Chorus-Leader Listen, Odysseus. We would like a little chat with you. Odysseus Of course, since you are my friends and I am yours. Chorus-Leader Did you capture Troy and take Helen prisoner? Odysseus Yes, and we sacked the whole house of the sons of Priam. Chorus-Leader Once you had caught the girl, didn't you all then take turns banging her, since she takes pleasure in having more than one mate? The traitoress! She saw the parti-colored breeches on the man's legs and the gold necklace are done for, old man. Where should we flee to? Silenus Inside this cave, where you could avoid being seen. Odysseus A dangerous suggestion, this, going into the net. Silenus No danger: there are many hiding-places in the cave. Odysseus I shall not do it. Troy would groan loudly if I were to run from a single man when I stood my ground so often, shield in hand, against a throng of Trojans without number. Rather, if I must die, I will die nobly—or live on and also retain my old reputation.

ot, which when it has reached a boil will clothe your ill-clad bodies nicely. Now go inside in order that you may stand around the altar of the god who dwells within and give me sumptuous entertainment. Odysseus Oh, alas, I have escaped toils at Troy and on the sea only to put in now at the fierce and harborless heart of this godless man! O Pallas Athena, Zeus's divine daughter, now, now is the time to help me. For I have come into trouble greater than at Troy and to the very uttermost of dane fierce and harborless heart of this godless man! O Pallas Athena, Zeus's divine daughter, now, now is the time to help me. For I have come into trouble greater than at Troy and to the very uttermost of danger. And you, Zeus, Protector of Guests, who dwell in the bright realm of the stars, look on these things. For if you take no note of them, men mistakenly think you are the god Zeus, when you are in fact no god at all.The Cyclops herds Odysseus and his men into the cave. Silenus follows.

r!Exit the Cyclops, with the reluctant Silenus, into the cave. Odysseus Come, Dionysus' children, noble offspring, the man's within and soon, relaxed in sleep, he'll belch his meat out from his shameless maw. Inside the hall the fire-brand is ready, sending forth smoke, and there is nothing left to do but to burn out the Cyclops' eye. But now you must show your manhood. Chorus-Leader Our hearts shall be like rock or adamant! But go into the house before my father suffers some awful disaster. From this quarter all is ready for you. Odysseus Hephaestus, lord of Aetna, burn out the bright eye of this pest, your neighbor, and be quit of him for good! And you, Sleep, child of black Night, come with undiluted force against this god-detested beast! After his glorious deeds at Troy do not let Odysseus, himself and his men, die at the hands of a man who heeds not gods or men! Otherwise, we will have to regard Chance as God and the gods as weaker than Chance.Exit Odysseus into the cave.

e in the world are you? Odysseus At some distance, where I can keep watch over the body of Odysseus here. Cyclops What? This is a new name you use. Odysseus The very one my father gave me, [Odysseus,]The repeated name looks suspicious. It may have ousted an expression like‘(a name) derived from “anger,”’ an allusion to the derivation of Odysseus' name from o)dussasqai, ‘to be angry at’ or ‘to hate.’ and you were destined, it seems, to pay the penalty for your ungodly feast. For my burning Troy to the ground would have been a sorry deed if I had not punished you for the murder of my companions. Cyclops Oh, oh, an ancient prophecy is now being fulfilled! It said that I would be blinded at your hands when you had set out from Troy. But it also prophesied that you would pay the penalty for this by drifting about on the sea for a long time. Odysseus You can go hang, say I! And I have already done what you say I shall do. But now I shall go to the beach and launch my shi

us Greeting, stranger! But tell me your name and country. Odysseus Odysseus, of Ithaca, lord of Cephallene. Silenus I know of the man, the wheedling chatterer, Sisyphus' son.One version of Odysseus' ancestry, alluded to several times in tragedy, makes Anticleia, Odysseus' mother, marry Laertes when she is already pregnant by Sisyphus. Odysseus The very same. But spare me these aspersions. Silenus From what land have you sailed here to Sicily? Odysseus From Ilium and from the fighting at Troy. Silenus What? Did you not know your way home? Odysseus I was driven here by windstorms against my will. Silenus O dear! The fate you suffer is the same as mine. Odysseus Did you also come here against your will? Silenus Yes, chasing the pirates who had carried off Dionysus. Odysseus What is this country, and who are its inhabitants? Silenus This is Mount Aetna, highest in Sicily. Odysseus But where are the walls and city battlements? Silenus There are none. No men dwell in these h
