Storyboard Text

  • Welcome to our therapy session, Telemachus. I have heard that you have had some daddy issues. (Modernization of quote from page 2)
  • Based on: Athene went dashing down the ridges of Olympus and in the land of Ithaca stook at Odysseus' gate ... By far the first to see Athene was princely Telemachus. (Book 1)
  • So, I heard that you are allegedly the son of the famous Odysseus, who was known for just disappearing. Now tell me, are you really his son? (Modernization of quote from page 3)
  • To tell you the truth, my mom has told me that Odysseus is my dad, but I have never seen him as a father. If he has died, I would not be able to feel that much grief, since I do not know much about him. (Modernization of quote from page 3)
  • In this scene, Athene is approaching Telemachus, which fuels Telemachus's awareness of his father. The outcome of this conversation will result in Telemachus making an effort to find out more about Odysseus.
  • In this scene, Athene brings up the topic of Odysseus. Although shaken, Odysseus later admits that he does not know much about Odysseus, since he was never present during his life.
  • Analysis: This scene is important to the overall plot because this was the beginning of Telemachus's individual call to action. This eventually led to Telemachus attempting to know more about where his father is. The significant event that happens to the characters here is that both Athene and Telemachus realize Telemachus's lack of knowledge yet longing for Odysseus. We learn that Telemachus does not know much about Odysseus.
