Odyssey: Land of the Dead
This storyboard does not have a description.
Seeing his mother's ghost, Odysseus grieves but held her off from the pit since it was meant for Tiresias.
"Son of Laretes and the gods of ol,Odysseus,master of land-ways and the seaways' why leave the blazing sun, O man of woe' to see the cold dead and the joyless region?
Stand clear; let me taste the blood and I shall speak true
"Now came the soul of Anticlea,dead, my mother, daughter of Autolycus, dead now, though living still when I took ship for holy Troy. Seeing this ghost I grieved, but held her off" Lines: 614-618
Great Captain when you make landfall on Thrinacia you'll find the grazing herds of Helios, avoid those kine and hold fast to your intent.
"Soon from the dark that prince of Thebes came forward bearing a golden staff and he addressed me." Lines: 620-621
If you kill Helios' cattle you will reach home without your crew and under strange sail to find men courting your wife and eating your cattle
"At this I stepped aside, and in this scabbard let my sword ring home to the pommel silver, as he bent down to the somber blood. Then spoke the prince of those with gift of speech." Lines: 628-631
Once you reach your home you will continue further on foot until you reach a strange land where you have never been, implant a smooth oar in the turf and make sacrifice to lord poseidon and all the god.
When you make landfall on Thrinacia first and quit the violet sea, dark on the land you'll find the grazing herds of Helios by whom all things are seen, all speech is known. Avoid those kine, hold fast to your intent, and hard seafaring brings you all to Ithaca. But if you raid the beeves, i see the destruction for ship and crew.
Though you survive alone, bereft of all companions, lost for years, under strange sail, shall you come home, to find your own house filled with trouble; insolent men eating your livestock as they court your lady. Aye, you shall make those men atone in blood!
Go overland on foot, and take an oar, until one day you come where men lived with meat unsalted, never known the sea, nor seen sea going ships with crimson bows. Halt and implant a smooth oar in the turf and make fair sacrifice to Lord Poseidon a ram a bull a great buck boar, turn back, and carry out pure hetahombs at home to all wide heavens lords and gods undying.
