They stopped on the island to rest on their journey home, and they sacked Ismarus because they were still in combat mode. The gods punished them for this because the gods did not understand that soldiers stay in combat mode after war. Odysseus killed all the suitors who were trying to
Zeus stuck them all with a bolt of lighting and killed all, except Odysseus. Odysseus, like me, finished the journey “but not with our friends”. (855) In The Odyssey, Odysseus faces many challenges and repeatedly loses the men in his crew. First, he loses them to Circe when they're turned into pigs, then six men were killed by the monster Scylla, and lastly Zeus killed the remaining men. Like Odysseus, through out my journey known as high school, I have faced many “heavy losses” (841) due to bad behavior and heartbreaking
It was the same Cyclops that Odysseus and his men stabbed in the cave. After the Trojan War, Odysseus blamed all of the gods for not helping them through the war that lasted ten years. After Odysseus blamed the gods, Poseidon, started creating bad seas forcing him not to
Some people might argue that Odysseus is a hero because he won the Trojan War for the Greece and ended the ten-year long fight. But, yet he killed many of the innocent that lived in Troy without any thought about the children or women. It shows in the book that they slaughtered everyone in Troy and didn’t give any of them proper burial, which was mean that the people that died can’t move on. This shows that he is a cold-hearted killer that doesn’t care about any others
Hera agreed to trick my brother by distracting him and I went of to war. I was of great usefulness to the greeks because well I am a god and I created the horse, which was used to drive a chariot.

It is now the end of my story, I have had many great adventures, created many creatures, loved many times, and have had many heroic children. Mortals will continue to fight and bring much entertainment to the gods, just as long as people will worship

While Odysseus gets angry with Polyphemus earlier in the story by saying, “...who dared to eat your own guests in your own house.” (9.479) Odysseus wants to kill every one of the suitors that is trying to marry Penelope, Odysseus 's wife. He could’ve easily have forced them to leave because of how powerful he is. He shows violence and no mercy towards almost everything. Odysseus resorts to violence in all situations to get what he needs done. He contradicts himself when talking to Polyphemus about eating his own guests because in reality, he most likely would´ve killed anyone who stepped foot into his home.
Throughout The Odyssey, Odysseus conveys his arrogance and conceitedness in many ways. The godlike man can’t help but let Polyphemus know who he is. When he was at Phaeacia he showed up the young heros. And when he got home he killed all the suitors with his son. All of these things secure the Son of Laertes in the line of Zeus with glory and honor.
Zeus was the god of the sky and ruler of the Olympian gods. He overthrew his father, Cronus, and then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades, in order to decide who would succeed their father on the throne.

Minos was infuriated, and demanded Aegeus the king of Athens to send seven men and women every year to the Minotaur to advert the plague caused by the death of Androgeus.
