Polyphemus is the Cyclops that Odysseus meets.
One by intoxicating Polyphemus and Two by saying his name is Nohbdy, so he could never track all of the events that happened between them, back to Odysseus.
Polyphemus attempts to trick Odysseus and his men into revealing where their ship is, among other information. There is no need for him to be overtly antagonistic until he wants to eat the men.
Polyphemus was the son of Poseidon, who hated Odysseus.
His men tied themselves to the bellies of Polyphemus' sheep.
No. Polyphemus and Odysseus become mortal enemies.
Odysseus gives Polyphemus some wine, and Polyphemus promises to eat him last. Odysseus prevents Polyphemus from eating him by blinding Polyphemus, and then escaping from his cave.Before the escape attempt, Odysseus is powerless before Polyphemus, and is saved from being eaten only by fate.
Odysseus simply offers the cyclops wine. The cyclops has never had wine, so has a low tolerance to alcohol.
Polyphemus hadn't known that it was Odysseus in his house. Odysseus had lied and told Polyphemus (the cyclops) that his name was Nobody. Odysseus and his crew had also blinded Polyphemus.
yes polyphemus was mad odysseus and stabed him with a carving nife :)
Odysseus blinded Polyphemus so that him and his men could escape.
Polyphemus was the son of Poseidon, who hated Odysseus. Polyphemus knew nothing of Odysseus until he found Odysseus and his men in Polyphemus' cave, although he was once told by the sage Telemus that he would be blinded someday by a man named Odysseus.
