In the Greek mythical universe, the birth of the Muses represents a cosmogonical process’ moment of completion. Through their song, the world as a whole is revealed through the medium of an ode. The world order, its origin and nature, come into play with the voice that can, through inspired poets, find its way to the ears of mortals. In this act of manifesting the world, however, the Muses reveal themselves as well. After all, the poet often sings praises of his divine patronesses. This inspired speech therefore becomes the primal basis of a reflexive relation to oneself. Nevertheless, the revelation of the Muses in poems also reveals a significant link of these goddesses to specific places in the Greek world, such as Pieria, Olympos or Helicon, and the localization of the Muses’ influence and the specific character of these places shall be the focal point of this paper.
