Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus and his men continue to make their journey home. Odysseus recieves a warning from Circes that his next obstacle will be the Sirens. The Sirens are rumored to be half bird, half woman. They sing a song that lures men to jump overboard to their death.
  • To protect themselves from the sirens' song, the crew puts beeswax in their ears. Odysseus being the stubborn man he is, informs his crew to tie him up so that he can hear the sounds of the sirens.
  • In the words of Odysseus, "Soon as we came smartly within hailing distance,the two sirens, noting our fast ship off their point, made ready, and they sang."
  • ♩♬♫♩
  • "The lovely voices in ardor appealing over the water made me crave to listen, and I tried to say, 'untie me,' to the crew, jerking my brows; but they bent steady to the oars."
  • "Untie me!"
  • ♩♬♫♩
  • "Then Perimedes got to his feet, he and Eurylochus, and passed more line about, to hold me still."
  • ♩♬
  • "So we all rowed on, until the sirens dropped under the sea-rim, and their singing dwindled away." Odysseus and his crew continued his journey towards home, unaware of what lies ahead.
