Storyboard Text

  • Back Again
  • "No god, why take me for a god? No, no. I am the father whom your boyhood lacked and suffered pain for lack of. I am he."
  • The Suitors
  • "A pity that you have more looks than heart. You'd grudge a pinch of salt from your own larder to your own handyman. You sit here, fat on others' meat, and cannot bring yourself to rummage out a crust of bread for me!"
  • Penelope
  • "You see, then he is alive and well, and headed homeward now, no more to be abroad far from his island, his dear wife and son. Here is my sworn word for it. Witness this god of the zenith, noblest of the gods, and Lord Odysseus' hearthfire, now before me: I swear these things shall turn out as I say. Between present dark and one day's ebb, after the wane, before the crescent moon, Odysseus will come.
  • Odysseus is accepting responsibility for missing out on his child's life. Knowing he caused his son great pain. However, his son doesn't believe that Odysseus is his father.
  • Challenge
  • Telemachus, the stranger you welcomed in your hall has not disgraced you. I did not miss, neither did I take all day stringing the bow. My hand and eye are sound, not so contemptible as the young men say. The hour has come to cook their lordship' mutton----supper by daylight. Other amusements later, with a song and harping that adorn a fest.
  • On this quote the author present some characters imperfections, using the example of Antonius and how he treats and abused Odysseus who is disguised as a beggar. Other suitors show some sympathy for the beggar by giving him food, however, Antonius didn't display any sympathy.
  • Revenge
  • “You forced yourselves upon this house. Fight your way out, or run for it, if you think you‘ll escape death. I doubt one man of skins by”
  • Odysseus, although disguised as a beggar is determined to arrive home to his wife and son even with the suitors as an obstacle. He is giving her hope although she believes Odysseus is dead he doesn't want her to lose hope.
  • Penelope's Test
  • "...Make up his bed for him, Eurycleia. Place it outside the bedchamber my lord built with his own hands. Pile the big bed with fleeces, rugs, and sheets of purest linen."
  • In this quote Odysseus shows hidden detail that unlike the other men, they think he is an old beggar that cannot hear nor shoot, he is the real Odysseus and he tries to reveal this to his son.
  • Odysseus is angered that his own people betrayed him knowing he was alive trying to sell his wife to another marriage and invade his home. He does not feel sympathy nor loyalty for his people and therefore battles them and becomes a victor.
  • Penelope tests Odysseus to see if he is an impostor. She tells the nurse to take the bed from her bed chambers and relocate it in another room. In which he responds that its impossible the bed is immovable. No one knows that except Odysseus himself and his wife. This proves to Penelope this is the true Odysseus.
