What is the Tenth Muse?
In classic Greek mythology there were nine muses that inspired poets, musicians, scientists, artists, etc.
Shakespeare introduced the Tenth Muse to the world when he said: “Be thou the Tenth Muse, ten times in worth than those old nine which rhymers invocate”.
The Tenth Muse unites those nine muses into one focused source of inspiration. We are the 21’st century Tenth Muse - the fusion of creativity into a digital world.
