Odysseus ventures upon King Alcinous' castle. He is met with great generosity.
King Alcinous and his fellow Phaeacians are decent, civilized, and kind.
Odysseus is comfortable among the Phaeacians.
King Alcinous has a conflict with the contrast between him and the neighbors.Polyphemus,(sometimes simply called "the Cyclops") that wild race of cannibalistic one-eyed giant, and his fellow brutes have no laws, no councils, and no traditions of civility or hospitality.
When Odysseus' curiosity leads him to Polyphemus' cave, his men want to raid it and leave.
As a son of Poseidon and nearly as powerful as the gods, Polyphemus scoffs at the concept of hospitality and welcomes his guests by devouring two for supper.
