Skylla

Character Analysis

Skylla (or Scylla) is a monster that Odysseus must pass with his men. Odysseus has been instructed not to try to fight the monster, but rather to row by as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it takes a good amount of spewing and crunching for him to remember this.

For more on this creature, check out Shmoop's guide to Scylla.
