Storyboard Text

  • Your clothes are all soiled, wash them. You must dress well, as the best young men are eager to marry you. Go have your father hitch a mule-cart to carry the clothes to the laundry pools (Homer, 6.25 - 6.40).
  • They wash the laundry, and then lay it out flat to dry. While it drys they play with a ball (Homer, 6.85 - 6.100).
  • Odysseus wakes up and grabs a branch to cover himself to greet the natives of the land. He asks himself if he should throw himself on her knees, and if he should ask her to show him the way to the city and for them to give him clothes (Homer, 6.134 - 6.144).
  • AHHHHHH!!!
  • AHHHHHH!!!
  • Are you a goddess or a human? for you are beautiful beyond words. I have found my way to these strange lands, and my suffering has been great. I implore that you show me the way to town and give me clothing (Homer, 6.149 - 6.189).
  • You seem a good man, I will give you what you ask. This is the land of the Phaeacians and I am the princess, daughter of the king Alcinous. Girls how dare you run, feed and bathe this man. Stranger wash and I will bring you to my father (Homer, 6.191 - 6.216).
  • We will go to the city, and you will run alongside my cart. The townspeople will mock me, but understand them to win my father over so he may send you home. Close by there is a grove of Athena; wait there until we reach the house. Then, enter the house quickly, and throw yourself on my father's knees (Homer, 6.262 - 6.328).
