Odysseus and his men dock on an island with a lot of crops and sheep. He brings his men up to a cave to see if there are any other people.
"Come back, Odysseus, and I'll treat you well"
Odysseus makes his men stay in the cave because he wants to meet the owner of the cave. But when the cyclopes gets back he eats two of his men.
Odysseus gives the cyclops three bowls of wine so he will fall fast asleep. Once he falls asleep Odysseus sharpens a stick and hardens it by burning it and then he stabs the cyclops in the eye blinding him.
In the morning Odysseus and his men tie each other to the bottom of the sheep. And since the Cyclops is now blind he can't see them.
Odysseus and his men finally get back to his boat and sail off. But Odysseus yells back to the cyclopes and tells him his real name so the Cyclops prays to his father poseidon to make Odysseus's journey home long and hard.
