"We reached the Aeolian island next, the home of Aeolus,Hippotas’ son, beloved by the gods who never die. (Homer Book 10, 1-3)"
Aeolus gives him good winds to Ithaca and a bag of bad winds.
"He gave me a sack, the skin of a full-grown ox, binding inside the winds that howl from every quarter, for Zeus had made that king the master of all the winds, with power to calm them down or rouse them as he pleased. (Homer Book 10, 25-30)"
They were sailing perfectly towards to Ithaca.
"For nine whole days and nights we held our course, and on the tenth we glimpsed our native land .(Homer Book 10, 38-39).
They were able to see their homeland straight ahead.
We came in so close we could see the men who tend the beacon fires. (Homer Book 10, 40-41)"
Odysseus' men opened the bag thinking it was gold, but it released the harsh winds that were kept inside.
"As they talked like this, my companions’ greedy thoughts prevailed. They untied the bag. All the winds rushed out. (Homer Book 10, 62-65)"
They get back to Aeolus' Island, wanting aid, but he refuses to help him and his crew again.
"'Of all living men, you are the worst—so you must leave this island with all speed. (Homer Book 10, 96-100)"'
