Hospitality may seem like an odd theme for an epic piece of fiction yet it resonates throughout The Odyssey. As Odysseus and his men encounter different creatures and civilizations, hospitality is at the core of their experience. The cyclops encounter is no different. Cyclops (Polyphemus) makes it clear that he does not abide to any code of hospitality. He makes fun of the Gods who support as well as Odysseus for expecting it.
