    Lotus Eaters

    A storm sent by Zeus sends them along for nine days before bringing them to the land of the Lotus-eaters, where the natives give some of Odysseus's men the intoxicating fruit of the lotus. As soon as they eat this fruit, they lose all thoughts of home and want nothing more than to stay there eating more fruit.

    Lotus Eater 2

    When Odysseus and his crew run across a Cyclops' deserted cave, his men want to steal, but Odysseus won't let them.
    Instead, he wants to treat the Cyclops like a human being and play the part of good guests (more on that hospitality thing). So they burn an offering in the monster's cave and wait for his return.

    Lotus Eater 3

    the Cyclops soon returns, driving in his herd of sheep and closing the entrance of the cave behind him with a huge boulder.
    he doesn't want to play along.After some bantering he refuses their suggestion of hospitality—he doesn't care for Zeus' rules about being good guests and hosts.
    Odysseus draws his sword to kill the Cyclops in his sleep, but he stops when he realizes that they can never escape the cave without the strength of the Cyclops to remove the gigantic rock at the entrance.
