The Fisherman and His Soul

The Fisherman and His Soul

In this mad pursuit, the fisherman is betrayed by the very thing he was trying to be rid of because in the process he allowed himself to be seduced by the things of the flesh and the world, since the soul without heart is bent on endless attempts to satiety. His soul has tricked and beguiled him and so he loses the object of his love; when at last he refuses to listen to the soul and goes back to the water the beautiful mermaid is washed up on the shore and she lies, dead in his arms.
