Odysseus and his men arrive at the Lotus Eaters' flower. Odysseus sent 3 of his men to the island to discover who inhabited the land. They had failed to come back within the day, so Odysseus went to investigate. The inhabitants, The Lotus Eaters, had offered the sweet lotus plant to his men, and they had lost all memories of home. Odysseus drags them back to the ship, all the while they were saying " No, I don't want to go!" He still kept on, got them back to the ship and they sailed away from there.
