Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus enters The Land of the Dead
  • After spending many seasons with the witch, Circe, she informs Odysseus that he must go to The Land of the Dead alone. He continues telling his story there...
  • Odysseus observes his surroundings
  • Odysseus becomes weary of his surroundings, especially of the "tender girls whose hearts were were knew to grief".
  • 'I (am growing) sick with fear'
  • Teiresias warns Odysseus
  • Odysseus seeks Teiresias, the well known, and blind profit, to inform him about his destiny.
  • 'Great captain, a fair wind and the honey lights of home are all you seek. But anguish lies ahead...'
  • Teiresias informs Odysseus to go to Helios' island
  • Teiresias tells Odysseus that he must stay away from "The Sun God's" cows in order to avoid destruction.
  • "Avoid those kine, hold fast to your intent, and hard seafaring brings you to Ithaca. But if you raid the beeves, I see destruction for ship and crew"
  • Teiresias also tells Odysseus to make a sacrifice to Poseidon once he returns home
  • 'Halt, and implant your smooth oar in the turf and make a fair sacrifice to Lord Poseidon: a ram, a bull, a great buck boar.
  • The last prediction Teiresias makes is that Odysseus will have 'a seaborne death soft as this hand of mist will come upon you when you are wearied out with rich old age...'
  • The End
