Odysseus and his men arrived at the lush island of the Cyclops and ventured on to it to see if the Cyclops were friend or foe. The Cyclops are distant and very mean creatures often living in families of 3
They found a cave that had a basket filled with delicious food like cheese and bread, they feasted on it and fell into a deep sleep. This island is filled with plants that grow unintentionally and lots of cattle, it provides very well since the Cyclops are so large.
The Cyclops returns to the cave and puts a boulder in the front to clock it up, he lights a fire and Odysseus and his men hid in the shadow of the flame. When the giant realizes he is there he smashes two of the mens heads together and eats them.
Odysseus then begins making a plan, first offers the Cyclops alcohol (which he never had before) the Cyclops passes out and falls into a deep sleep.
What's your name?
The giant had played himself, now that he was blinded Odysseus and his men each hung onto the belly of the cattle. Early in the morning the Cyclops let the sheep out out of routine and the men made their escape once they reached the field.
Nohbdy is HURTING ME
As Odysseus and his men ran out to the ship he could not help but to call back to the giant. The anguished giant attempted to hurl rocks at the ship and then he prayed to Poseidon to curse Odysseus voyage, find out later in the story if his prayers were answered..
Hear me Poseidon.. grant that Odysseus.. may never reach home
*laughing* My name is not Nohbdy! You have been fooled by Odysseus
