Paraphrase the passage below from The Odyssey:
A Prodigious Man Slept in this cave alone and took his flocks to graze afield remote from all companions knowing none but savage ways a brute so huge he seemed no man at all of those who eat good wheaten bread but he seemed rather a shaggy mountian reared in solitude.

This is a description of Polyphemus, the Cyclops. He is a very large man who lived alone. There were other Cyclopes on the island, but Polyphemus kept to himself and didn't have anything to do with the others. He is not refined. He is like a wild animal with no manners.
