  • When Polyphemus has fallen asleep, Odysseus takes a poker   from the fire, and drives it into the Cyclops's eye. Polyphemus calls for help from the other Cyclops, and they ask who hurt   him. He replies with the name Odysseus gave him: Nobody
  • The next morning, Polyphemus the sheep out of the    cave to graze, and being blind, he felt their backs in   case the men tried to escape. But Odysseus and his   men had strapped themselves to the underside of the sheep, so they escape.
  •  They escape on a ship, and Odysseus calls out his       true name. But Polyphemus is the son of Poseidon, so he asks for his father to punish Odysseus.
