This storyboard does not have a description.
Once Odysseus and his men arrive on the island, they approach the cave of the Cyclops and discover rams and cheeses.
I wish to see the caveman and what he has to offer.
"'Why not take these cheeses, get them stowed, come back, throw open all the pens, and make a run for it?'"
Come, let us explore this cave of the Cyclops!
"When he came he had a load of dry boughs on his shoulder to stoke his fire at suppertime. He dumped it with a great crash into that hollow cave, and we all scattered fast to the far wall."
The Cyclops did not welcome Odysseus and his men because he did not feel he should have to serve them, as he was the son of the god Poseidon. Odysseus soon became filled with rage after the Cyclops ate many of his men.
Odysseus gets the Cyclops drunk and blinds him by stabbing him in the eye. The Cyclops begins to erupt with anger and tries to find and kill Odysseus and his men. The next morning, Odysseus and his men hide under the rams and escape the cave.
"Cyclops, if ever mortal man inquire how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye: Laertes' son, whose home's on Ithaca!"
Odysseus had previously told the Cyclops that his name was Nohbdy, so as Odysseus' ship sailed off, he confronted the Cyclops one last time to tell him who he really was.
