Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus and his men come across a  cave by the beach.  The men want to steal the food and livestock then leave, but Odysseus wishes to stay and see the cyclops.  Polyphemus returns to his cave to discover strangers eating his food by a fire.
  • Polyphemus grabs two of Odysseus's men. "Aahhhhhhh!" screamed the men. Polyphemus then proceded to eat them, for he had not eaten in a very long time.
  • The intruders kindly offer Polyphemus a gift of wine. He gratefully accepts and begins to quench his thirst.  The more he drank the more tired he became, and soon he fell asleep.
  • Odysseus and his crew hide behind a boulder and plot against the innocently sleeping  Polyphemus. One crew member says "We will stab his eye and blind him with this large stick while he peacefully sleeps."
  • They carry out their plot and stab Polyphemus in the eye.They then made their escape on the bellies of his sheep.
  • The intruders boarded their ship and left him to suffer. They started to sail away on the ship when Polyphemus prays to Poseidon for revenge. He then begins to throw large boulders at the ship but misses and they sail away on the sea.
