Transcript of Curiosity

Curiosity? Odysseus has a large curiosity for what
lies within the Land of the Cyclops.
As he enters the cave, he thinks that since
he has help win the war in Troy, that he can
go to a Cyclops's home and not have a problem. "Ah, how sound that was! Yet i refused,
I wished to see the cave man, what he had
to offer- no pretty sight, it turned out, for
my friends." What Odysseus did not know was that
he was about to go on a journey that would
take the life of six of his best fighters.
But, his curiosity still drove him to go
and explore the island. He thinks that because the law in
that area is to accept strangers, and
bring gifts, that the Cyclops will give them
food and water. But the Cyclops do not have
laws or rules, and they do as they please.
Odysseus makes a fool of himself, because he
knows that his curiosity takes him too far. He
wants to know what the Cyclops are like, and
also wants to maybe obtain food. In the Land of the Lotus-Eaters, Odysseus tells
his men to go and see what is on the island.
He wonders what type of men are on the island,
showing his curiosity.
"Then I sent out two picked men and a runner
to learn what race of men that land sustained." when odysseus and his men sail to Aeolia, king aeolus
gives Odysseus a gift. He gives Odysseus a sack of winds containing all the winds except the favorable west wind. when Odysseus and his men are near home his men open the sack, letting loose a storm that drives them back to Aeolia. This shows that his men were curious of what lies in the sack. By: Madison Eller and Neil RAval
