Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus and his men travel to see the cyclopes.
  • The men go and see if the cyclopes were friends or foes.
  • Terrified, Odysseus and his men learn that the cyclopes will not let them leave so the only way to get away, would be to spear him in the eye. 
  • When the young dawn with fingertips of rose came in the east, I called my men together and made a speech to them." (Pg: 98)
  • Odysseus decides to tie him and his men to the cyclopses sheep so they can escape.
  • "Old shipmates, friends, the rest of you stand by; I'll make the crossing in my own ship, with my own company, and find out what the mainland natives are-for they may be wild savages, and lawless, or hospitable and god fearing men." (Pg: 98)
  • Odysseus and his men finally escape out of the cave and get untie themselves from the sheep.
  • "I drew it from the coals and my four fellows gave me a hand, lugging it near the Cyclopes as more than natural force nerved them; straight forward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it deep int his crater eye./The cyclopes bellowed and the rock roared around him, and we fell back in fear." (Pg: 106 and 107)
  • The men nearly escape on their boat because of the angry cyclopes.
  • "Three abreast I tied them silently together twining cords of willow from the ogre's bed then slung a man under each middle one to ride there safely, shielded left and right. So three sheep could convey each man. I took the wooliest ram, the choicest of the flock, and hung myself under his kinky belly, pulled up tight, with fingers twisted deep in sheepskin ringlets for an iron grip." (Pg: 107)
  • "Close by, I drooped and rolled clear of the ram's belly going this way and that to untie the men." (Pg: 108)
  • "The blind thing in his doubled fury broke a hilltop in his hands and heaved it after us. Ahead of our black prow it struck and sank whelmed in a spuming greyser, a giant wave that washed the ship stern foremost back to shore." (Pg: 109)
