Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus made a bad decision in taking his army to Ismara because he wound up losing many valuable people in his army. If he had just taken his people back home after their victory, he wouldn't have lost all those men.
  • "Soon after leaving Troy, Odysseus and his crew land near Ismarus, the city of the Cicones."
  • Ismara: The Cicones
  • Odysseus' decision to take his men away from the Island of the Lotus Eaters was a good one, since the men were becoming addicted to the Lotus flowers and stopped caring about going home.
  • "Upon the tenth we came to the coastline of the Lotus Eaters, who live upon that flower. We landed there to take on water."
  • Lotus Eater Island
  • Odysseus' decision to go to the Cyclops' cave and invite him and his army in was a bad one, since he jeopardized his lives and the lives of his men. After eating the Cyclops' food, he got angry, and ate some of his men, showing he would not hesitate to kill them.
  • “In the next land we found were Cyclopes, giants, louts, without a law to bless them. "
  • Cyclops Part I
  • When Odysseus decided to give the Cyclops wine and tell him a false name, he made a good decision because it was then easier for them to trick the Cyclops and escape the cave.
  • “He seized and drained the bowl, and it went down so fiery and smooth he called for more” “My name is Nohbdy…”
  • Cyclops Part 2
  • They made a good decision when Odysseus and his men speared the Cyclops in the eye. This wounded them, although no one was alerted thanks to the pseudonym Odysseus gave him.
  • “...as more than natural force nerved them; straight forward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it deep in his crater eye.”
  • Cyclops Part 3
  • After stabbing the Cyclops, Odysseus made a good decision by cleverly leading his men out the opened cave door and taking them away from the dangerous Cyclops.
  • 'O Cyclops! Would you feast on my companions? Puny, am I, in a Caveman's hands? How do you like the beating that we gave you, you damned cannibal? Eater of guests under your roof! Zeus and the gods have paid you!'
  • The theme of book nine is "don't let your pride overcome you."
  • Cyclops Part 4
