Let's stay here and wait for the owner of the cave to come. Maybe he will help us.
Odysseus, we should leave before we get into more trouble.
Why are you here? Well, now you're staying. Delicious. You're next.
Odysseus and his men are trying to get back to Ithaca after fighting in the Trojan War, and they have faced many struggles in getting home. They finally arrive in the land of the Cyclops, very hungry.
I have a plan. We can stab the eye of Polyphemus and blind him.
Odysseus and his men go onto the island and find a cave of sheep and milk. Odysseus' men advise Odysseus to grab the food and leave quickly, but he decides to stay there longer. Polyphemus, a Cyclops, and Poseidon's son, finds them there.
Help! Nobody is killing me!
Polyphemus, a Cyclops, and Poseidon's son, finds them there. Polyphemus eats two of Odysseus' men and captures Odysseus and the remaining men in his cave, for them to be eaten later.
Odysseus and his men come up with a plan to stab the eye of Polyphemus out and blind him. While he is out, they sharpen a piece of wood in the fire.
When Polyphemus asks Odysseus what his name is, Odysseus replies with "Nobody," so Polyphemus thinks that is his name. When Odysseus stabs Polyphemus, Polyphemus screams that Nobody is killing him, so no one comes to help him.
Now, Polyphemus is blind, and they could kill him if they wanted to. They decide not to, because then they would be trapped in the cave, since none of them can open it. Instead, they tie themselves under the sheep and when Polyphemus lets his sheep out, they escape as well.
