The Odyssey

question i need help with!!!!


(page 374- 385)

[line 56-67] 1)How would you describe the values of the Cyclopes?

says: "In the next land we found were Cyclops, giants, louts, without a law to bless them. In ignorance leaving the fruitage of the earth in mystery to the immortal gods, they neither plow nor sow bye hand, nor till the ground, though grain-- wild wheat and barley -- grows untended, and wine grapes, in clusters, ripen in heavens rain. Cyclops have no muster and no meeting, no consultation or old tribal ways, but each on dwells in his own mountain cave dealing out rough justice to wife and child, indifferent to what the others do...."

They are monsters, I'm not sure they are supposed to have morals or values. They are not that bright and seem to like alcohol. At least they don't kill Odyssius right away. I'm not sure I follow this. 

Thats what I thought too but i wasnt sure so I asked the question just in case. :)
