Transcript of Deceptions

Sea rovers here take joy
Voyaging onward,
As from our song of Troy
Graybeard and rower-boy
Goeth more learned. The Sirens tell Odysseus that going to their island will bring him joy. They use rhyming and a sweet song to lure him into their trap. "Odysseus tells the cyclops his name is 'Nohbdy'
so that he doesn't find out his true identity
and the other cylopese will think 'nobody' is in
his cave." 'Comrades,' he said, 'You've gone through everything; listen to what I say. All deaths are hateful to us, mortal wretches buy famine is the most pitiful, the worst end that a man can come to.' Eurylochus persuades Odysseus's men to eat the cattle even though Odysseus told them not to. He says that they deserve it because of what they've been through, but they'll go through worse because of it.
"They felll in, soon enough, with the Lotus-Eaters, who showed no will to do us harm, only offering the sweet Lotus to our friends- but those who ate this honeyed plant, the Lotus, never cared to report, not to return: they longed to stay forever, browsing on the native bloom, forgetful of their homeland." The Lotus-Eaters gave Odysseus's men
the Lotus Flower to eat so that they
wouldn't care about reporting back
to Odysseus. They were decieved by the Lotus-Eaters because Odysseus had to force them back onto the ship in order to save their lives. "But as I sent them on toward Scylla, I told them nothing, as they could do nothing. They would have dropped their oars again, in panic, to roll for cover inder the decking." Odysseus doesn't tell his men about the monster ahead of them, so the men aren't prepared. Six men get eaten, even though Odysseus tries to protect them. Deception 'Cyclops, you ask my honorable name? Remember the gift you promised me, and I shall tell you. My name is Nohbdy: mother, father, and friends, everyone calls me Nohbdy.'
