Storyboard Text

  • Penelope sets a challenge for the many suitors that wish to marry her. Odysseus returned home as this was happening, and end up winning the challenge.
  • "Now flashed arrow from twanging bow clean as a whistle through every socket ring, grazed not one, to thud with heavy brazen head beyond. "
  • The suitors ask Odysseus to spare them, that he's already killed their ringleader, but Odysseus refuses.
  • "Father, let me bring you shield and spear, a pair of spears, a helmet. I can arm on the run myself; I'll give outfits to Eumaeus and this cowherd. Better to have equipment."
  • Odysseus and Telemachus, with help from a cowherd and swineherd, fight off the occupiers of Odysseus' home.
  • Penelope tests Odysseus with the secret that their bed can't be moved to make sure it's really him. Odysseus says: "I lopped off the silvery leaves and branches into a bedpost."
