After this, the men agree with their fellow shipmate. They eat the cattle while Odysseus is sleeping. Lord Helios finds out and tells Zeus. The men don't realize the consequences of their actions, and Zeus shocks their ship with his thunderbolt, nearly destroying the entire ship. Another example of “the pitfalls of temptation” is when birdlike-creatures try to lure Odysseus’ men away from their boat.

He calls on the “spirits of the dead” and “wandering ministers” so that the “cursed and hellish monster drink deep of agony” and feel “the despair that now torments me”(179). The monster is also capable of wanton destruction when he burns down the DeLaceys’ house and dances “with fury around the devoted cottage”(123) like a savage. Finally, the monster seems to enjoy the pain he causes Frankenstein: “your sufferings will satisfy my everlasting hatred” (181) he writes to Victor.

Once Odyssey got to the adventure, “The Lotus-Eaters”, he learned that these men were addicted to the Honey Flower, Lotus, they meant no harm but only to share the Lotus plant that made whoever were to eat it loss hope of home.

Pi then goes on to talk about how he and his brother discover a Christian church one day, and his brother dares him to go drink the Holy Water.
