Oddyseus and his men have arrived at a cyclops' cave and things go down when he arrives

Storyboard Text

  • Milk!
  • Sheep!
  • Cheese!
  • "The cyclops pay no deed to aegis bearing Zeus, nor to blessed gods; because we are much stronger then themselves. To shun the Rath of Zeus I would not spare you or your comrades..."
  • Odysseus and his men sail through to the land of the cyclops where they capture wild goats and then crossed the mainland. They immidiently came upon a cave full of sheep, milk and cheese. Some of the men wanted to snach some of the food and hurry off but odysseus had other plans.
  • "Give me some more, kind sir, and straightway tell me your name".
  • "My name is noman. Noman I am called by mother, father.."
  • Oddyseus and his men went ahead and ate the cheese while they waited for the cyclops who owns this cave to return. When Polyphemus came back the men freaked out but the cyclops didn't notice them at first because he was too busy getting his sheep in the right place. When he finally noticed them he didn't greet them so nicely
  • AHHHHH "Friends, Noman is murdering me by craft."!!!
  • The cyclops explains that he doesn't follow zeus' rules and goes ahead to brutally kill two of oysseus' men and eat them. Odysseus, surprised by this starts to plan how to kill Polyphemus but then realizes that they need him to move the rock that is blacking their only exit. He plans to trick him instead.
  • "Cyclops, if ever mortal man asks you the story of the ugly blinding of your eye, say odysseus made you blind, the soldier of cities, Laertes' son, whose home is Ithaca.
  • The next morning the cyclops ate two men for breakfast, took out his flock for their daily routine, and then ate two more men for supper. As part of his plan, odysseus offered him some stong wine after his supper in order to get him sleepy. Since they were being nice to eachother now, Polyphemus asked odysseus his name and promised him to eat him last . Odesseus told him his name was " noman."
  • Once Polyphemus dozed off the men got and heated a pointy weapon they had hidden while he was outside. Odysseus stabbed Polyphemus in the eye causing him to go blind. Polyphemus called out for his friends and told them what "noman" had done; They just assumed he had gone crazy (or got cursed by zeus). He fell asleep soon after that and the men carried out the rest of the plan. Odyssus tied each of the men under a sheep then himself last.
  • Once they got outside they untied themselves from the animals and climbed aboard their ship which was conveniently awaiting their arrival. Things were going great until odysseus decided to tell the cyclops all of his personal information (like his name), even though his men were highly advising him against it. Polyphemus then gave this information to his father Poseidon who is later going to use it to make odyssius' life impossible.
  • "Oh reckless man...."
