MYTHOLOGY MEME | [1/6] MUSES & NYMPHS: ECHO
Echo was an Oread (a mountain nymph) who loved her own voice. Zeus loved consorting with beautiful nymphs and visited them on Earth often. Sometimes the young and beautiful nymph Echo would distract and amuse Zeus’ wife, Hera, with long and entertaining stories while Zeus took advantage of the moment to ravish the other mountain nymphs. When Hera discovered the trickery, she was cursed by the goddess with the voice of the echo, to only repeat the last words of what was said before, as a way of punishment. She was loved by the god Pan, and herself became enamoured of the boy Narcissus. Pan became so angry when she refused him he created such a panic causing a group of shepherds to kill her. Echo was torn to pieces and spread all over the Earth. The goddess of the earth, Gaia, received the pieces of Echo, whose voice remains repeating the last words of others.
