I am the most sorrowful of the muses, despite my joyous song.

I am she who pushes the pens of poets who write their deaths.

I am she who inspired the greatest tragedies of history.

I am she who brings people to be drawn to sorrow.

I am Melpomene.


I am sometimes seen with garland, club, and sword. I wear cothurnes, the boots of tragic actors, and a crown of cypress.

I am daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and sister of Kalliope, Kleio, Euterpe, Erato, Terpsikhore, Ourania, Thaleia, and Polymnia. I am mother to the Sirens, who I bore to Achelous.
