Narcissus  

‘I am burning with love for myself. I move and bear the flames.’ The Metamorphoses, Book III: 437-473

According to a Greek myth the nymph Echo fell deeply in love with a beautiful young man named Narkissos. When he rejected Echo’s advances, the goddes of love Aphrodite punished the youth by making him fall in love with his own reflection. Narkissos gazed longingly at his image reflected in the water, but his love was not to be returned. He died heartbroken and where he laid his head, a yellow flower grew. In his narrative poem the Metamorphosis, the Roman poet Ovid transformed the young man into the delicate flower Narcissus.
