Thalia and Melpomene
Comedic Thalia is one of nine muses. They are associated with music, song and dance. Supposedly, they were fathered by Zeus. Thalia’s name means ‘blooming, rich festivity’. Other renderings include ‘joyous, verdant’.
Melpomene, means “choir.” She personifies tragedy. She carries in hand a tragic mask or sword.
Both Thalia and Melpomene are sometimes adorned with ivy.
In ancient Greek religion and mythology, the Muses are the inspirational goddesses of literature, science, and the arts. They were considered the source of the knowledge embodied in the poetry, lyric songs, and myths that were related orally for centuries in ancient Greek culture.
The word "muse" can refer in general to anyone or anything which inspires an artist, musician, or writer.
