About has some information about each of these poets who were called muses by a male poet. It may have caused some discussion. They were respected for their earthly works.
The Muse of History may have changed the way people think about their identity in time by allowing this man to write such a thing. Perhaps the ego of Clio was what caused a natural inflection point in that age (the writer was an obscure elegiac poet of the first century B.C., Antipater of Thessalonica).
Could this realization epos have made a new, earthly man of words divine?
