Here is the poem in which eurydice is accusing orpheus, her lover for being
arrogant. Euridice has trampled a snake by mistake and died, orpheus goes
underworld to take her back, but his request is recieved on one condition
that he must not look back until she has crossed the underworld and
reached to the earth again but orpheus looks back just on the verge of
ending of underworld and Euridice is doomed again.

That's only the first of 7 parts of this poem...

And you can't just say it's "about" something. The poem is a poem. You
can't deny anything that's written in it or elevate something else to the
only important thing.

Personally, i think it is the arrogance of men and their inability to trust
women. He was unable to tust the fact that she is with him, right behind
him following him and wants to be with him just as much as he wants to be
with her. and in this peom she asks him why did he look back, why couldnt
he just trust that she is right there behind him without looking. why
couldnt he just feel it...

I don't think this talks about her being influenced by another person.
Eurydice in the ancient Greek myth was Orpheus' wife, she died and was sent
to hell. Orpheus could go and take her back at a condition: that in the way
back in the world he should not have turned his face to look at her. Of
course he did, that's why he could not have his wife back. "Thanks" to him
Eurydice couldnt leave hell.
The topic of this poem is the arrogance of the male, who can neither wait
nor respect any conditions..he just does what he wants and what in that
moment feels like, without caring too much.

I think this is about a fall from grace, and someone being influenced by a
person they don't admire or even particularly like. They blame that person
for their "reinhabitance of Hell" only to relfect a little deeper and
discover that they are not so very different from that person afterall.

PS- Don't do drugs, Nick! It kills you. Plus if you aren't high you might
actually come up with something articulate to say.
