Storyboard Text

  • "At this I went aboard, and gave the word/ to cast off by stern." (20-25) This is telling you how he went in his crossing ship to find out who the mainland natives were, also know as Cyclopes.
  • "swung/ high overhead a slab of solid rock/ to close the cave" (89) This is telling us how Cyclops closed the cave not knowing people were inside of it.
  • "but in one stride he clutched at my companions/ and caught two in his hands squirming puppies/ to beat their brains out, spattering the floor." (135-140) This is when he got one of his men and ate them.
  • "Even as he spoke, he reeled and tumbled backward,/ his great head lolling to one side: and sleep/ took him like any creature." (225) This shows how Odysseus and his men blinded the Cyclops after giving him wine to drink.
  • "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." (280-285) When Odysseus straps his men under three sheep so when they open the door the sheep can go out, but the men are still on them.
  • "But it fell short, just aft the steering oar,/ and whelming seas rose giant above the stone/ to bear us toward the Island." (400-405) Odysseus and his men sail away after the adventure in seeing the Cyclops.
