Storyboard Text

  • Friends have we never been in danger before this?
  • More fearsome, is it now, then when the Cyclops penned us in his cave? What power he had! Did i not keep my nerve, and use my wits to find a way out for us?
  • I will only be able to take down six people!
  • I will take down all of you guys!
  • I am on port(left).
  • I am on starboard(right).
  • Once Odysseus and his men have past the Siren's island, they must navigate the straits between Scylla and Charybdis. ( Page 1073, lines 756-759). Odysseus tells his men that the Cyclops were really powerful but yet he was able to think of something to escape the challenge. He is saying that there is basically nothing he will not be able to escape from.
  • Let us go!!
  • Scylla is a six-headed monster and when ships pass she can only take down one person per each head. Charybdis is an enormous whirlpool that sucks in the whole entire ship and you are not able to get out so everyone that is on the ship dies. ( page 1074, line 772-781).
  • Don't eat us!
  • Please stop!
  • I haven't had such a tasty lunch in a long period of time.
  • You will never be able to get me Scylla.
  • " Scylla to port, and on our starboard beam Charybdis" (Page 1074, line 796-797). This basically means that Scylla was on the left of their ship and Charybdis was on their right, so Odysseus and his men decide to go left, heading to Scylla because that way only six men will die.
  • Bye Scylla and Charybdis! Never see you again!
  • Noooo, come back here!
  • " Then Scylla made her strike, whisking six of my best men" (page 1075, line 809-814). Scylla grabs six of Odysseus' best men from the ship. Their legs and arms are dangling high overhead, yelling for Odysseus to help them.
  • Odysseus help , help!
  • "She ate them as they shrieked there, in her den,in dire grapple,reaching still for me- and deathly pity ran me through at the sight-far the worst I suffered,questing the passes of the strange sea." (Page 1076, Line 821-825).
  • Odysseus and the remaining men were finally able to leave Scylla and Charybdis. (Page 1076, line 826-827), "We rowed on. The Rocks were now behind: Charybdis, too, and Scylla dropped astern".
