Storyboard Text

  • "Across the bay from the land of the Cyclopes is a lush, deserted island"(pg. 374).
  • My shipmates, a few of our best fighters and I will go check out if the natives are friendly or not!
  • EXPOSITION
  • "I wished to see the caveman, what he had to offer no pretty sight, it turned out, for my friends. We lit a fire, burnt an offering, and took some cheese to eat; then sat in silence around the embers waiting"(130-135).
  • NO
  • Let's take his stuff and make a run for it!!!!!!!
  • INCITING MOMENT
  • "He left his rams and he-goats in the yard outside, and swung high overhead a slab of solid rock to close the cave"(141-144).
  • RISING ACTION

  • RESOLUTION
  • "When the young dawn of fingertips of rose touched the world, I roused the men, gave orders to man the ships, cast off the mooring lines; and filing in to sit beside the rowlocks oarsmen in line dipped oars in the gray sea. So we moved out, sad in the vast offing, having our precious lives, but not our friends"(478-484).
