Chapter 9Ody admits and tells who he is to King Alctinous and story of what happened to himFrom Troy, the winds sweep him and his men to Ismarus, city of the Cicones. The men plunder the land and, carried away by greed, stay until the reinforced ranks of the Cicones turn on them and attack. Odysseus and his crew finally escape, having lost six men per ship. A storm sent by Zeus sweeps 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 long for nothing more than to stay there eating more fruit. Only by dragging his men back to the ship and locking them up can Odysseus get them off the island.Ody compares how to Cyclops have no care for what they do ody aquired wine from Maron, Euanthe's son, a priest worship Apollo for rescuing wife and childrenOnce in cave Ody and his men saw flocks and children in cages, men suggest to take it, but ody decline and waited with men of the host Cyclops saw men and ody introduce, cyclops ask where ship, but ody reply got destroy though it's off coast somewhere The cyclops kill 2 his men and trapped them in cages, ody thought of stabbing him, but the boulder is blocking the exit and waited until sunriseThey thought of plan of giving him wine and making a big enough spear to stab his eyeThe name he gave to cyclops was nobody and in return he will eat him last, then they stab him Polyphemus neighbors heard the cry and ask what's happening, and tell's him nobody did this, they laugh it offOdy men cling to the bottom of the sheep graze when the cyclops let them out to grazeEscape to ship and the cyclops throw boulder in front of ship, Ody announce his name to the cyclops, full of hubris Polyphemus prays to poseidon to curse Ody for his act, he never reaches home or comes late but all men died Vengance will happen to Ody cuz of announcing his name Chapter 10 Aeolian, Aeolus, insets of son and daughters, give Ody a bag of wind 10 days sail almost reaching Itachea, but ody men suspect he was keeping gold from them by Aeolus, open it and was brought back to Aeolus Ody beg for wind to sail him back, but Aeolus refuse thinking the gods hate him and will curse him 7 days they row and landed on Laestrygonian land, send scouts to meet Antiphates daughter to the King, eat the 2 men and howl giants to appearEveryone one except Ody ship sank Aeaean Island is the next stop, Ody scouted first, and saw fire and thought of feeding his men first and send them insteadThey scouted into 2 squads of 20 one by Ody and Eurylochus Euryl group went first and was invited in by Circe's, only Euryl sense a trap and stay out, his men were turned into pig, swines, etcEuryl reported backand suggest to leave the island, but Ody doesn't want to Herme's met with Ody as a young adult and suggest eating a plant molly to protect against Circe's curse Have her obey a swear truth to return his men normal and no harm shall come to them, and sleep with herOnly Euryl had doubts of going back to Circe's halls and stay behind the ship, after ody came back, 1 year they stayed with Circe Circe advise Ody to go to underworld and seek Tiresias for helpElpenor the youngest got drink he fell off ship and kill himself, representing too much  Chapter 11Ody went to Underworld, put milk/ honey / mellow wine/ water/ glistering barely on the land of the dead in Cimmerian  Sacrafice the black ram to Tiresias's and other animals, then let no ghost pass First was Elpenor explain he should get a burial instead of left on the islandThen Anticleia the mother of ody showed up and ody wouldn't let her past Tiresia's showed up and was allow to drank the blood of the ram Head to Thrinacia Island to where Helios the sun god, and not harm the cattle or your ship and men be destroy and if you do survive then you come home lateAnticleia was shot down by Artemis, and three times ody try to grasp but couldn't Agmemnon was killed by his wife Clytemnestra Other heroes try to talk with Ody but he was frightened away Chapter 12Landed on Aeaea to bury Elpenor body for a proper burrial Circe told Ody about the siren's, only ody needs to hear them and not draw too close to them, he have them put beewax in their earsThen past them to choose between passing a whirlpool or scylla a monster 6 heads, better to lose 6 men than entire crew and shipOnce on Thrinacia, sun cattle is immortal and meat moves, only think of Ithaca Eury started a mutiny about going on land to find cattle, ody ask swear oath, all swear not eat cattleAfter 1 month crew urged to hunt, when ody asleep, eury arise other crew to hunt After eating the cattle Helios got mad, Zeus punish them with lighting and sank ship in ocean   Then was washed up where calypso was at
