An Early Telling of the Odyssey
17 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Odysseus (Ulysses) is on an island and falls asleep. While a sleep, some maidens (sirens?) come upon him. They dance, play music, throw flowers on him (lotuses?). He awakens and they run away, except for one (Circe?). He pleads with her for some reason; maybe it's romantic; maybe he's under the spell of the flowers. Who should show up but a cyclops. The weak thing is that he has an eye on his forehead, but he has two other eyes. They are just closed. All we have is a head and Ulysses sticks a spear in his eye as all manner of ooze comes out of it. The story lacks any suspense and no real defense from the cyclops. Could have been much better.
