The Bewitching Queen of Aeaea
This storyboard does not have a description.
I'm so tired!
One of Odysseus's men was climbing up to Circe's roof on a ladder because he was really tired. Little did he know, he was going to die!
While he was snoozing, he was having some dreams. He didn't acknowledge that he would want to wake up and fall down the ladder.
When Odysseus's crew member woke up, he was struggling to get down. He was stumbling around and around on the roof top and then something terrible happened.
When the crew member was struggling to get down, he missed the ladder to exit. In the text it states, "I slept on Circe's roof, then could not see the long steep backward ladder, coming down, and fell that height." This means that when he didn't spot the ladder, he fell off onto the ground.
Once the man fell, he hit he ground face first and snapped his neck. This unfortunately killed him. In the text it cites, "My neck bone, buckled under, snapped, and my spirit found this well of dark." This quote means that when the crew man fell, the collision was so impacted that he died when he snapped his neck.
Once the man was dead, no one noticed. So his corpse laid there unburied and his soul sank into the under world. In the book it says, "O my lord, remember me, I pray, do not abandon me unwept, unburied, to tempt the god's wrath, while you sail home; but fire my corpse, and all the gear I had, and build a cairn for me above the breakers..." The statement just mentioned explains how he was saying his final words that he wants to be buried.
