Echo and Narcissus

This picture represents the myth of Echo and Narcissus. The way Narcissus is looking at his reflection in the river shows how he’s admiring himself and how he is too in love with himself. However, his position shows that he is weak of thirst and hunger. On the other side, Echo’s face expression indicates that she has fallen in love with Narcissus but didn’t know how to approach. Her head is faced towards him but her body is resisting it, shown by her hand grabbing to a branch of the tree. The position of how Echo is hiding behind a tree shows how shy and timid she feels after her voice was taken away from her.

History of Reverb and Echo in Audio Production Recording

. History of Reverb and Echo in Audio Production Recording Natural occurring reverb goes further back than man on earth. Since before man, creatures and nature made sounds that created natural reverb and echo. But now in today’s age with men and the modern technology that they have created there are all sorts of ways to create reverb and echo. From big metal sheets to plug-ins in a DAW on a computer, engineers have found ways to incorporate and benefit from reverb and echo on a recorded audio track. But before skipping into today’s ways of recording reverb and echo let’s shed some light on what reverb and echo truly is and where it came from. Reverberation or as most people refer to it as reverb, refers to the way sound waves reflects of the surfaces around the sound source before it reaches the listeners ear. Reverb is basically a series of multiple fast echoes merged together so fast that the human ear cannot separate the sound into a delayed distinct duplicate sound. When hearing exact duplicates of the sound is when it becomes echo. In the early days of radio, they would send the radio signal through a line miles and miles away and bring it back. An easy way to hear reverb is to enter an empty room and clap. Immediately after the clap the person would hear the decaying sound of the clap; that is reverb. Recording reverb in the early days was as simple as just backing up a microphone from your sound source to reach the right amount of reverb you were looking for. There.

Narcissus Essay Outline

. The Metamorphosis of Narcissus: Essay Outline 1. Introduction Thesis: In his painting, the Metamorphosis of Narcissus, artist Salvador Dali uses metaphor, juxtaposition, and symbolism to reveal the reason behind, contrast between, and implements of Narcissus’s transformation from life to death. 2. Body Paragraph #1 Metaphor a. Example: The group of dancing women embodies the idea of contentment. Significance: Despite the fact that the women are most likely the rejected lovers of Narcissus, they are dancing with joy because they have each other. The loss of Narcissus’s beauty has little effect on their overall happiness, since companionship is more valuable than beauty. b. Example: Narcissus’s loneliness is comparable to the remaining chess piece. Significance: Narcissus’s divine, greatly sought after beauty, ironically, has made him dissatisfied with life. As a result of his self-love and selective attitude towards possible suitors, he has ostracized himself from all others, which causes him extreme emotional pain. c. Example: The hidden statue is a metaphor to Narcissus’s inevitable fate. Significance: Just as the statue is difficult to see behind the mountain tops, Narcissus is unable to see his destiny, which is to die. Although it is difficult to detect, the constant presence of his pre-determined future is undeniable. 3. Body Paragraph #2 Juxtaposition d. Example: The figure of the living man contrasts sharply with the.

H >. Echo and Narcissus Introduction This is an old story about a Greek myth. The story is told in the III Book of the Metamorphoses. It was then retold by Roger Lancelyn Green (1918-1987) an English novelist. The characters in this story are mainly Greek mythology characters such as: Zeus, Hera, Aphrodite, Echo, Narcissus, a nymph and another god. Exposition In a mountain in Greece lived the Ureades, nymphs or fairies. There was this beautiful nymph, which was one of the most talkative called Echo. She loved to talk and made Hera, wife of Zeus, king of the gods, jealous and angry, because Zeus was spending too much time with Echo instead of her. Rising Action One day Zeus gets bored and tired of the golden halls in Mount Olympus, so he decided to come down to Earth and wander with the nymphs in the mountains. Hera, however, started getting jealous, so she often came to spy on Zeus. It seemed strange to Hera at first that Echo didn’t stop talking. Then she realized that Echo was doing it on purpose to detain her while Zeus sneaked quietly to Mountain Olympus without her noticing. Climax Hera gets really angry so she throws a spell to Echo where she could only repeat what others said. She couldn’t speak unless someone else spoke first. Hera, left poor little Echo, sweeping sadly among the rocks of the mountain sides speaking only the words that her family and friends said to each other. Falling action There was this beautiful youth called.

Analysis of an Echo Sonnet: “to an Empty Page”

. In Robert Pack’s, «To an Empty Page,» the speaker discusses death and its consequences regarding relief to show the author’s purpose as a feeling of loneliness and depression. He does this with the use of an echo sonnet form, foreshadowing within the title, and through the use of emotion evoking pathos. Pack’s use of a sonnet for reveals his feelings and emotions toward love, which sonnets are normally about. Readers can feel the raw emotion that Pack reveals in his discussion regarding the speakers possible death and loss of love, thereafter. In addition, the fact that he wrote an echo sonnet aids in the author’s purpose because it allows the reader to be aware of the words meant to be emphasized. Along with its emphasis, the echo, in some cases, seems to answer a rhetorical question made by the speaker. For example, “what’s the end of my life’s long disease? Ease,” (line 7). Within this quote, the speaker is relaying his belief that the only way to relieve himself of life’s burdens is through death. Pack exposes his true feelings of loneliness, which in sonnet form allows readers to sense his passion. The title, «To an Empty Page,» Pack eludes that his poem is dark and filled with sadness. A breakdown of the title shows that Pack’s diction with using, «To,» was as if the speaker was sending his sonnet to somebody; as if he were talking to an imaginary listener. But contrast to that idea, he is sending his sonnet to, «an Empty Page,» meaning nobody. These words have a.

Echo Field Trip

. ECHO FIELD TRIP On this wonderful tour, I learned a large amount of sustainable agricultural approaches. Crop rotation was one of them. It’s where the farmer grows different crops in the same field, in succession. Apparently, there are repercussions to planting the same crop over and over. This avoids those challenges. One challenge in particular is reducing the pest issue that most farmers face. These pests usually explode in population due to the continual availability of their food source. These pests tend to prefer one certain crop and by changing it yearly, the pest population stays down. These farmers also tend to plant crops that replenish the nutrients in the soil. Crops like soybeans and legumes reduce the need for the farmers to use fertilizer because it keeps the soil healthy. Farmers also use a method called “cover crops.” This method involves always having something growing in the soil. This prevents the soil from eroding, the weeds from growing, and it improves the quality of the soil. You will also see a large amount of farmers introduce “pest predators” onto their fields. Insects, birds, and spiders eat a lot of the pests that terrorize the crops of these farmers. These are just a few of the sustainable methods farmers use to keep their farms afloat. The biggest problem farmers’ face is the fact that there is an overgrowth of these pests. These pests are evolving and some pesticides are failing to work at this point. This forces farmers to introduce.

. Salvador Dali had an improbable outlook on artistic creations and an amazing ability to create magnificent portraits. He began painting while in school, and much of his work was admired by his fellow students and teachers. It would be in 1931 when Dali would create one of his most memorable pieces of work to date –the Persistence of Memory. Dali, also created arts such as Metamorphosis of Narcissus in 1937 and The Elephants in 1948. The Metamorphosis of Narcissus retells the story of the tragic fate of Narcissus and Echo. Elephants on the other hand were specially selected animals which Dali used to contrast the difference between weight and structure, with the elephants carrying huge weight on their backs on top of brittle legs which were vastly elongated in order to substantially distort reality and strengthen the symbolism in his painting. Although Dali was a great artist, it was his unusual way of thinking and deep concern for dreams that gained him the most notoriety. Salvador Dali was born in 1904 in Figueres, Spain. In 1921, his mother passed away, and drew Dali closer to the arts. At first influenced by futurism, in 1924 Dalí came under the influence of the Italian painter de Chirico while in art school in Spain and by 1929 he had become a leader of Surrealism. His precisely realistic style enhances the obsessively nightmarish effect of many of his paintings. Among his best-known works is Persistence of Memory with its strangely melting clocks. In 1940 Dalí.

. The Bukidnon plateau is home to seven of the 18 different indigenous groups found in Mindanao. After doing some research, although it was fairly short I’ve learned a lot about the Lumad people (the Visayan word collectively used for all indigenous people in Mindanao). We spent most of the week with a Manobo community high in the mountains of San Fernando municipality. The Manobo people are just one of the 18 Lumad groups found in Mindanao; however, they have a number of subgroups with slight language differences and practices. The different Manobo tribes are semi-autonomous from the Philippine government and have their own laws, practices and judgements given by tribal chieftains (Datus). To explore on the food preparation and cooking skills of Manobo people most families in this community depend on root crops and what is caught in the forest for their food. However, food can sometimes be scarce so often times dried fish and rice has to be bought in the barangay market (5km down the mountain). Inside this research are instances of their cooking practices, on how they prepare on their food. The upland Manobo practise swidden or slash-burn farming whereas those inhabiting the valleys practise wet-rice farming. Rice culture is so central to the Manobo way of life that there are more than 60 different names for rice varieties, and all agricultural rituals center around it. In the late 190s, however many Manobo groups shifted to corn culture because of the gradual disappearance.

. superior to all. They also are revenge-seeking and will go into an uncontrollable rage against anyone who does not treat them as a superior or criticizes them. These types appear to be flawless and have an inflated sense of self esteem. This type of behavior may have stemmed from parents or guardians who treated them as a superior in early childhood. This would mean that they are not compensating for anything . They are simply acting out their expectations of life. The term ‘narcissism’ originated from the Roman poet Ovid’s Metamorphoses (Book III) in the first century story of Narcissus and Echo, and much later evolved into a highly specialized psychoanalytic term. In Ovid’s myth, Narcissus is a handsome young man who spurns the advances of many potential lovers, including the nymph Echo, named this way because she was cursed to only echo the sounds that others made. After Narcissus rejects Echo, the gods punish him by making him fall in love with his own reflection in a pool. Finding that the object of his love cannot love him back, he pines away and dies(insert citation here). The notion of narcissism is obviously years old but it just got recognized as a personality disorder about fifty years ago. Sigmund Freud wrote a paper called On Narcissism: An Introduction in 1914. This publishing gave valuable insight on what narcissism is and who effects the human psyche. Freud proposed that narcissism is a normal part of the human psyche. He described it as the energy that.

Narcissus

Definition

Narcissus is a figure from Greek mythology who was so impossibly handsome that he fall in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Even the lovely nymph Echo could not manage to tempt him from his self-absorption. Narcissus’ name lives on as the flower into which he was transformed and as a synonym for those obsessed with their own appearance.

Narcissus & His Reflection

Narcissus was born in Thespiae in Boeotia, the son of Cephissus (the personification of the Boeotian river of the same name) and the nymph Liriope. His mother was warned one day by the seer Teiresias that her son would live a long life as long as ‘he never knows himself.’ As he reached his teenage years, the handsome youth never found anyone that could pull his heartstrings, indeed, he left in his wake a long trail of distressed and broken-hearted maidens, and one or two young men fell by the wayside too. Then, one day, he chanced to see his own reflection in a pool of water and, thus, discovered the ultimate in unrequited love and fell in love with himself. Naturally, this one-way relationship went nowhere, and Narcissus, unable to draw himself away from the pool, pined away in despair until he finally died of thirst and starvation. Immortality, at least of a kind, was assured, though, when his corpse (or in some versions the blood from his self-inflicted stab wound) turned into the flowers which, thereafter, bore his name.

Narcissus & Echo

Another version of the myth appears in the work of the Roman writer Ovid. In this telling, Narcissus is as handsome as ever but cruelly refuses the advances of Echo. The lovely nymph, heartbroken, wastes away and dies with only her voice remaining to echo her plight. As a punishment for his neglect, Narcissus is then killed. Another version has Echo punished by Hera because she kept the goddess distracted with stories while the lovers of her husband Zeus, the mountain nymphs, escaped Mt. Olympus without notice. This explains why Echo could only repeat what others said to her. It is Echo in this form that Narcissus comes across one day while hunting deer in the forest. After a useless exchange of repeated words and statements, Echo tries to embrace the youth, but he rejects her and dashes off back home. Echo then pines away in the forest so that her body eventually perishes and only her voice remains.

Ameinius & Artemis

Other stories which diverge from the original myth have Narcissus, like with the Echo story, play the role of a mean rejector of suitors. One of the youth’s most ardent admirers was Ameinius, but Narcissus merely sent him a sword to do away with himself, which he did. On dying, Ameinius cursed the object of his unbound affections and asked the gods to punish him. Artemis responds to the request — perhaps showing a dislike for rival hunters – and compels Narcissus to tragically fall in love with his reflection.

Narcissus in Art & Culture

Unlike for Greek artists, the Roman version of Narcissus and Echo was a very popular subject in Roman art and is seen in almost 50 wall paintings at Pompeii alone. Renaissance art also took a shine to Narcissus; the story involving light and reflection proved irresistible to Caravaggio, who captured the myth in his celebrated 16th-century CE oil painting. Finally, his name lives on today in psychoanalysis where narcissism refers to the personality disorder of excessive self-admiration and preoccupation with one’s appearance.

echo and narcissus? please helppp!?

i read the greek myth about echo and narcissus (probably spelled wrong) but i don’t really understand it. can you help?

i have some questions:

what curse does aphrodite place on narcissus?

how does narcissus die and rebirth?

what is a major flaw of narcissus?

thanks so muchh..

6 Answers

1. The god was not aphrodite. It was Nemesis, goddess of revenge. She made him fall in love with himself while he was looking into a pond.

2.Narcissus dies of tiredness and starvation, and reborn as flower(of course, Narcissus)

3. He thought no woman was good enough for him.

1. Aphrodite makes Narcissus not able to love anyone but himself, and so he falls in love with his reflection (himself) and dies of grief because his love is not returned.

2. Narcissus dies of starvation and fatigue because he wont leave the pond (in love with his reflection) and his rebirth is this: dirt covers his corpse and he is reborn into a fragrant flower.

3. the major flaw in Narcissus is that he thinks no woman is good enough for him

(Aphrodite is a goddess of love not some god of revenge, just so ya know ;)

this is almost exactly like an assignment i just had, except we had more questions. anyway, i got 100% on it so i just copied those answers to here.

—May Luck Follow You And Echo In Your Footsteps—

-Fire of the Dragon Heart

Aphrodite cursed Narcissus because of his offensiveness in the face of romantic love, she cursed Narcissus to fall in love with something that would never return his love.

Narcissus plunged a dagger in his heart and died, calling out a last goodbye to his reflected image. Where his blood soaked the earth sprung up the white narcissus flower with its red corollary.

As a handsome youth he left a trail of broken hearts from rejected lovers of both sexes. Narcissus wanted nothing to do with falling in love from anyone and rebuffed all attempts at romance.

As Kami said, it’s a story of unrequited love. It’s more of a motif than a moral. The moral of the story is whatever you make of it. The only thing I’ve been able to come up with that’s even vaguely close to being a ‘moral’ is this: When you fall too far within yourself, you lose the chance of knowing others who might give you the love and attention you need. Rather than focus so much on yourself, start focusing on the world around you. People reflect what you show them.

that he will fall in love with himself

he wastes away looking at his own reflection and then is reborn as a flower

Our story begins with Echo and Zeus. That ever-cheatin’ God was at it again, this time with the young nymph Echo. Now, at that time (just in case you may have picked up on the significance of her name) Echo was a nymph like any other and a very talkative one at that. They were making out or making love or whatever, believing that all was well. But Hera was NOT a happy camper. She had followed Zeus, expecting JUST that kind of behavior out of him. She came down to Earth to apprehend her «too-much-love-for-one-woman» husband, but Zeus, being godly, sensed her coming. He instructed Echo to keep Hera busy until he could get away.

Echo did just that. Hera confronted her with the affair, but Echo created a long and very untrue story for Hera, giving her lover enough time to escape. Now, Rhea (Hera’s mom) didn’t raise no fool. She knew she had been tricked, and by a nymph at that! She turned on Echo and declared:

В школе этого не расскажут:  Спряжение глагола sarcler во французском языке.

«That tongue of yours, by which I have been tricked, shall have its power curtailed and enjoy the briefest use of speech.»

Ovid, Metamorphoses 3.365

From that moment on the talkative Echo could barely use her voice, and could only repeat the words that those around her said. She was lonely, and couldn’t really talk to other nymphs because of her condition, and secluded herself deep in the woods.

One day, a very handsome young man came along. His name, surprise surprise, was Narcissus. Echo fell in love with him at once. Echo wanted to call out, «Wait! I love you!» But her voice was frozen in her throat by Hera’s curse. The young man went deeper and deeper into the forest, until he came upon a calm stream. He was thirsty and so he bent over to drink, but as he leaned over he caught sight of his reflection in the water. He was as taken by his beauty as Echo had been, but without her barrier. He immediatly spoke to his reflection, «I love you.» Echo, nearby and hearing her chance quickly responded, «love you . . .» But it was too late, Narcissus was too engrossed with himself to notice the nymph. His love was his obsession and would not leave the stream to eat, nor disturb his image to drink and so he died of thirst and hunger and unrequited self-love. Where he had lain a flower grew, the narcissus, the same flower that wooed the innocent Persephone. Poor Echo pined away and died for the same things, but when she died not even her bones remained, some say they were turned to stone. But Gaia preserved Echo’s voice, the one thing she had been denied in life, and to this day her voice sounds everywhere.

Another story of Echo excludes Narcissus altogether. In this version she was educated by Nymphs and taught music by the Muses. She fled from all men, and loved her virginity. Pan became angry with her and attacked her music because he couldn’t touch her beauty. He made the goatherds and shepherds insane and they ripped poor Echo apart and flung her pieces across the Earth. But Gaia buried them and preserved their beauty and the Muses decreed that they would forever sing out, imitating all things.

‘Sweet Echo, sweetest nymph, that liv’st unseen

Within thy airy shell

By slow Meander’s margent green,

And in the violet-embroidered vale

Where the lovelorn nightingale

Nightly to thee her sad song mourneth well:

Our story begins with Echo and Zeus. That ever-cheatin’ God was at it again, this time with the mountain nymphs of Kithairon, of whom Echo was one. Now, at that time (just in case you may have picked up on the significance of her name) Echo was a nymph like any other and a very talkative one at that. And while Zeus was dilly-dallying with Echo’s sisters, Hera was NOT a happy camper. She had followed Zeus, expecting JUST that kind of behavior out of him. She came down to Earth to apprehend her «too-much-love-for-one-woman» husband, but Zeus, being godly, sensed her coming. Echo bit the bullet and tried to keep Hera busy until he and the other nymphs could get away.

Now, Rhea (Hera’s mom) d >nymph at that! She turned on Echo and declared:

«That tongue of yours, by which I have been tricked, shall have its power curtailed and enjoy the briefest use of speech.»
Ovid, Metamorphoses 3.365

From that moment on the talkative Echo could barely use her voice, and could only repeat the words that those around her said. She was lonely, and couldn’t really talk to other nymphs because of her condition, and secluded herself deep in the woods.

One day, a very handsome young man came along. His name, surprise surprise, was Narcissus. Echo fell in love with him at once. Echo wanted to call out, «Wait! I love you!» But her voice was frozen in her throat by Hera’s curse. The young man went deeper and deeper into the forest, until he came upon a calm stream. He was thirsty and so he bent over to drink, but as he leaned over he caught sight of his reflection in the water. He was as taken by his beauty as Echo had been, but without her barrier. He immediatly spoke to his reflection, «I love you.» Echo, nearby and hearing her chance quickly responded, «love you . . .» But it was too late, Narcissus was too engrossed with himself to notice the nymph. His love was his obsession and would not leave the stream to eat, nor disturb his image to drink and so he died of thirst and hunger and unrequited self-love. Where he had lain a flower grew, the narcissus, the same flower that wooed the innocent Persephone. Poor Echo pined away and died for the same things, but when she died not even her bones remained, some say they were turned to stone. But Gaia preserved Echo’s voice, the one thing she had been denied in life, and to this day her voice sounds everywhere.

Another story of Echo excludes Narcissus altogether. In this version she was educated by Nymphs and taught music by the Muses. She fled from all men, and loved her virginity. Pan became angry with her and attacked her music because he couldn’t touch her beauty. He made the goatherds and shepherds insane and they ripped poor Echo apart and flung her pieces across the Earth. But Gaia buried them and preserved their beauty and the Muses decreed that they would forever sing out, imitating all things.

‘Sweet Echo, sweetest nymph, that liv’st unseen
Within thy airy shell
By slow Meander’s margent green,
And in the violet-embroidered vale
Where the lovelorn nightingale
Nightly to thee her sad song mourneth well:
Canst thou not tell me of a gentle pair
That likest thy Narcissus are?’
John Milton (1608-1674), ‘Comus’

Echo and Narcissus

This song takes its deeper inspiration from the tragic Greek myth surrounding the Nymphs ‘Echo’ and ‘Narcissus’.

In short, Echo was a nymph, cursed by Hera (Zeus’s wife) for distracting her with conversation and stories while Zeus had affairs behind Hera’s Back. Her curse was to stop Echo’s ability to speak freely, and only enable her to copy what others said. Narcissus was a vain hunter who treated women and their approaches with disdain and contempt dude to his vanity. Echo falls in love with him but can never tell him how she feels. After his rejection of her, Narcissus is finally cursed by Nemesis to fall in love with his own reflection. When he realises the desperation of his situation, he kills himself.

Echo was a mountain nymph, who loved the sound of her own voice. Zeus, married to Hera, was known for the many love affairs that he had behind Hera’s back. Echo sometimes would distract Hera with conversation and long stories while Zeus took advantage of the situation and ravished other mountain nymphs. Hera, having discovered the situation, cursed Echo by taking away her voice, her ability to speak was limited to copying what others said (hence the modern day term used to describe certain sounds ‘Echo’ ).

Narcissus was an exceptionally beautiful and vain youth, hunter and son of blue Nymph Liriope, known for his cold and harsh rejection of any girl who loved him. Echo fell hopelessly in love with Narcissus but could never tell him how she truly felt, because of the curse and her inability to speak freely. Nemesis cursed Narcissus to fall in love with his reflection which he came across one day in a pool of water. Narcissus, eventually realising that it was himself that he saw and fell in love with ended up beating his own life out of himself in desperation.

«One day when Narcissus was out hunting stags, Echo stealthily followed the handsome youth through the woods, longing to address him but unable to speak first. When Narcissus finally heard footsteps and shouted «Who’s there?», Echo answered «Who’s there?» And so it went, until finally Echo showed herself and rushed to embrace the lovely youth. He pulled away from the nymph and vainly told her to leave him alone. Narcissus left Echo heartbroken and she spent the rest of her life in lonely glens, pining away for the love she never knew, until only her voice remained.

Nemesis heard this prayer and sent Narcissus his punishment. He came across a deep pool in a forest, from which he took a drink. As he did, he saw his reflection for the first time in his life and fell in love with the beautiful boy he was looking at, not realizing it was himself. Eventually, after pining away for a while, he realized that the image he saw in the pool was a reflection of himself. Realizing that he could not act upon this love, he tore at his dress and beat at his body, his life force draining out of him. As he died, the bodyless Echo came upon him and felt sorrow and pity. His soul was sent to «the darkest hell» and the narcissus flower grew where he died. It is said that Narcissus still keeps gazing on his image in the waters of the river Styx . «

lyrics

When I see myself
Such a beautiful suffocation
What a heavenly stimulation
I’m drowning in the light
Blinded by the sight

Echos of a love
A meaningless exchange
Anyone I want
Falls into my arms
And death is not my curse
Maybe a new start
There isn’t enough space in one heart

And I question why
I’m never happy
The questioning subsides

When I see myself
Such a beautiful suffocation
What a heavenly stimulation
I’m drowning in the light
Blinded by the sight

Together and alone
Muted in my shame
The one who is my love
Lies blind forever
Hung on every word
With such a bitter taste
I yearn for him to hear the voice of my heart.

When I see myself
Such a beautiful suffocation
What a heavenly stimulation
I’m drowning in the light
Blinded by the sight
