To even climb to the top of the cable is courageous enough, but to fight a man in his prime on top of the cable, is a whole different story. “Coke and Dr. Warsaw grabbed hold of each other and started wrestling on the cable. One slip, they both knew, and one or both of them would fall to their death. “Watch out!” Pep shouted.“Be careful, Coke!” hollered Mrs.

In one moment in the story, Odysseus has escaped a giant, Polyphemus, and boasted his name in anger, which led to Polyphemus “Breaking off the peak of a huge crag/ He threw it toward our ship, and it carried to just in front of our dark prow” (9, 481-483).
