My faithful comrades, wait for me: I'll take my ship and crew to see who these may be.
Odysseus and his men arrive at the island of the cyclops.
Odysseus and of his men finds the cyclops' cave.
Odysseus and his men are trapped inside by the cyclops.
Who are you? And what was the land you sailed out on water paths?
My name is Nobody.
The cyclops is stabbed in the eye by Odysseus and his men, but when the others come to his aid, he says "Nobody" has blinded him.
No force can damage me, Nobody is using treachery
Since the cyclops is now blind, Odysseus and his men are able to hide under the sheep and escape.
Full of rage, Polyphemus sends a prayer to his father, Poseidon.
¨O hear me, lord, blue girdler of the islands, if I am thine indeed, and thou art father: grant that Odysseus, raider of cities, never see his home: Laertes’ son, I mean, who kept his hall on Ithaca. Should destiny intend that he shall see his roof again among his family in his fatherland, far be that day, and dark the years between. Let him lose all companions, and return under strange sail to bitter days at home.’ . . .”
