The Greek myth runs that Narcissus, a fair Arcadian youth, admired his own beauty too much to return the love the nymphs bore him. Catching sight of his face in a forest fountain as he stooped to drink, he sat entranced, gazing until he perished. The gods, moved by the tears of the forlorn nymphs, turned him into the flower which bears his name. [P. 11.]
