Quotes about Clio:[edit]

  • The Muse Clio plays her lyre, as melodious as memory, seated on a frightful mountain of corpses – she tries to evoke, from the dead of the deceased centuries, figures more alive than those of us today. (Andrea Emo)
  • Because basically, things – open space or not is only the absence of the body at every point? This is why Urania is older than Clio.

(Josif Brodski)

  • Clio in a dove-colored dress, He adorns his temple with a laurel halo. A triumphant fanfare in one hand, in the second, a volume of ancient history. This is how he poses for posterity

(Jacek Kaczmarski)
