STORIES OF GREECE AND ROME
THE STORY OF ULYSSES

pray to Zeus for help. When the giant had ended his foul meal, he lay down among his sheep and slept.
Then Ulysses questioned much in his heart whether he should slay the monster as he slept, for he did not doubt that his good sword would pierce the giant's heart, mighty as he was. But, being very wise, he remembered that, should he slay him, he and his comrades would yet perish miserably. For who would move away, the great rock that lay against the door of the cave? So they waited till the morning. When the monster awoke, he milked his flocks, and afterwards, seizing two men, devoured them for his meal. Then he went to the pastures, but first he put the great rock at the mouth of the cave again.
All that day the wise Ulysses was thinking what he could do to save himself and his companions, and he formed this plan. There was a mighty pole in the cave, green wood of an olive tree, as big as a ship's mast, which Polyphemus intended to use, when the smoke had dried it, as a walkingstaff. Of this Ulysses cut off a piece, and his comrades
sharpened it and hardened it in the fire, and then hid it away. At evening the giant came back and drove his sheep and rams into the cave. Having done his shepherd's work, he made his cruel feast as before. Then Ulysses came forward with the wine-skin in his hand, and said:
"Drink, Cyclops, now that you have feasted. Drink, and see what precious things we had in our ship. But no one hereafter will come to you with such a gift, if you treat strangers as cruelly as you have treated us."
Then the Cyclops drank and was pleased, and said:
"Give me again to drink, and tell me your name, stranger, and I will give you a gift such as a host should give. Truly this is a rare drink. We, too, have vines, but they bear not wine like this, which indeed must be such as the gods drink."
