Odysseus shows that he is clever when he tells the Cyclops, Polyphemus, that his name is Nobody. "Cyclops, you asked my name, and I will tell it: give me afterwards a guest gift as you promised. My Name is Nobody. nobody, my father, mother, and friends call me." When Odysseus and his men stab Polyphemus' eye, and he tells his friends that Nobody is hurting them, they think that his isn't being harmed. "Nobody, my friends, is trying to kill me by violence or treachery."
