The Tale of Narcissus and Echo

The Tale of Narcissus and Echo

The Greek myth of Echo, a wood nymph, and Narcissus, a hunter known for his great beauty, explains the phenomena of echoes and Narcissus flowers, as well as teaches valuable lessons about gratitude and pride. Blinded by his own arrogance, Narcissus rejects Echo’s love and falls for his own reflection instead. Nemesis, the goddess of revenge, sympathizes with Echo and dooms Narcissus to be unable to move away from his own reflection once he gazes upon it in the river.
