We shall venture inside this cave and wait for the cyclops, then we shall offer him wine and grace!
How dare you?!
You ready men?
Yes Odysseus, For our friends!!!!
Odysseus and his men cross the seas and arrive at Polyphemus' cave
What ails you Polyphemus? Why do you cry admist the starry night
Nohbdy's tricked me! He's ruined me!
Take that you hideous beast!
Polyphemus does not care for Odysseus' gods and begins to eat two of Odysseus' men. Odysseus and his men are trapped in the cave so Odysseus must think quickly so that the rest of his men do not suffer the same fate.
Sweet cousin ram why do you lag behind the flock?
Go graze my rams
Odysseus then begins to get Polyphemus to drink the wine. He gets drunk and asks for Odysseus' name to which he replies that his name is Nohbdy. Odysseus then act at their plan to blind Polyphemus and escape.
O' father, grant that Odysseus never sees his home of Ithica again! That he should not see his roof again, his family, and his father land! ever again!
Let it be known that I, Odysseus, was the one that blinded you and put you to shame.
After stabbing Polyphemus in the eye, he cries out. However he has been deceived and the other cyclops think that Polyphemus has injured himself and no one has attacked him.
Odysseus and his men wait until the morning and make their great escape under the bellies of Polyphemus' rams
Odysseus and his men then escape and are free from Polyphemus' cave. However, Odysseus makes the fatal flaw of letting Polyphemus know his real name so he curses him.
