Muse title
sample title text

    This is a Greek theme web set.  I used the ancient Greek subject of the nine Muses; goddesses or spiritual guides who embody the arts.   The The nine Greek muses were worshipped in the ancient world for inspiration and creative flow. 

    Above you see a sample title graphic with the Muses dancing with the god Apollo, in the .zip file you will find this graphic as a blank (without words) for you to insert a web page title on.  If you don't have a graphic program capable of doing that, e-mail me and I will do it for you as time allows.  Below you will find the Muses with Greek motif graphic divider and Greek vase bullet designed for this page.  The font used on the buttons (there is a blank for you to insert the links you need) and suggested for the Greek title graphic above is called "Carla."    I have also included Greek Muse navigation graphics (you could place them at the bottom of your pages if appropriate) that match this web set.

Greek divider

The Olympian system set Apollo as the leader of the Muses, Apollon Mousagetes.  Not only are Muses used in modern English to refer to an inspiration, as when one cites his/her own artistic muse, but also in the words "amuse" or "musing upon," which are rooted in their name.

When taken together, the Muses form a complete picture of the subjects proper to poetic art.  The muses were not assigned standardized divisions of poetry with which they are now identified until late Hellenistic times.  The canonical nine Muses, with their fields of patronage, as established since the Renaissance, are:

Greek bullet Calliope (Chief of the muses and muse of epic poetry) Greek bullet Polyhymnia (muse of sacred song)
Greek bullet Euterpe (muse of lyric song) Greek bullet Terpsichore (muse of dance)
Greek bullet Clio (muse of history) Greek bullet Thalia (muse of comedy and bucolic poetry)
Greek bullet Erato (muse of erotic poetry) Greek bullet Urania (muse of astronomy)
Greek bullet Melpomene (muse of tragedy)
