Finding similar myths to Echo and Narcissus in other cultures is tricky. If we look at the story as a myth about self-obsession there are very few similar stories. If we look at it as a myth about tragic love there about five million similar stories. What we need is a middle ground. As much as we wish that we had read every myth out there, we haven't. (We've read lots, but there's so many!) Still, we've scoured the earth and managed to bring you at least one example of similar mythology.
