Shouldn't Lilith be that way? After all she's not a heroine in the Bible.
June 01, 2010
What way?
June 02, 2010
The way you described her as being portrayed in the painting.
June 02, 2010
You mean as vain and self-obsessed?
June 02, 2010
yeah.
June 02, 2010
No, the Lilith in myth is more obsessed with causing other people pain, so I don't think she'd care what she looked like that much.
June 02, 2010
But all women were considered to be vain--vanity and pride of any kind was a big nono.
June 02, 2010
Not so much with the Pre-Raphaelites. Women were considered naturally beautiful, so vanity was just kind of a symptom of the class system.
June 02, 2010
But you're throwing out the whole Biblical origin of Lilith. Modesty was a biggie in the Old Testament.
June 02, 2010
Yeah, but Lilith's sin wasn't Vanity, but rather Lust and Wrath.
June 02, 2010
She didn't manage to rack up a couple more?
June 02, 2010
Well, I'm sure she did over time, but I meant her original sins, so to speak. I don't think vanity was one of them. What sin would sitting on men's faces and turning virginal women into vampires fall under?

"Vanity, all is vanity."
