Narcissus, a character from Greek mythology, was a beautiful youth who spurned the affections of a nymph. In punishment, Aphrodite, the goddess of love, made him fall in love with his own reflection in a pool of water. He wasted away from unsatisfied desire and was transformed into the flower that now bears his name.
