The Drowning of Echo is an interpretation of the Transformation of Echo & the story of Narcissus from Ovid's Metamorphoses. In a modern context, the fable offers insight into the relationship between narcissism and narcosis: the numbing effects of self-perception. We drew this association from chapter four of Marshall McLuhan's Understanding Media.
