Finally, the Macedonian king Pierus dared the Muses to a contest against his nine daughters, who, after their defeat, were transformed into prattling magpies. Even though usually described as virgin goddesses, the Muses seemed like the perfect candidates for mothers of few mythical musicians and dancers. Consequently, Orpheus was often identified as the son of Calliope, as were sometimes the Sirens , who were more commonly linked to either Terpsichore or Melpomene.

In the first place, an invocation of the muse at the beginning of an epic is conventional, so Milton is acknowledging his awareness of Homer, Virgil, and later poets, and signaling that he has mastered their format and wants to be part of their tradition. But by identifying his muse as the divine spirit that inspired the Bible and created the world, he shows that his ambitions go far beyond joining the club of Homer and Virgil. For example, when he catalogs the prominent devils in Hell and explains the various names they are known by and which cults worshipped them, he makes devils of many gods whom the Greeks, Ammonites, and other ancient peoples worshipped.
