Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus was coming back from the Trojan war when he landed on the island of cyclopses and found himself at the mercy of a Cyclops named Polyphemus.  After being trapped by Polyphemus he decided to snack on his crew and ate someone.
  • Odysseus Was able to delay his death by tricking Polyphemus into drinking undiluted wine.  After Polyphemus drank the wine he fell asleep on the floor giving time for Odysseus to heat his blade with fire and blind him by stabbing him in the eye.
  • After Polyphemus was stabbed in the eye he woke and started destroying anything he could reach in rage and fury.  In order to escape the Cyclops, they climbed under Polyphemus's sheep to get out of the cave because it was blocked the cave exit.
  • When the other cyclopes heard the noise they asked who had blinded Polyphemus.  Before Polyphemus drank the wine he had asked: "What is your name".  Odysseus said his name was nobody so Polyphemus said nobody blinded him causing the Cyclopes to think it was a tragic accident so the other cyclopses went back to there caves.
  • Odysseus was able to make it back to his ship and get onto his boat but... Odysseus decided to taunt the cyclopes helping Polyphemus pinpoint their location and send a huge rock right into the middle of their ship causing it to sink killing more than half Odysseus's crew.
  • Polyphemus thinking he killed Odysseus stopped throwing rocks. However, Odysseus managed to escape with 3 of his crew members back to his home but he would still be an outcast at his home. THE END
