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 …
one was in charge of …
one was in charge of …
one was in charge of …
one was in charge of …
one was in charge of…

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

in charge of
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.

  20. Cynthik says:

    Thank you again, for another beautiful lesson.It’s not only an english lesson, I think it’s a lesson of sensitivity as well.
    I’m learning a lot, and I felt moved, listening the recording and reading this article. I feel that we have the opportunity to listen the music of others when they speak.In every communication, we can find music, a tone, a rythm that enable us to enjoy the presence of the conversation. Something that we are creating or construct in common with others.
    Grammar and trees, words and leaves are our brothers and sisters. We all belong to a possibility that offers to get in touch with each other.
    Let’s try to understand each other, the meaning of everyone’s music, the beauty, and the colors of each word, sentence or speech.
    It is in our hands to develop a big orchestra. As human beings we need the muses. All of them. We need to recover poetry, dance, understand some dramas…and laugh. Let’s sing. Let’s listen. Let’s enjoy the silence to enjoy ourselves. Big hug for you guys.
