Odysseus sent three men to see what the land of the Lotus Eaters, who live on the flower, is about. The three men had gotten fed the Lotus and now they had no desire to go back to the ship or go back home. That is why Odysseus had to get them and then we sailed off. I saw that Odysseus will not let us loose our determination to sailing back home.

    Odysseus sent three men to see what the land [possible capitalization of L here] of the Lotus Eaters, who LIVED on the flower, WAS [watch your tenses] about. The three men had gotten fed the Lotus and now they had no desire to go back to the ship or TO go back home. That is why Odysseus had to get them*.* [I would separate this into two sentences] *Then,* we sailed off. I saw that Odysseus WOULD not let us LOSE (loose vs lose. look up the definitions of these two VERY DIFFERENT words] our determination to sailing back home.
