Storyboard Text

  • "Son of Laertes and seed of Zeus, resourceful Odysseus, let no need guide for your ship trouble you; only set up your mast pole and spread the white sails upon it, and sit still, and let the blast of the North Wind carry you."
  • "Circe, who will be our guide on that journey? No one has ever yet in a black ship gone all the way to Hades."
  • "I shall speak to Teiresias the Theban before you draw nearer to this blood"
  • "Now draw back from the pit, and hold your sharp sword away from me, so that I can drink of the blood and speak the truth to you."
  • Odysseus is thanking Circe for her help in telling him how to make his Journey to Hades, and for her inconspicuously tying the woman and the ram to the ship as a sacrifice to Erebos
  • Odysseus is telling the dead souls that they are not to draw nearer to the blood of the dead sheeps until he can speak to Teiresias
  • Teiresias's dead soul appears to Odysseus and tells him all about how Poseidon will make it hard for him to come home. He tells Odysseus that if he keeps his mind focused on going home he will make it but his friend will be destroyed, and in his house their will be men eating his food and trying to court his wife. After he kills him, he must go on a journey and plant his oar and other sacrifices to Poseidon and make his way home again. Teiresias lastly says that his death will come from the sea, in an unwarlike way at a sleek old age, and his people will be prosperous.
