Bonjour, continuing the brief Muse profiles started in last post. When they are all introduced they’ll be reordered to make an elemental story of the human experience.
Euterpe is the Muse of lyric poetry.
While it is said that Euterpe carried a flute, I can’t imagine how she could sing or recite lyrics with a wind instrument at her mouth. Bards accompany themselves with string instruments, so just for this incarnation, Euterpe plays the harp.
The harp she has here is not “period” classical Greece. Muses have always and everywhere existed for artists, and are not bound to one historical guise.
Melpomene is the Muse of tragedy.
Thaleia is the Muse of comedy.
