Now I am going to tell you the story of the nine muses.

Long ago in ancient Greece there were nine sisters.

The Gods of Mt Olympus put them in charge of nine faculties.

One was in charge of epic poetry.
One was in charge of lyric poetry.
One was in charge of drama.
One was in charge of history.
One was in charge of dance.

one was in charge of …

each
each of them
each of them
They were each in charge of different faculties.

in charge of

The nine muses are in charge of nine different human faculties, according to the ancient Greeks.

It is from them that we have the word “music”.

Use the internet to find out the names of the nine muses. Write and tell us about the nine muses. Do not copy. Read and take notes and then write your own original text about the nine muses.
