This storyboard represents the book; Stranger at the Gates.
Telemachus decided to return home after his long journey.
I am secretly Odysseus
He told his swineherd to bring this stranger to town.
Stranger at the Gates
“I’m off to town, old friend, to present myself to mother."
"Sweet light of my eyes! I never thought I’d see you again,once you shipped to Pylos—against my will, so secret,out for news of your dear father."
Telemachus told Penelope the entire story of his trip. How he saw Nestor and Menelaus. He told her that Odysseus was last heard of trapped on an island.
The "stranger" joined the feast and was raked with insults because no one could've imagined that he was the king. Antinous even threw a stool at him. Telemachus was very upset.
I am a King
"Disgusting beggar who licks the feasters’ plates."
Penelope asked to see the "stranger". She was curious about him.
"I’d like to give him a warm welcome, ask the man if he’s heard some news about my gallant husband or seen him in the flesh."
Odysseus refused to see her now, but said she could ask him questions later.
“Old friend—our queen, wise Penelope, summons you,the prince’s mother!"
"Tell Penelope now,anxious as she may be, to wait in the halls until the sun goes down."
"He tells you to wait here till the sun goes down.It’s better for you, my queen. Then you can talk with the man in private, hear the stranger’s news.”
“Didn’t you bring him?"
