Hi, I have a quesiton about the verb ‘look’. I’m reading ‘Cupid and Psyche’, in which Venus, the jelous mother, impose hard tasks on Psyche. One of these is sorting out heaps of grain. Then she said:
“You look such a dreadful sight, slave,” said Venus, " that the only way that you are ever likely to get a lover is by hard work."
I don’t understand what she said. Usually I use ‘look’ with a prepositional phrases, such as look at something or look down on somebody. Look with its direct object… how can I translate the sentence? It’s unusual for me and hard to get. Please help me out!
