Storyboard Text

  • Zeus' Storm
  • The Lotus-Eaters
  • On the Island
  • Odysseus and his men are traveling to the Land of the Lotus-Eaters and Cyclopes, due to the 9-day storm that Zeus caused.
  • In the Cave
  • I'll eat you now, and the rest of you later!
  • Odysseus' men are fed intoxicating fruit from the natives of the land. They are dragged out and captured by Odysseus, as the only way to get them off the island.
  • Odysseus' Plan
  • Odysseus and his men feast on wild goats on an island offshore before crossing to the mainland of the Cyclopses.
  • The Final Escape
  • Poseidon! Let him not reach home safely!
  • Hmmm..
  • Once on the island, Odysseus and his men immediately discover a large cave filled with milk, cheese and sheep. Although his men wish to leave, Odysseus stays to meet the inhabitant of the cave, Polyphemus, son of Poseidon.
  • After Polyphemus returns the next morning, Odysseus has already devised a plan to escape. He intoxicated the Cyclops and stabs him in the eye with a fiery stick. He also deceives the blinded Cyclops by telling him his name is 'Noman', therefore nobody helps him.
  • After using the Cyclops to move the large boulder blocking the cave, Odysseus ties his men to the bottom of sheep to help escape. After deserting the island, Polyphemus prays to Poseidon for the lack of safety for Odysseus' journey home.
