Echo and Narcissus 1143 Views


Share It!


Description:

Today we aren't looking for the most virtuous person, or most likeable, but rather the most disturbing. Will it be Echo, the nymph who is doomed to only repeat the words of others, and can create none herself; or is it Narcissus himself, the attractive man who has but one love in his life—his own face—and completely ignores Echo? They both meet their timely end, but who do you think is worse?
