Storyboard Text

  • After fleeing from the Lotus Eaters, Odysseus and his men continued their voyage to the land of the Cyclopes. Here they discovered the one-eyed giant's cave and ventured there in search of food and supplies.
  • Why not rob the Cyclops and make a run for it?
  • Despite the men's pleads to steal and leave, Odysseus's curiousity forces them to stay and see what the Cyclops has to offer.
  • No. I wish to see the caveman and what he has to offer.
  • Soon after the Cyclops returns in rage, blocking the entrance with a boulder. Unconvinced by Odysseus's idea of hospitality he eats two of his men, then falls asleep.
  • The next morning Polythemus tends his flocks for the day, while Odysseus hatches a plan. When the Cyclops returns, Odysseus cunningly offers him wine and tells him that his name is "Nohbdy."
  • "Cyclops, try some wine."
  • Intoxicated, Polyphemus passes out, shortly awakened by the blinding stab of Odysseus's sharpened stick. The Cyclops calls the others, but Odysseus's wily trick deceives them all.
  • "Nohbdy, Nohbdy's tricked me, Nohbdy's ruined me!"
  • Odysseus and his men make their final move. Cleverly, they hide under the flock and reach freedom at last. The men sail away, journeying to the next obstacle separating them from their homeland, Ithica.
  • "Sweet cousin ram, why lag behind the rest in the night cave?"
