Storyboard Text

  • Alkinoos sacrifices an ox to Zeus, and the Phaiakians and Odysseus feast on it before their departure. 
  • Odysseus's and the Phaiakian's journey back to Ithaca can most closely be represented by "The Ultimate Book" on a Hero's journey because Odysseus is finally completing his quest in getting home. 
  • Alkinoos, Arete and other Phaiakians gave many gifts to Odysseus and wished him goodluck in Ithaca. 
  • Odysseus slept on the boat on the way to Ithaca. The Phaiakians dropped him and his belongings off, and left while he was still asleep. 
  • Poseidon, angered by Odysseus' easy trip home, decides to sink the Phaiakians' ship, and hide their city under a mountain. Zeus convinces him not to hide the city under a mountain, but allows him to turn the ship to stone.
  • This time, I wish to stun that beautiful vessel of the Phaiakians out on the misty sea as it comes back from its journey, so that they may stop, and give over conveying people. (Pg 202)
  • Odysseus awakes, and is met by Athene, disguised as a young herdsman. She explains he is in Ithaka and Odysseus lies about his story. 
  • I have fled, an exile, because I killed the son of Idomenus, Orsiochos...who in wide Crete surpassed all mortal men..." (Pg 205)
  • Athene reveals herself as a goddess and turns Odysseus into a beggar. She explains her absences to Odysseus and left to find Telemachos. 
  • Odysseus must overcome his pride in looking and acting like one of the Gods and become a beggar so he will not be noticed by citizens.
