Hello good sir. do you mind offering your hospitality?
After Odysseus sailed towards the island of the Cyclops, he gathered his twelve best fighters and waded ashore with each one beside him. The men were anxious because they were risking their lives to see if the cyclops had any hospitality to shelter them.
You all can stay here until I come back to eat you
Would you like this bowl full of wine?
Odysseus and his crew of twelve fighters climbed into the cave and hid themselves. Polyphemus was in the field tending to his flock of sheep that were grazing, so he was unaware of the thirteen men entering his home.
As the day wore on, Polyphemus entered the cave and started to do his day’s work when he noticed the strangers in his cave. When the crewmates started conversing with the monster, they described how they came about him and his island.
After their story was told and heard by the cyclops, he suddenly snatched two of Odysseus’s mates and ate them. As morning arrived, Polyphemus made a fire, rose up, and rolled the stone over the doorway, trapping the unwanted visitors inside of the cavernous area.
At evening time, the shepherd and his flock came back to their nighttime shelter, and the creature did the same chores as the day before. However, Odysseus offered him some glorious wine, and the cyclops arrogantly downed the entire bowl, becoming a drunken cyclops, calling for more.
After Polyphemus finished the bowl full of wine, he went right into a deep sleep.After he made a plan, Odysseus drove his hot spike into the cyclop’s eye, which was his most vulnerable spot. Polyphemus woke up immediately and bellowed in rage, groping his new injury.
