The Muses II

Lesson from the Shenzhen Daily:
http://szdaily.sznews.com/html/2009-01/22/content_497660.htm

Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

Questions:
1. Why do you think the "Muse of Epic Poetry" is considered the "Chief of the Muses"?
2. Look at some of the word roots here (calli-, ero-, poly-). Can you think of other words that use these roots? Try using them in sentences.
3. Did you ever think of history and astronomy as "arts" in the same way as poetry, music, and dance? What do you think of this?
