Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • I am the finest weaver to ever exist. No one, not even the Goddess Athena herself could compare to the things I have woven.
  • Rising Action
  • How dare a mere mortal declare herself superior to me!
  • Rising Action
  • Humble yourself before the gods and you will be forgiven.
  • If Athena really thinks she is a better weaver, than let her come and compete against me!
  • Arachne was a maiden who became famous throughout Greece. She was small and pale from working.
  • Climax
  • Arachne was small and pale from much working. At last Arachne’s fame became so great that people used to come from far and wide to watch her working.
  • Falling Action
  • graceful nymphs would steal in from stream or forest and peep shyly through, watching in wonder the white arms of Arachne as she stood at the loom and threw the shuttle from hand to hand between the hanging threads, or drew out the long wool, fine as a hair, from the distaff as she sat spinning.
  • Resolution
  • Nor if I had, would I give Athene credit because the girl was more skillful than I. As for Athene’s weaving, how could there be finer cloth or more beautiful embroidery than mine? If Athene herself were to come down and compete with me, she could do no better .
  • They were terribly afraid as they realized that they stood in the presence of Athena. Arachne herself flushed red for a moment, for she had never really believed that the goddess would hear her.
  • Impossible! I am the better weaver! I am a Goddess! You are nothing compared to me!
  • Arachne stood there a moment, struggling with anger, fear, and pride. "I will not live under this insult," she cried, and seizing a rope from the wall, she made a noose and would have hanged herself.
  • Live, but with nothing more than the skill of your weaving.
