Storyboard Text

  • Iros is mad at Odysseus for being in his begging spot
  • "Give way, old sir, from the forecourt, before your are taken and dragged out"
  • Odysseus boxes Iros
  • Athene gives Penelope confidence
  • Iros is mad at Odysseus because he thinks Odysseus is going to take the spot where he is begging
  • The suitors give Penelope Gifts
  • Firstly "Iros hit him in the right shoulder, but Odysseus struck the neck underneath the ear, and shattered the bones within, and the red blood came in his mouth, filling it"   This is saying that Odysseus had to overcome the obstacle of Iros trying to fight him
  • Odysseus tells Eurymachos to leave
  • ""If Odysseus were to come back to the land of his fathers, the gates of the house, although they are very wide, would suddenly be too narrow as you took flight to escape from the forecourt"
  • While Penelope was sleeping Athene changed some aspects of her since Odysseus has been gone so long it has been wearing on her.  So Athene "made her taller for the eye to behold, and thicker, and she made her whiter than sawn ivory".
  • Odysseus and Telemachos threaten Suitors
  • "Such men themselves bring in their own cattle and fat sheep, to feast the family of the bride, and offer glorious presents".  This is showing that the suitors are bringing in their own sheep and cattle to feast on and giving presents all to Penelope.
  • Odysseus is in disguise talking to Eurymachos about himself (Odysseeus) coming home
  • Odysseus and Telemachos threatens the suitors to leave there home but the suitors don't "If Odysseus were to come back to the land of his fathers, the gates of the house, although they are very wide, would suddenly be too narrow as you took flight to escape from the forecourt".  This shows they are working together overcoming the obstacles from suitors.
