Storyboard Text

  • One day, Penelope announced she needed a commander of her home- for her husband was long gone. So she decided to have a contest- if the man bend and string the bow then sends an arrow through iron axe-helve sockets may have her bridal and home.
  • One by one, the suitors tried to string the bow, however fail. Only Antonius delays his attempt. Odysseus then asks to try his hand at stringing the bow.
  • Antinous sneers at the idea, but Penelope and Telemachus insist. Odysseus took his time- the suitors were now watching him.
  • A bow lover! Dealers in old bows! Maybe he has on like it at home! Or has an itch to make one for himself!
  • Odysseus in one motion strung the bow-the suitors faces all changed. He struck a arrow and it made the target.
  • The prince Telemachus, true son of King Odysseus, belted his sword on, clapped hand to his spear, and with a clink and glitter of keen bronze stood by his chair, in forefront near his father.
