Storyboard Text

  • ‘Dear friends, no need for stealth: here's a young weaver singing a pretty song to set the air a-tingle on these lawns and paven courts. Goddess she is, or lady. Shall we greet her?' (lines 19-22)
  • "he prepared a meal of cheese and barley and amber honey mixed with Pramnian wine, adding her own vile pinch, to make them lose desire or thought of our dear father land. Scarce had they drunk when she flew after them with her long stick and shut them in a pigsty-bodies, voices, heads, and bristles, all swinish now, though minds were still unchanged."
  • Eurylochus tells Odysseus what has happened and begs his captain to sail away from Circe's island. Against Eurylochus' advice, however, Odysseus rushes to save his men from the enchantress. On the way, he meets the god Hermes, who gives him a magical plant—called moly—to protect him from Circe's power. Still, Hermes warns, Odysseus must make the goddess swear that she will play no "witches' tricks." Armed with the moly and Hermes' warning, Odysseus arrives at Circe's palace. Circe welcomes him and leads him to a magnificent silver-studded chair.
  • Hale must your heart be and your tempered will. Odysseus then you are, O great contender of whom the glittering god with golden wand spoke to me ever, and foretold the black swift ship would carry you from Troy. Put up your weapon in the sheath. We two shall mingle and make love upon our bed. So mutual trust may come of play and love.'
  • I drank, and the drink failed. But she came forward.. I drew my sharpened sword and in one bound held it against her throat.
