Why rile the beast again?’”(9.550), but Odysseus’ provocation of the cyclops is not hindered by their pleas. 2: After escaping the cyclops, Odysseus expresses overconfidence, leading to the taunting of the cyclops, while his crew cries, “‘Why rile the beast again?’” for fear that Odysseus would be further tempted to lengthen their journey home. 3: Odysseus’ temptation to affront the cyclops, Polyphemus, leaves his crew bothered by his actions, because when Odysseus crewmates are watchful and wary of temptation, Odysseus falls into its trap time and time

Considering the fact Polyphemus is the son of Poseidon, the cyclops calls out to him and therefore starts the troublesome voyage for Odysseus back home.

They were bright blue, eyes that in this frustration seemed bolting and nearly mad” (48). However, his obsession with hunting is shown as early as chapter 2, “ But if there was a snake we’d hunt and kill it. We’re going to hunt pigs to get meat for everybody” (36).
Jack still has his initial innocence but later Golding shows how Jack will break his morals. Later Jack finally kills the pig and to support the fact that Jack did not have the heart to kill the pig. As well as the twitch his dream of, “memories of the knowledge that had come to them when they closed in on the struggling pig, knowledge that they had outwitted a living thing, imposed their will upon it, taken away its life like a long satisfying drink” (Golding 70) To show how much it was bothering him. Jack,one of the most evil in the book and could be said to have the the leader role in the madness. The quote shows his innocence that completely contrast Jacks personality later in “The Lord of the

Cattle being dumb creature are now given an animal that they can be smarter than. The serpent is also restricted to only the ground, squirming and eating from the dust, which is where life returns in
Odysseus keeps his men from hearing their tune and they make it past. Next, he goes by the beast Scylla and the whirlpool Charybdis. Five men are eaten, and the rest go to the island of Helios Hyperion, the sun (Homer, Odyssey). Circe warned him not to eat the cows but rather they did at any rate. When they cruise away, Zeus demolishes their boat to rebuff their irreverence (Homer, Odyssey).
Eurylochus got what he deserved because Odysseus told them to swear they wouldn 't eat the cattle and they all told Odysseus they wouldn 't. Eurylochus made the whole crew turn against Odysseus and disobey his orders. Eurylochus convinced the crew to go behind Odysseus’ back and do what they were told not while Odysseus was sleeping by saying “Comrades, he said, you 've gone through everything; listen to what I say.
