Odysseus and his men arrive at the island of the cyclops.
It is Odysseus's famed curiosity that leads him to Cyclop's cave and that makes him insist on waiting for the court of king Alcinous.
Odysseus and 12 of his men find the cyclops' cave.
"Tell me, how are you called? I'll make a gift will please you. Line 351
"My name is Nohbdy." Line 360
Odysseus and his men are trapped inside by the Cyclops.
The cyclops is stabbed in the eye by Odysseus and his men, but when the others come to his aid, he says "Nohbdy's" has blinded him.
"Nohbdy, Nohbdy's tricked me. Nohbdy's ruined me!" line 403
Since the cyclops is now blind, Odysseus and his men are able to hide under the sheep and escape.
Full of rage, Polyphemus sends a prayer to his father, Poseidon.
"o here me, lord, blue girdler of the islands, if I am thine indeed, and thou art father: grant that Odysseus, raider of cities, never see his home: Laetres' son, I mean, who kept his hall on Ithaca. Line 529-533
