Havelock (63-97) Agenda Item...

Agenda Item: "The reason for their existence is not inspirational, as it later became, but functional.” - Havelock, pg 79.

Personally whenever I hear the term muse it makes me think of something that inspires one to create something. We often hear phrases like "she was my muse" and this is a referral to the woman that inspired someone to create. It is interesting to look at the muse as a tool to aid in memory because of their passing on of the oral tradition. The idea of the muse as a functional tool is one that I don't find that strange.
