Storyboard Text

  • After departing from the land of the Lotus-eaters, Odysseus and his crew came next to the Cyclopians the goggle-eyes a violent and lawless tribe.
  • "As soon as dawn gleamed through the mist we roamed and admired the island. Then the kindly daughters of Zeus, the Nymphs sent down goats from the hils to give us all a good meal"
  • The land was not far from where they cast off and when they reached it they saw a cave on the headland close by the sea, high and shaded with laurels, in which numbers of animals were housed at night.
  • They walked briskly into the cave but found him not at home so they entered the cave, and took a good look around, then they lit a fire and made their "thank-offering".
  • The great Cyclops Polyphemus returned carrying a tremendous load of dry wood to give light for supper. As he threw this wood upon the floor it created a great crash that terrified Odysseus and his crew causing them to scurry towards the corners of the cave.
  • After Odysseus gave Polyphemus but three drinks of his wine so delicious it was comparable to nectar and ambrosia he was fast asleep. Odysseus then lit his spear on fire and jabbed it into the great Cyclop`s eye.
