Storyboard Text

  • "As Book 5 begins, Zeus sends the god Hermes to tell Calypso to release Odysseus."
  • Calypso The Sweet Nymph
  • "Hermes explains that he has brought with an order from Zeus that Calypso must not detain Odysseus any longer but send him on his way home."
  • Calypso sees that Odysseus is clearly upset and explains to him the information she received from Zeus. 
  • "O forlorn man, be still. Here you need grieve no more; you need not feel your life consumed here; I have pondered it, and shall help you go..."
  • Calypso is upset because she thinks that Odysseus wants to leave Penelope, his wife, is more pleasurable than herself.
  • "Can I be less desirable than she is? Less interesting? Less beautiful? Can mortals compare with goddesses in grace and form?"
  • Odysseus explains to Calypso that his wife does not even compare to her, but he still longs for the one he loves and his home land. 
  • "My goddess, here is no cause for anger. My quite Penelope-how well I know-would seem a shade before your majesty death and old age being unknown to you, while she must die. Yet it true, each day I long for a sign of home."
  • "With Calypso's help, Odysseus build a raft and sets out to sea."
