Shakespeare's vision of Narcissus and Echo has come to end, and we see that he's been looking at his reflection this whole time. The last thing he sees are the closing verses of Golding's translation... a tear falls into the water and disturbs his reflection, and on the following page we'll see how that morphs into the first sonnet.

An enormous thank you to my patrons for your continued support! And Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating!

One cannot read Shakespeare’s Sonnets coherently without understanding the framing story, which is based on Arthur Golding’s translation of the story of Narcissus and Echo from Ovid’s Metamorphoses.

The final instalment of the tale of Narcissus and Echo, with Narcissus overwhelmed by grief and frustration until his collapse and metamorphosis into the Narcissus flower (daffodil). Now that the background for understanding the sonnets has been provided, the next page will transition us into the sonnets themselves - this is an important milestone, and I cannot express how excited I am that we've reached it!

An enormous thank you to my patrons for your continued support!

The quotes in captions are a selection that demonstrate the direct link between the tale of Narcissus and Echo and Shakespeare's sonnets; they are copied from my modernized translation of Golding's text.
