The Lotus Eaters Adam Smedley

  1. 1. The Lotus Eaters The Ideal Stoners By: Adam Smedley The Lotus Eaters were a tribe of people who lived on an island off the North coast of Africa. They were a care free people who had become enticed by the lotus flower. The lotus flower grows in muddy swamps and is the only flower that is also a fruit. Odysseus and his men arrived on the island of the lotus eaters nine days after the defeat of troy.
  2. 2. This probably wasn’t what Odysseus looked like but there is water in the background! When Odysseus and his men arrived on the island three soldiers were sent to scout the island. When those three men did not return Odysseus had to search for them, and he found them all right. To his horror the men had eaten the lotus. They had no want or intention to return home thus the lotus eaters had ensnared their new victims. Odysseus had to take each man and tie him down to the bench of his ship.
