Modern Day Muse, Desiree Aragon, Focuses On The Relationship Between Artist/Creator and Muse
Sacramento, California – June 18, 2018 – Desiree Aragon, Modern Day Muse and co-author of the best-selling book, Ready, Set, Go!, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, "As The Muse Muses." Ms. Aragon recognizes the ever-evolving importance of the muse throughout history and in contemporary society.
Aragon writes, "I've been deeply engaged of late in thought about the Muse and how the role of Muse has evolved over the centuries." She adds, "Once defined as, "a woman, or a force personified as a woman, who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist," in modern times, a muse may just as often be a man as a woman."
"In Greek and Roman mythology," says Aragon, "Muse referred to, "each of nine goddesses, the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, who preside over the arts and sciences." They were both the embodiments and sponsors of performed metrical speech. She further adds, "Besides music, the other areas presided over by the muses included Science, Geography, Mathematics, Philosophy, Art, Drama, and Inspiration."
According to Aragon, "Whether through performing something beautiful or simply exuding physical beauty, the role of the muse is to inspire." She continues highlighting some of the famous muses of the past who, "include Dora Maar, who inspired many of Picasso's most recognized art. Edie Sedgwick served as Muse to Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan. Camille Claudel was the inspiration behind much of Auguste Rodin's work. Helga was one of Andrew Wyeth's most powerful Muses." Aragon continues writing, "In the literary world you'll find Zelda served as muse to F. Scott Fitzgerald, Fanny Brawne inspired John Keats. And, the power of a male muse is clear in the case of Neal Cassady who served as muse to Jack Kerouac." She says, "Even Einstein had a muse in Mileva Mariç. The list of muses is endless."
As Aragon points out, "It's impossible to know when or if a muse will appear in one's life. Likewise, it's equally impossible to know if one will serve the role as muse." She adds, "However, it is possible to consciously aspire to inspire others to their best and highest expressions both personally and professionally. This is the role I have been performing in service to a growing list of creative clients in a wide range of businesses."
