Read the excerpt from The Odyssey. Plunder we took, and we enslaved the women, to make division, equal shares to all— but on the spot I told them: 'Back, and quickly! Out to sea again!' My men were mutinous, fools, on stores of wine. Sheep after sheep they butchered by the surf, and shambling cattle, feasting,—while fugitives went inland, running to call to arms the main force of Cicones. Which is the most effective paraphrase of this excerpt? A. When Odysseus and his men arrived on the island of Cicones, they enslaved women and feasted on the sheep and cattle they had butchered by the sea. B. Although Odysseus tells his men that they need to return quickly to the ship, the men are too busy dividing their findings into equal shares for everyone. C. Odysseus warns his men to return to the ship, but many of the men did not listen and instead ran inland to see what else they could take for themselves. D. The men continued their acts of greed despite Odysseus’s commands to stop and return to the ship, and the fugitives of Cicones ran inland to fetch help.
