There were once a king and queen, rulers of an unnamed city, who had three daughters of conspicuous beauty. The youngest and most beautiful was Psyche, whose admirers, neglecting the proper worship of the love goddess Venus, instead prayed and made offerings to her.

It was rumored that she was the second coming of Venus, or the daughter of Venus from an unseemly union between the goddess and a mortal. Venus is offended, and commissions Cupid to work her revenge.

Cupid is sent to shoot Psyche with an arrow so that she may fall in love with something hideous. He instead scratches himself with his own dart, which makes any living thing fall in love with the first thing it sees. Consequently, he falls deeply in love with Psyche and disobeys his mother’s order.

Although her two humanly beautiful sisters have married, the idolized Psyche has yet to find love. Her father suspects that they have incurred the wrath of the gods, and consults the oracle of Apollo. The response is unsettling: the king is to expect no human son-in-law, but rather a dragon-like creature who harasses the world with fire and iron and is feared by even Jupiter and the inhabitants of the underworld.

Although fearful and without sexual experience (virgin), she allows herself to be guided to a bedroom, where in the darkness a being she cannot see makes her his wife. She gradually learns to look forward to his visits, though he always departs before sunrise and forbids her to look upon him, and soon she becomes pregnant.

One night after Cupid falls asleep, Psyche carries out the plan her sisters devised: she brings out a dagger and a lamp she had hidden in the room, in order to see and kill the monster.

But when the light instead reveals the most beautiful creature she has ever seen, she is so startled that she wounds herself on one of the arrows in Cupid’s cast-aside quiver. Struck with a feverish passion, she spills hot oil from the lamp and wakes him. He flees, and though she tries to pursue, he flies away and leaves her on the bank of a river.

There she is discovered by the wilderness god Pan, who recognizes the signs of passion upon her. She acknowledges his divinity (numen), then begins to wander the earth looking for her lost love.

曾经有一个国王和王后,一个不知名城市的统治者,有三个美丽的女儿。最年轻最美丽的是赛琪(Psyche),他的仰慕者忽略了对爱神女神维纳斯(Venus)的正确崇拜,转而祈祷并向她献祭。

有传言说她是维纳斯的第二次来临,或者是维纳斯的女儿,来自女神和凡人之间不合貌的结合。金星得罪了,并委托丘比特报仇。

丘比特被派去用箭射击赛琪,以便她可能会爱上一些丑陋的东西。取而代之的是,他用自己的飞镖scratch抓自己,这使任何生物都爱上了它所看到的第一件事。因此,他深深地爱上了赛琪,并违抗了母亲的命令。

尽管她的两个美丽的姐妹已经结婚,但这位偶像化的Psyche尚未找到爱情。她的父亲怀疑他们引起了众神的愤怒,并咨询了阿波罗神谕。回应令人不安:国王不会期望人类的女son,而是一个像龙一样的生物,会用火和铁来骚扰整个世界,甚至会受到木星和黑社会居民的恐惧。

尽管她很害怕并且没有性经历(处女),但她还是允许自己被引导到一间卧室,在黑暗中她看不见的存在使她成为了他的妻子。她逐渐学会了期待他的来访,尽管他总是在日出前离开并禁止她看他,但很快她就​​怀孕了。

丘比特入睡后的一个晚上,赛琪执行了姐妹们制定的计划:她拿出一把匕首和一盏藏在房间里的灯,以便看到并杀死怪物。

但是,当光线照亮了她所见过的最美丽的生物时,她非常吃惊,以至于将自己缠绕在丘比特抛弃箭袋中的一根箭上。她满腔热情,从灯上溅出热油,叫醒了他。他逃跑了,尽管她想追赶,但他还是飞走了,把她留在河边。

在那里,她被荒野之神潘发现,潘认识到她身上充满了激情。她承认他的神性(数字),然后开始在地球上徘徊,寻找失去的爱。

Cupid and Psyche is a story originally from Metamorphoses (also called The Golden Ass), written in the 2nd century AD by Lucius Apuleius Madaurensis (or Platonicus). The tale concerns the overcoming of obstacles to the love between Psyche, “Soul” or “Breath of Life“) and Cupid (Latin Cupido, “Desire“) or Amor (“Love”, Greek Eros), and their ultimate union in a sacred marriage. Although the only extended narrative from antiquity is that of Apuleius from 2nd century AD, Eros and Psyche appear in Greek art as early as the 4th century BC. The story’s Neoplatonic elements and allusions to mystery religions accommodate multiple interpretations, and it has been analyzed as an allegory and in light of folktale, Märchen or fairy tale, and myth.

Since the rediscovery of Apuleius’s novel in the Renaissance, the reception of Cupid and Psyche in the classical tradition has been extensive. The story has been retold in poetry, drama, and opera, and depicted widely in painting, sculpture, and even wallpaper. Though Psyche is usually referred to in Roman mythology by her Greek name, her Roman name through direct translation is Anima.
