Muse is a children's magazine published by Carus Publishing, the publishers of Cricket, in collaboration with Smithsonian. Launched in October 1996, it is published in Chicago, Illinois, and has readers throughout the United States and around the world. Recommended for ages ten and above, it features articles about science, history, and the arts. Muse encourages the reader to think about questions that may not have definite answers. Nine cartoon characters, known as the Muses, appear in the margins throughout the magazine as well as in the Kokopelli & Company comic strip. Among them, only Urania was one of the original Greek muses; Kokopelli, a trickster, is a god in many native American tribes.
Famous quotes containing the word muse:
“For poetry, hes past his prime,
He takes an hour to find a rhyme;
His fire is out, his wit decayed,
His fancy sunk, his muse a jade.
Id have him throw away his pen,
But theres no talking to some men.”
—Jonathan Swift (16671745)
