Bulfinch's Mythology

Here we have Apollo and Daphne and how one of them refuses the other’s advances and becomes a laurel tree. Then we have Pyramus and Thisbe, the love story that inspired Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, or at least the bloody parts of it. And finally: Cephalus and Procris and how the wind is slutty and how misunderstanding can inspire uxoricide.
