Holmes updates the Greeks for the MySpace generation, figuring Orpheus as a rock star, Eros and Psyche as IM buddies, and Narcissus as maybe the prototypical MySpace junkie, getting back distorted echoes of the idealized self he’s anxious to project. The fun's in the way she finds analogues for our "new" online social interactions (like this one) in ancient myths of thwarted desire, which invites the thought that virtuality may just be imagination with its ballcap turned askew.
