Storyboard Text

  • After escaping from the island of Lotus - Eaters, Odysseus finds the land of Cyclopes. Cyclopes are one - eyed giant sons of Poseidon, god of sea.  
  • We shall land there.
  • After landing near a Cyclops' cave filled with rams and goats, Odysseus takes some of his men along with victuals to go inside the cave to meet the Cyclops.
  • "Let's take some cheese to eat and wait."
  • The Cyclops, known as Polyphemus, later returns to his cave to find unwanted strangers. He devours two of Odysseus' men in anger.
  • "You are a ninny, or else you come from the other end of nowhere... We Cyclopes care not a whistle for your thundering Zeus."
  • "It was our luck to come here; here we stand, beholden for your help..."
  • Planning wisely, Odysseus decides to strike Polyphemus after impairing him by giving him wine.
  • "Cyclops, try some wine." "My name is Nohbdy"
  • "Give me another. Thank you kindly. Tell me, how are you called?
  • While Polyphemus is sleeping, Odysseus makes a giant spear out of a olive branch and stabs his eye. Odysseus and his crew then hides under Polyphemus' sheep to escape.
  • "Zeus and the gods have paid you!"
  • "Nohbdy, Nohbdy's tricked me, Nohbdy's ruined me!"
  • Odysseus safely gets in his ship and sails away while giving away his real name and taunting Polyphemus. Polyphemus then asks Poseidon to curse Odysseus on his journey.
  • "Grant that Odysseus, raider of cities, never see his home!"
  • "Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye!"
