Storyboard Text

  • "Sing to me of the man, Muse, the man of twists and turns driven time and again of course, once he had plundered the hallowed heights of Troy."
  • "Every god took pity, all except Poseidon. . ."
  • Up on Mount Olympus, all of the Gods but Poseidon had gathered for an assembly. . .
  • "Now, how on earth could I forget Odysseus? No, it's the Earth-Shaker, Poseidon, unappeased, forever fuming against him.
  • "My heart breaks for Odysseus.... have you no care for him in your lofty heart?"
  • "If now it really pleases the blissful gods, Odysseus journeys home---the exile must return! While I myself go down to Ithaca, rouse his son to a braver pitch, inspire his heart with courage.
  • After eating, Telemachus explains his father's long absence to his guest.
  • "But now, no use, he's died a wretched death. No comfort's left for us. . . . the day of his return will never dawn."
  • "Wait, I'll make you a prophecy, one the immortal gods have planted in my mind---He won't be gone long from the native land he loves. He's plotting a way to journey home at last."
  • Then Penelope, Odysseus's wife, entered and told the bard to stop singing about the war. But Telemachus's showed a newfound assertion.
  • Why, mother, why deny our devoted bard the chance to entertain us? Go back to your quarters.
  • "Break off this song---the unendurable grief, it wounds me most of all!"
  • That night, Telemachus weighed in his mind the course that Athena charted.
  • "I urge you, think how to drive these suiters from your halls. At daybreak summon the island's lords to full assembly."
