In this regard, how does Poseidon make Odysseus?
Although he cannot kill Odysseus, as it is his destiny to return home, he makes every effort to make Odysseus suffer. Odysseus earned Poseidon's wrath by blinding Polyphemus. When Odysseus set sail away from Calypso's island, Poseidon spotted him and caused him to become shipwrecked.
Beside above, does Poseidon forgive Odysseus? Odysseus made his escape but, in his pride, he turned and taunted Polyphemos with cruel insults. Poseidon would not forgive the indignity that Odysseus had visited upon his son and Zeus could not save Odysseus from Poseidon's wrath.
Similarly, you may ask, what curse did Poseidon put on Odysseus?
After Odysseus' crew left and blinded Polyphemus, Polyphemus prayed for vengeance on Odysseus to his father, Poseidon. Poseidon then cursed Odysseus and his men, and caused another storm for them to fight through.
Why did Poseidon get mad at Odysseus?
Mainly, Poseidon hates Odysseus for blinding Polyphemus, who is Poseidon's son. Other reasons include their support for opposing sides in the Trojan war, Poseidon siding with the Trojans and Odysseus with the Greeks.
