Here, Derrida discusses the Greek myth of Echo and Narcissus, linking ideas such as Echo's repeating of Narcissus' last words (in whatever he spoke), to the non-transparency, the 'blindness' that he feels characterizes all speech ... however, Derrida maintains that Echo is able to 'appropriate' Narcissus' language in such a way that it becomes hers, in a sense, subverting Hera's punishment... he finally asks how two such 'blind' persons can love one another...
