In Greek literature Narcissus was known for his beauty. He was attracted to the pool where he saw his own mirror image in the water and fell in love with it. Unable to leave the beauty of his reflection, he stared at it until he died. What did Narcissus really fall in love with? His beauty or his identity? The story suggests he did not live with a mirror. Perhaps his love grew from the knowledge of his own identity. He had effectively found himself.
