There are 2 morals to this story. The first moral is around forgiveness. Polyphemus was able to forgive Odysseus for blinding him and helped him to recover. As a result, he was rewarded with his eyesight. The second moral is that pride and ego get punished. In Odysseus’ case, Poseidon shipwrecked him on the island of Polyphemus as punishment for blinding the Cyclops. Poseidon, Lord of the Sea, used prophecy and ultimately decided the fate of both Odysseus and Polyphemus. He also used his powers to control their destiny by sending a storm to Odysseus and shipwrecking him.
This comic strip is a creative interpretation of Homer’s The Odyssey Book IX, using his original characters of Odysseus, the hero, Polyphemus, a mythological creature and Poseidon, god of the sea and protector of all aquatic features. A scene from the 1954 film ‘Ulysses’ was used as the background in the 8th scene to show the setting of Polyphemus’ island. The scenery and landscape was traditionally used in Ancient Greek mythology to add to the drama and suspense of the story.
