Lover of the Muse

Post by mgomm7 » Fri Jun 22, 2018 3:04 pm

Hello!

Please forgive my ignorance. I know very little about ancient Greek (though I've read much ancient Greek writing in translation as a philosophy undergraduate). I am in the midst of an art project, and am hoping that there may be a way (even if not entirely--or at all--orthodox) to translate "muse lover" or "desirer of the muse" into ancient Greek (sort of on the model of philosophy as "lover of wisdom"). I realize that there are a number of different ways to translate "love," -- I'm looking for something that captures a feeling of remote longing that is also mellifluous.

I know I'm asking for a lot...

Thanks for any help any of you might be able to offer.

Matt
