Storyboard Text

  • Odysseus prepares his men for the Sirens by putting wax in their ears so that they cannot hear the Sirens.
  • Odysseus instructs his crew to tie him up so that he can hear the song of the sirens but not go towards them.
  • "the two Sirens, noting our fast ship off their point, made ready, and they sang."
  • "and I tried to say 'Untie me!' to the crew, jerking my brows; but they bent steady to their oars."
  • Perimedes and Eurylochus tie more rope around Odysseus to hold him still. The boat continues onward.
  • "My faithful company ... peeling off the wax that I had laid thick on their ears; then set me free."
