The Poet

Orpheus was a legendary musician, poet and prophet from Thrace. His enchanting music could charm people, animals, monsters and even stones. Some say that his mother was Calliope, the Muse of epic poetry, and his father was either the Thracian king Oeagrus, or the god of poetry and music, Apollo himself. Orpheus is an important figure in Ancient Greek myth and appears in several major stories, including the legend of the Argo.
