Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus and his men have sail to Sicily, where the cyclops Polyphemus lives.
  • Odysseus and his men find sheep and cheese, and feast on it, assuming the cyclops follows the Greek Custom of hospitality.
  • As Odysseus feasts on the cheese, the Cyclops Polyphemus stumbles upon them, confused and angry as to why he is here. Odysseus offers Polyphemus wine, and then he falls asleep.
  • "In the next land we found were Cyclopes, giants, louts, without a law to bless them (Book IX 56-57)."
  • As Polyphemus sleeps, the men sharpen a wood plank, and stab him in the eye.
  • "But Cyclops had gone afield, to pasture his fat sheep, so we looked round at everything inside: a drying rack that sagged with cheeses, pens crowded with lambs and kids... (Book IX 116-120)."
  • After, the men hide under Polyphemus' sheep while Odysseus hides under the woolliest ram, and wait til next morning to escape.
  • "'Cyclops, try some wine. Here's liquor to wash down your scraps of men.'" (Book IX 256-257)
  • They finally escape, but Odysseus later yelled to Polyphemus about who he really is.
  • "Straight forward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it deep in his crater eye..." (Book IX 290-293)
  • "So three sheep could convey each man. I took the woolliest ram..." "So, breathing hard, we waited until next morning."  (Book IX 341-342 and 346)
  • "'Cyclops, if ever mortal man inquire how you were put to shame and blinded, tell him Odysseus, raider of cities, took your eye: Laertes' son, whose home's on Ithaca!'" (Book IX 416-419)
