“Nohbdy, Nohbdy’s tricked me. Nohbdy’s ruined me!”
The clever Odysseus fooled the Cyclops. Since the false name Odysseus gave Polyphemus sounded like Nobody the neighbors returned to their daily lives since they thought nothing had been done to him, leaving Polyphemus to pray.
Odysseus and his men had to escape, so he used Polyphemus’ rams. He tied them together using cords of willow and each man was strapped underneath the animal, and then shielded by the wool. They waited underneath the animal until dawn. Polyphemus had woken up, patted his ram, blind to the men hiding underneath it, and then sent them out into the open. After the rams walked a certain distance, they rolled out.
Polyphemus letting his sheep out. He felt the top to make sure none of the men were trying to escape among the sheep.
The clever way the men had tricked Polyphemus.
As they were leaving, Odysseus mocks Polyphemus by telling him how he had been fooled and revenge was sweetly granted. Polyphemus was furious and so he threw a hilltop at them, causing a giant wave in the water. Then, summoned was the grand and wondrous wizard- “Telemus.” Telemus casts a spell on Odysseus, wishing that he will not see his home again, and if he does, he will lose all his companions, living out his days miserably.
