Matthew Dorang, 3rd period. This story portrays the story of Odysseus and Polyphemus. In which Odysseus and his crew encounter Polyphemus. After trying to get Polyphemus to give gifts to Odysseus, Polyphemus killed some of his men. In response to this, Odysseus and several of his men blinded Polyphemus. After the blinding of Polyphemus, Odysseus and his crew escaped by sneaking out underneath Polyphemus's sheep.
