Echo and Narcissus

The introduction of Echo
Echo, the god of wood, was a beautiful nymph 仙女, fond of woods and hills, where she devoted herself to woodland sports. She was a favorite of Diana. Echo had one failing; she was fond of talking, and whether in chat or argument, would have the last word.

There was a story about it
One day Hera was seeking her husband, who, she had reason to fear, was amusing himself among the nymphs. Echo by her talk contrived to detain the goddess till the nymphs made their escape. When Hera discovered it, she passed sentence upon Echo in these words, “you shall forfeit(丧失)the use of that tongue with which you have cheated me, except for that one purpose you are so fond of reply. You shall have the last word, but no power to speak first.”

The introduction of Narcissus
Narcissus was the son of 河神刻菲索斯 (Cephisus)与仙女莱里奥普(the blue Nymph Liriope)
He was very handsome

What he described himself is
The well-turn’d neck and shoulders he descries, The spacious forehead, and the sparkling eyes; The hands that Bacchus (巴克科斯是 罗马神话中的酒神和植物神,相 当于希腊神话中的狄俄倪索 斯)might not scorn to show, And hair that round Apollo’s head might flow; With all the purple youthfulness of face, That gently blushes in the wat’ry glass.

Their ending
Echo went to hide her blushes in the recesses of the woods. From that time forth she lived in caves and among mountain cliffs. Her form faded with grief, till at last all her flesh shrank away. Her bones were changed into rocks and there was nothing left of her but her voice.

Revenged by the avenging goddess, Narcissus fell in love with himself. At last he died and became a flower.

The story between them

The story between them

There was another version about Echo

希腊神话中,Echo,是一个美丽,善良,聪明绝顶的女 神。众神心中的情人,而这位可爱的女神,却只钟情于 Narcissus,英俊潇洒,风度翩翩,以至于必须用漂亮才能 形容他那张脸。众女神心中的王子。 而Narcissus从来不理会任何女神的追求,包括可爱 Echo。因为他每天只做一件事,就是坐在水边,看着自 己的倒影。知道么?Narcissus是个自恋狂,世界上他不会 爱任何人,无论Echo或者其他女神怎样爱他。Narcissus 爱的人只有他自己,只是他自己。 可是Echo的美貌还是被宙斯这个淫魔发现,并疯狂追 求,无论可怜的Echo怎样拒绝。而宙斯的发妻赫拉,是 个对丈夫无能为力却心胸狭窄,阴险毒辣的女人。对 Echo,她是憎恨妒忌的;对宙斯,她是爱恨交加却恐惧 的。终于她对Echo施了一种残忍的法术。。。

Echo,从此再也不能主动的说话了,她只能重复别人所 说的话,再也无法表达自己了。一天,Echo带着无法遏 止的爱,紧紧地跟在Narcissus的身后
