Melpomene, whose name means "to sing", is the muse of theatre and tragedy. She is invoked to help write beautiful lyrical phrases.

There are nine streets in the Lower Garden District named after the Muses of Greek mythology—the inspirational goddesses of literature, science, and the arts.

"According to myth, poets, artists, scholars, and musicians would call on their particular Muse to ask for inspiration and guidance in their creative process.”
