Storyboard Text

  • "STAY AWAY FROM THE BLOOD"
  • *ELPENOR SPEAKS*
  • That's my mother...
  • "Let me taste this blood"
  • So we conversed, and grimly, at a distance, with my long sword between, guarding the blood, while the faint image of the lad spoke on.
  • !!!!!MOOOOO!!
  • Now came the soul of Anticlea, dead, my mother, daughter of Autolycus, dead now through living still when I took ship for holy Troy. Seeing this ghost I grieved, but held her off, through pang on pang of tears, till I should know the presence of Tiresias.
  • "WE KILLED HIS LIVE STOCK
  • Soon from the dark that prince from Thebes came forward bearing a golden staff; and he addressed me: "Son of Laertes and the gods of old, Odysseus, master of landways and seaways, why you leave the blazing sun, O man of woe, to see the cold dead and joyless region? Stand clear, put up your sword; let me taste of blood, and I shall speak true."
  • YOU SHALL DIE!
  • When you make landfall on Thrinacia first and quit the violet sea, dark on the land youll find the graziing herds of Helios by whom all things are seen, all speech is known. Avoid those kine, hold fast to your intent and hard seafaring brings you to Ithica. But if you raid the beeves, I see destruction for ship and crew.
  • Though you survive alone bereft of all companions, lost for years under strange sail shall you come home, to find your own house filled with trouble: insolent men eating your livestock as they court your lady.
  • Aye, you shall make those men tone in blood! But after you have dealt out death--in open combat or by stealth--to all the suitors, go overland by foot, and take an oar, until one day you have come where men have lived with meat unsalted, never known the sea, nor seen seagoing ships, with crimson bows and oars that fledge light hulls for dipping flight.
