  • Odysseus and his men arrive at the island of Polyphemus, the Cyclops. "Now, a level island stretches flat across the harbor, not close inshore to the Cyclops' coast, not too far out, thick with woods where the wild goats breed by hundreds." 128-131
  • Odysseus takes his men into the cave of the Cyclops where they decide to spend a night or two. One night, the Cyclops returns. "And back he came from pasture, late in the day, herding his flocks home, and lugging a huge load of good dry logs to fuel his fire at supper." 263-265
  • Odysseus and his men defeat the Cyclops by spearing him in the eye and blinding him after they get him drunk and asleep. But Odysseus lets his pride overcome him when he tells the Cyclops his name. "And now I ordered my shipmates all to cast lots-who'd brave it out with me to hoist our stake and grind it into his eye when sleep had overcome him." 370-373
