Not many people know this but the muses in Hercules have names; Calliope, Clio, Melpomene, Terpsichore, and Thalia. I didn’t realize this up until a few years ago and my mind was completely blown.
They don’t need names to be amazing!
Yup! And in greek mythology there are actually nine of them:
Calliope- Epic Poetry, Clio - History, Erato - love poetry, Euterpe- Song, Melpomene- Tragedy, Polyhymnia- Hymns, Terpsichore- Dance, Thalia- Comedy, Urania- Astronomy
Could you imagine nine of these sassy bamfs running around?!
Sappho of Lesbos, who was considered to be greatest poetess ever by the ancient Greeks, was called “the tenth muse”.
