Storyboard Text

  • So Odysseus went off into the Underworld to meet with Teiresias. 
  • Odysseus obeys the wishes of Teiresias, and begins to learn about his journey. 
  • Odysseus, man of many schemes, why have you come to view the dead and this dark, joyless place? Withdraw your sword and move aside so that I can drink the dark blood and speak with you. 
  • Surely the gods have spun the words you spoke to me. Now advise me. How do I get the shade of my mother to speak with me? 
  • Your companions will die, you will be alone, and you must slay the suitors in your home when you arrive. After they are slain, you must send their shades to the kingdom of Hades. 
  •                                              Your wife has been faithful, and your son has kept your kingdom whole. Your father has gone into the countryside, where he lives like a peasant. As for me, my heart overflowed with sadness  over your absence. 
  • How did you  die? How are my father and my son, Telemachus? And tell me about my wife. Has Penelope waited with a faithful heart for my return, or has she married another
  • Be careful, Odysseus, for my wife, seemingly loyal and loving, was the one who murdered me. Be cautious when you arrive home, for even the most loyal woman may turn against you. 
  •  With these words, Odysseus's heart was left saddened. As the conversation concluded, Odysseus spotted Achilles. 
  • I have heard nothing of your father, but I was the one who brought Neoptolemus to Troy to join the Greeks. He was a great Greek warrior. Last I saw of him, he was on board of his ship, in good health, and well-honored with his share of Trojan treasure. 
  • What can you tell me about my father and my son? Is Peleus still honored in his old age? Did Neoptolemus become a leader in the war against the Trojans?
