Who- or what- were they?

Well, they were Personifications

of Knowledge and the Arts,

 especially Poetry, Literature, Dance and Music

 Erato- the Muse of Love Poetry

 

Writers of antiquity

would ascribe to each Muse a particular role:

 

 Calliope became the Muse of epic poetry;

Clio, the Muse of history;

 Erato- the Muse of erotic poetry;

 Euterpe, the Muse of lyric poetry;

 Melpomene, the Muse of Theatrical tragedy;

 Polyhymnia, the muse of sublime hymns;

 Terpsichore, the Muse of choral song and dance;

 Thalia, the Muse of comedy;

and Ourania, the Muse of astronomy.

 

 

The symbols of

 

were the Lyre, the Scrolls, the Globe, the Writing Tablet,

the Comic and Tragic Mask and the Flute.

 

 

The Teachings of

 

Calliope

 is the muse of Epic Poetry. Referred to as the Superior Muse, she inspires heroic poems and prose, encouraging responsive, coherent language.

Clio

 is the muse of History. She celebrates great deeds and accomplishments, and shares news of these deeds. In her role as historian, Clio asks us what has worked to date and what has not worked.

Erato

 the muse of Love Poetry, challenging us to share our love with others. That love and enthusiasm can be infectious, leading others to engage more fully in the process.

Euterpe

 As the muse of Music, she can be called on to add harmony and grace to poetry, lyrics and prose. She supports our efforts to make our music poetic and harmonious.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Polyhymnia

is the muse of Sacred Music and Poetry. She accompanies us during serious, pensive and contemplative moments.

 Terpsichore
reminds us to Dance, encouraging us to release our inhibitions. She makes anything creatively possible.

 Thalia

 the Muse of Comedy, wears the theatrical comedy mask. She reminds us to step back from our work and try not to take everything so seriously. With Thaliaís help, we can gain a new perspective.

  Urania

 is the muse of Astronomy. Each time we invent a new process or discover a new tool, Urania sits beside us guiding our way, like the celestial stars.

Melpomene

 is the muse of tragedy. She helps us understand how to improve for the next time. Melpomene teaches us lessons of patience, forgiveness, teamwork and humility.
