The Cyclops’ Cave – Escape and Prophecy

Today we will look at the plan that Odysseus created in order to get out of a seemingly impossible situation.

Learning Target: The role of the Prophecy in “The Odyssey”.

After reading and discussing the following pages, we will look at the video version of events.  (35:09 to 54:57 in the Youtube video).

Classwork Due (20 points): 

  1. What was the most effective part of Odysseus’ plan, in your opinion?
  2. After the escape, the Cyclops puts a ‘curse’ or prohesies doom for Odysseus and his crew.  How does that relate to what we learned on page 1 of The Odyssey?

Todays Reading and Discussion:

My Udemy classes are here – extremely low price and you have them forever.

I also sell custom made mugs like this one here on Amazon. I’ll do personalized orders as well. They are all made in the United States – in Pennsylvania.

All of the mugs are here on Gearbubble. These are made in the USA, and if you don’t want to contribute to Amazon’s record profits during this time of CV19, the Gearbubble link is the one to use. Thank you!
