So beautiful she was harassed by many men- Lamia made her invisible to prevent this
'She plucks the fruit unseen, she bathes unseen; And by my power is her beauty veiled To keep it unafronted, unassailed, By the love- glances of unlovely eyes'
She was turned into a serpent- we feel sympathetic towards her. She is crying when we meet her
'And for her eyes- what could such eyes do there But weep, and weep,that were born so fair,'
Knows Lamia is a serpent and can see this- contrasts to Lycius who is blind- tragic blindness
'Lamia trembled...Lycius! Wherefore did you blind yourself from his quick eyes?'
Megalopsychia (greatness of soul)
'Charioting foremost in the envious race, Like a young Jove with calm uneager face'
Jove-King of Gods- shows he is religious
Fools Lycius that she is a real woman however she is a serpent
'That Lycius could not love in half a fright, so threw the goddess off, and won his heart'
