The Muses are the Goddesses who inspire us in our creativity. They are the daughters – there are 9 of them – of Zeus and Mnemosyne. The 9 Muses are:
Calliope – muse of epic poetry.
Clio – muse of history.
Erato – muse of love poetry.
Euterpe – muse of song and Elegiac poetry.
Melpomene – muse of tragedy.
Polyhymnia – muse of hymns.
Terpsichore – muse of dance.
Thalia – muse of comedy.
Urania – muse of astronomy.
When we are wanting to create a fantastic piece of writing, or other creative piece, we should call upon the relevant muse to help us in our endeavour.
