Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus and his men arrive at a strange cave...
  • My men were for making off with the cheeses and the lambs that we found in the cave, but I wanted to see what manner of being made this his lair.
  • 'If someone asks who did this, the name is Odysseus!' ... The Cyclops was left howling on the cliff, calling out to his father Poseidon for vengeance.
  • The cyclops, instead of being kind to his guests, begins to devour them one by one.
  • Heating the end of the pole until it was glowing red, we ran it toward the Cyclops like a battering ram, aiming it for his eye and driving it deep.
  • Odysseus and his men escape the now blinded cyclops by clinging to the underbellies of his sheep, so that when he let them out to pasture the men would be free.
