Storyboard Text

  • “As we rowed on, and nearer to the mainland, at one end of the bay, we saw a  cavern yawning above the water. . .”  
  • I see land!
  • “I brought along, and victuals in a bag, for in my bones I knew some towering brute would be upon us soon-all outward power, a wild man, ignorant of civility.”
  • I have a bad feeling about this
  • No no, just keep it there.
  • “. . . so we looked round at everything inside: cheeses, pens, crowded with lambs and kids. . . ‘Why not take these cheeses, get them stowed, come back, throw open all the pens, and make a run for it?”
  • We should take it all captain!
  • “ When he came her had a load of dry boughs on his shoulder to stoke his fire at suppertime. He dumped it with a great crash into the hollow cave, and we all scattered fast to the far wall. . . He left his rams and he-goats in the yard outside, and swung high overhead a slab of solid rock to close the cave.”
  • “ Neither reply nor pity came from him, but in one stride he clutched at my companions and caught two in his hands like squirming puppies to beat their brains out, spattering the floor.”
  • “Now I chopped out a six foot section of this pole and set it down before my men, who scraped it; and when they had it smooth, I hewed it again to make a stake with pointed end. I held this in the fire’s heart and turned it, toughening it, then hid it . . . I drew it from the coals and my four fellows gave me a hand, lugging it near the Cyclops as more neutral force nerved them; straightforward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it deep in his crater eye,”
