Edmund Dulac: Gods and Mortals in Love

Perseus and Andromeda

Perseus rescues Andromeda from the sea monster. Edmund Dulac art print from the illustrations to Gods and Mortals in love.

Cassiopeia, Queen of the Ethiopians, was so proud of her beauty that she dared to compare herself to the Sea-Nymphs. The indignant Sea-Nymphs sent a sea-monster to ravage the coast. Her husand, King Cepheus was told by the oracle to sacrifice his daughter Andromeda to the monster. Perseus beheld Andromeda chained to a rock, waiting for the serpent to seal her fate. Had it not been for her tears and her hair that moved with the breeze, he would have taken her for a marble statue.

He asked her, "O virgin, undeserving of those chains, but rather of such as bind fond lovers together, tell me, I beseech you, your name, and the name of your country, and why you are thus bound." Andromeda, silent from modesty, did not answer at once, but Perseus persisted. At last, she reaveled her name and that of her country, and told the tale of her mother's pride. While she was talking, the sea-monster appeared, his head reared above the waters, breaking the waves with his breast. Andromeda cried out. Then Perseus spoke, "There will be time enough for tears; this hour is all we have for rescue. "
