The Muses are goddesses representing different arts and sciences in Greek mythology. They are the daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus.

Most commonly the Muses are:

  • Kalliope (or Calliope), the eldest and wisest, the muse of epic poetry, mother of Orpheus
  • Euterpe, the muse of music and lyric poetry. She loved flute playing, and some even say she invented the double flute. Euterpe had a son named Rhesus, who was killed in the battle at Troy, according to Homer's Iliad.
  • Klio (also Kleio or Clio), the muse of history
  • Erato, the muse of lyric/love poetry
  • Melpomene, the muse of tragedy
  • Polyhymnia, the muse of sacred poetry (hymn) and geometry
  • Terpsichore, the muse of dance
  • Thalia, the muse of comedy
  • Urania, the muse of astronomy and astrology

The word muse is also sometimes used for a person who inspires somebody else, or any other type of inspiring object. Muse can also be used to describe one's creative thoughts, such as poetry or a musical composition.
