Uninspired


I don't know if it's reading "Henry V" which really lacks of any literary creativity other than the showing off of Shakespeare's linguistic abilities and the slight sarcasm ensued by secondary characters (generating a "meh" but fail to provide great amusement) or rather an event-less week or maybe getting used to a certain rhythm of life, but I am greatly uninspired. My muse has left me once again. I know that those who are students of "Gender Studies" get annoyed with depicting women as fantastical characters such as muses and nymphs, but I am inclined towards the Greek and Roman myths, and to me they're just literary characters (as opposed to symbols meant to diminish the role of women to creatures of mysticism rather than functioning members of society).

The painting is by Edmond Francois Aman-Jean called "Hesiod and his muse"

What "function" do they serve? Reproduction?

Is that a rhetorical question or are you seeking an answer?

Well, by functioning I meant someone who participates in the advancement of society, be it biological, monetarily or sociological, etc...

I don't really want to get into the whole significance of reproduction.

Yeah, it was rhetorical and lacking much needed context. Thanks for the reply anyway.
