Storyboard Text

  • "As we rowed on, and nearer to the mainland, at one end of the bay, we saw a cavern...(Homer 374)".
  • High Five!
  • Odysseus and his men find a cyclops cave.  He wanted to go inside and see if the cyclops living there was nice.
  • "My ship? Poseidon Lord, who sets the earth a-tremble, broke it up on the rocks at your land's end (Homer 377)".
  • The Cyclops did not seem nice at first. He asked Odysseus why his ship was outside, but Odysseus lied so the cyclops wouldn't find it.
  • "Then he dismembered them and made his meal, gaping and crunching like a mountain lion-everything: innards, flesh, and marrow bones (Homer 378)".
  • The cyclops didn't care about his story and ate two of Odysseus men. Little did he know that Odysseus had a plan.
  • "Cyclops, try some wine. Here's Liquor to wash down your scraps of men (Homer 379)."
  • Odysseus gives the cyclops strong liquor so he will get drunk and fall asleep.
  • "Even as he spoke, he reeled and tumbled backward, his great head lolling to one side: and sleep took him like any creature (Homer 380)."  
  • Right after Odysseus handed the cyclops the liquor, he became drunk and passed out. While he was asleep, they stabbed him with a hot spike in his eye socket.
  • "So with our brand we bored that geat eye socket while blood ran out around the red hot bar. (Homer 380)".
  • Since the cyclops is blind now, he was trying to feel around to grab any of Odysseus men before they escape. It was to late because they hid under his sheep and left the cave.
