Question Description

I don’t know how to handle this question and need guidance.

Ok I have this paper I need to write about and I need help with this question. You don't have to give me the answer, just tell me what to write about(what to start with. Almost like a thesis statement) Here is the question:

Examine closely the cyclops scene(9.125-566)and the various portrayals of the suitors, but especially of the slaying of the suitors and the aftermath. What does the Cyclops scene share in common with the situation with the suitors? How do they differ in important aspects?(Note: superficialities, like "one is a Cyclops and the others are men" are not important in and of themselves. You have to make a case why any differences, as well as similarities, are important to the text.)
