A muse? An Apollo? What?

Dude Muses or “Duses”: Do They Exist? by Sarah Ogar on the University of Michigan site.

This. Just this.

In centuries past, there never was a male equivalent of the ideal female muse that maestros and artists associated their final works with.

But recently, I found this thought floating around in my head and just needed to put it down somewhere, while simultaneously researching about it.

And that link up there is what came up. It contains pretty good advice too.

If people, regardless of gender, inspire you, use that inspiration for the good of your art.

I certainly have used the specific feelings she mentions in her post to create what I can and be inspired.

But really though, why couldn’t there be a male equivalent of a muse? Duduse anyone? Or just plain Apollo?

Just a thought.
