Storyboard Text

  • "A sound the men heard terrified them. Oars flew from their hands: the blades went knocking wild alongside till he ship lost way with no oar blades to drive her through the water. "
  • "Well, I walked up and down from bow to stern, trying to put heart into them, standing over every oarsmen. Get the oar shafts back in your hands: and lay back hard on your benches; hit these breaking waves."
  • "But I sent them towards Scylla and, I told them nothing, as they could do nothing. They would've dropped their oars again, in, panic, to roll for cover under the deck."
  • Odysseus and his men were getting closer to Scylla and Charybdis when all of a sudden the men lost control of the oars and the ship lost way and the men were scared out of their wits.
  • "When she vomited, all the sea was like a cauldron seething over intense fires, when the mixture suddenly heaves and rises. My men all blanched against the gloom, our eyes were fixed upon that yawning mouth in fear of being devoured."
  • Odysseus beings to try and assuage his men because he knows that they are afraid. Then he tells them to put the oar shafts back in their hands and start rowing again. He tells them to steer to the headline, avoid the smoke or else they will drown
  • "Then Scylla made her strike, whisking my six best men from the ship. I had glanced aft at ship and oarsmen and caught sight of their arms and legs dangling high overhead."
  • "A man surfascating on a point of rocks for bass or mackerel whipping his long rod throwing the bait out of their way so Scylla can eat it. She ate them as they shrieked there,in her den. We rowed on. The rocks were now behind; Charybdis, too, and Scylla dropped astern."
  • Odysseus and his men are approaching Scylla but his men doesn't know because Odysseus thinks that his men will stop rowing and take cover.
  • While they were rowing into the strait Scylla and Charybdis appeared. Charybdis gorged the salt sea tide. When she vomited it felt they were over a hot cauldron. She then swallowed the water and they saw the funnel of the maelstrom. His men were in shock when they saw Scyllas mouth and they were terrified of being devoured.
  • Scylla then attacked the best six men on the ship. Odysseus caught a glimpse of his men's legs and arms dangling high overhead. Odysseus then hears the voices of his men for the last time.
  • A man threw bass or mackerel as bait far away from the ship but in reach of Scylla. Scylla ate the bait but still yearned for his men as they rowed leaving Scylla and Charybdis behind.
