The Odyssey Book 13 Storyboard

Storyboard Text

  • "Royal son of Laertes, Odysseus, old campaigner, think how to lay your hands on all those brazen suitors, lording it over your house now, three whole years, courting your noble wife, offering gifts to win her."
  • "God help me!"
  • "Come, weave us a scheme so I can pay them back! Stand beside me, Athena,"
  • "Surely I’ll stand beside you, not forget you, not when the day arrives for us to do our work. Those men who court your wife and waste your goods? I have a feeling some will splatter your ample floors with all their blood and brains."
  • "Up now, quickly. First I will transform you—no one must know you. I will shrivel the supple skin on your lithe limbs, strip the russet curls from your head and deck you out in rags you’d hate to see some other mortal wear; I’ll dim the fire in your eyes, so shining once—until you seem appalling to all those suitors, even your wife and son you left behind at home."
  • "But you, you make your way to the swineherd first, in charge of your pigs, and true to you as always, loyal friend to your son, to Penelope, ... wait there, sit with him, ask him all he knows."
  • "I'm off to Sparta, ... to call Telemachus home, your own dear son, Odysseus."
  • "All plans made, they went their separate ways" (line 502-503, pg. 300)
  • Scene and quotes from The Odyssey by Homer, Book 13 pages 298-300.
