Storyboard Text

  • Exposition: "'Old shipmates, friends, the rest of you stand by; I'll make the crossing in my own ship, with my own company, and find out what the mainland natives are-for they may be wild savages, and lawless, or hospitable and god fearing men.'"(15-20)
  • Inciting Moment: "A prodigious man slept in this cave alone, and took his flocks to gaze afield-remote from all companions, knowing nothing but savage ways, a brute so huge, he seemed no man at all of those who eat good wheaten bread; but he seemed rather a shaggy mountain reared in solitude."(30-37)
  • Rising Action: "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."(136-139)
  • Climax: "In a smithy one sees a white-hot axehead or an adze plunged and wrung in a cold tub, screeching steam-the way they make soft iron hale and hard-: just so eyeball hissed around the spike. The Cyclops bellowed and the rock roared round him, and we fell back in fear."(244-250)
  • Falling Action: "Close by, I dropped and rolled clear of the ram's belly, going this way and that untie the men."(320-321)
  • Resolution: "When the young Dawn with finger tips of rose touched the world, I roused the men, gave orders to man the ships, cast off the mooring lines; and filing in to sit behind the rowlocks oarsmen in line dipped oars in the gray sea. So we moved out, sad in the vast offing, having our precious lives, but not our friends."(423-429)
