Muses

These are the Muses?

Yep.

“There were nine Muses according to Hesiod, protecting a different art and being symbolised with a different item; Calliope (epic poetry - writing tablet), Clio (history - scroll), Euterpe (lyric poetry - aulos, a Greek flute), Thalia (comedy and pastoral poetry - comic mask), Melpomene (tragedy - tragic mask), Terpsichore (dance - lyre), Erato (love poetry - cithara, a Greek type of lyre), Polyhymnia (sacred poetry - veil), and Urania (astronomy - globe and compass). On the other hand, Varro mentions that only three Muses exist: Melete (practice), Mneme (memory) and Aoide (song).”

Reminds me of Why Man Creates.

Varro was working for the ancient greek’s equivalent of McKinsey and rightsized the whole muse operation to a commercially sustainable level, concentrating on core competence.

Were redundant Muses retrained to enter the PR field?
