The Odyssey - Cyclops

The Odyssey - Cyclops

Storyboard Text

  • "A prodigious man slept in his cave alone, and took his flocks to graze afield - remote from all companions knowing none but savage ways, a brute so huge, he seemed no man at all of those who eat good wheaten bread: ..."
  • Odysseus, we have come upon this land of Cyclopes, and this is the only place of shelter we can find, what shall we do?
  • "I wished to see the cave man, what he had to offer - no pretty sight, it turned out, for my friends."
  • We will eat the cheese we found in this cave, and then we will watch the cyclops who lives here. I wish to learn more about him.
  • " ... but Cyclops went on filling up his belly with manflesh and great gulps of whey, then lay down like a mast among his sheep."
  • Us Cyclops do not care about the gods. I shall now eat some of your men for trespassing my property!
  • Who are you?
  • I am Nohbody, and these are my men. We just crashed our ship because of Poseidon. We were hoping to be provided with hospitality, since that is what the gods want you to do.
  • "'Cyclops, try some wine. Here's liquor to wash down your scraps of men. ... '"
  • What shall we do now? Let him eat us?
  • No, we are going to get him drunk, then once he is asleep we shall blind him by stabbing him in the eye. We shall then escape without a on the underbelly of his sheep. When he lets his ram out, he will move this stone and then we can ride the ram out without him seeing us.
  • AHH! MY EYE!!!
  • "Blinded, and sick with pain from his head wound, the master stroked each ram, then let it pass, but my men riding on the pectoral fleece the giant's blind hands blundering never found."
  • "'Cyclops, if ever mortal man inquire how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye: Laertes' son, whose home's on Ithaca!'"
  • Actually, it is Odysseus. Tell everybody that Odysseus is the one who blinded you!
  • You'll never get away with this! I will kill you one day, Nohbody!
