If you are reading out of a Literature book, you most likely are reading the Fitzgerald translation as a 9th grade student. I will answer from that point of view.The entire story is dangerous situation after dangerous situation, so depending on how long your teacher believes the beginning is, the first few events truly put this in motion.First, when Odysseus sails with his men from Troy, winds blow them to a place called Ismarus. There they fight the Cicones, but Odysseus’ men are outnumbered… and drunk. This certainly puts him in danger, but the biggest trigger happens in two landings later.At Cyclops Island, Odysseus tricks Polyphemus. This was not very smart because Polyphemus is Posideon’s son… Posideon is the god of the sea, who for a large portion of the story makes it difficult for Odysseus to get home since he needs the sea to get there.
