Storyboard Text

  • I arrived at the hut of Eumaeus, where I noticed a beggar eating breakfast.  I knocked on the door.
  • The beggar changes appearance to pure white with a knit tunic.  I had noticed and said that the beggar must be "one of the gods" (1024).
  • The beggar reveals himself as Odysseus, "I am the father whom your boyhood lacked and suffered pain for lack of.  I am he" (1024).  I could not hide my surprise.
  • Odysseus said, "I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies" (1025).  I said, "I have been waiting for that day for years, but I could not do it alone."
  • We planned to overthrow the suitors.  Odysseus said, "Athena, counseling me, will give me word, and I shall signal to you, nodding: at that point round up all armor, lances, gear of war left in our hall, and stow the lot away back in the vaulted storeroom" (1027).
  • "If son of mine, you are and blood of mine, let no one hear Odysseus is about" (1027).  He returned to his beggar appearance and we shared a brief embrace before I departed.
