Storyboard Text

  • "Odysseus and his crew landed...and spent days feasting on wine and wild goats and observing the mainland, where the Cyclopes lived. On the third day, Odysseus and his company of men set out to learn if the Cyclopes were friend or foes." (Summary 98)
  • "Neither reply nor pity came from him,/but in one stride he clutched at my companions/and caught two in his hands like squirming puppies/to beat their brains out, spattering the floor./Then he dismembered them and made his meal" (136-140) 
  • "Even as he spoke, he reeled and tumbled backward,/his great head lolling to one side: and sleep/took him like any creature. Drunk, hiccuping,/he dribbled streams of liquor and bits of men." (223-226)
  • "Forward they sprinted, lifted it, and rammed it/deep in his crater eye" (236-237)
  • "Blinded, and sick with pain from his head wound,/the master stroked each ram, then let it pass,/but my men riding on the pectoral fleece/the giant's blind hands blundering never found." (296-299)
  • "Now he laid hands upon a bigger stone/and wheeled around, titanic for the cast,/to let it fly in the black-prowled vessel's track./But it fell short, just after the steering oar,/and whelming seas rose giant above the stone/to bear us onward toward the island." (399-404)
