Project for Latin 2, to storyboard the myth of Echo and Narcissus.
The story begins with Echo, a talkative mountain nymph. She was punished by the Goddess Juno for helping the other nymphs and Juno's husband, Jupiter, hide from her.
For revenge, Juno cursed Echo to never speak again unless she's spoken to first.
Despite her curse, Echo and many of other nymphs fell in love with a handsome man by the name of Narcissus. He spurned anyone who confessed, and claimed to be able to love no one but himself.
Echo followed Narcissus through the woods. After weeks of watching him, she was able to echo back enough words to him to confess her feelings. As he always did, Narcissus cruelly turned her down.
Destroyed by Narcissus's harsh rejection, she hid herself in a cave. For years Echo stayed there, wasting away from her own heartbreak.
Eventually Echo's body turned to bone and dust. She became a spirit forced to echo back whatever she heard.
