make him take a very long time to get home and to kill his companions .
