  • THE CYCLOPS' CAVE
  • “The rest of you loyal friends stay here, while I and my crew take ship and try and find out who these men are, whether they are cruel, savage and lawless, or good to strangers, and in their hearts fear the gods.”
  • POLYHEMUS RETURNS
  • “Strangers, who are you? Where do you sail from over the sea-roads? Are you on business, or do you roam at random, like pirates who changed their lives to bring evil to others?”
  • TRAPPED
  • Poseidon, EarthShaker, smashed my ship to pieces, wrecking her on the rocks that edge your island, driving her close to the headland so the wind threw her onshore. But I and my men here escaped destruction.”
  • Odysseus and his friends set sail and they found Cyclops' cave.
  • OFFERING THE CYCLOPS WINE
  • “Here, Cyclops, have some wine to follow your meal of human flesh, so you can taste the sort of drink we carried in our ship. I was bringing the drink to you as a gift, hoping you might pity me and help me on my homeward path:but your savagery is past bearing. Cruel man, why would anyone on earth ever visit you again, when you behave so badly?”
  • Odysseus and his friends found cheese, goats, and sheep in the cave so they waited there for the cyclops to get back.
  • BLINDING THE CYCLOPS
  • “Polyphemus, what terrible pain is this that makes you call through deathless night, and wake us? Is a mortal stealing your flocks, or trying to kill you by violence or treachery?”
