Narcissus is a figure from Greek mythology who was known for his beauty and pride. The story of Narcissus has been retold in various forms, but the basic details remain the same.

According to the myth, Narcissus was a young man who was renowned for his exceptional beauty. He was so enamored with his own appearance that he refused the love of many who sought him as a lover. One of these suitors was the nymph Echo, who was cursed by the goddess Hera to only be able to repeat the words of others.

One day, Narcissus happened upon a pool of water and was captivated by his own reflection. He was unable to look away and eventually fell into the water, drowning. In some versions of the story, he turned into a flower, the Narcissus plant, which is said to symbolize the beauty and fragility of life.

The story of Narcissus has been interpreted in various ways, with some seeing him as a symbol of the dangers of self-love and pride. Others have interpreted the story as a warning against excessive self-obsession or vanity.

Regardless of interpretation, the story of Narcissus has had a lasting impact on Western culture and continues to be retold and referenced in literature, art, and popular culture. The term "narcissism" is also derived from the myth of Narcissus, and is used to describe excessive self-love and self-obsession
