Reaching a island, Odysseus and his men "saw a cavern yawning above the water, screened with laurel, and many rams and goats about the place inside a sheepfold... tall trunks of pine and rugged towering oak trees"(Homer 956) and drifted toward the island.
Odysseus and his men enter the cave and saw a huge creature, Odysseus being the curious man he is "wished to see the cave man, what he had to offer" (Homer 958) and stayed put.
After his some of his men were eaten, Odysseus and the rest of them were stuck in the cave, Odysseus comes up with a plan, he "hewed again to make a stake with pointed end, I held this the fires heart and turned it, toughening it, then hid it"(Homer 960), they stayed in the cave until the right moment.
The Cyclops soon asks what Odysseus's name was, Odysseus lies and says "My name is Nohbdy: mother, father, and friends, everyone calls me Nohbdy"(Homer 961). This lie helps him.
My name is "Nohbdy"
The time has come, Odysseus gets his men ready "with battle talk to keep courage up"(Homer 962). They came in and "lifted it, and rammed it deep in his crater eye"(962). Now the cyclops is blinded.
Odysseus escapes the cave and retreats onto his boat and rows away, while he rides away he talks back and says "Cyclops, if ever mortal man inquire how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye: Laertes' son, whose homes on Ithaca"(Homer 965). Now heads home.
