Orpheus's music is able to charm everything including people and gods. In the poem it says, "Thus did the forest denizens though wild,/ Acknowledge music's gentle influence...Orpheus chief was pleased, the nymphs to see,/ And, fairest of them all, Eurydice." In this excerpt, Orpheus's musical influence is shown when the forest calms and the nymphs are entranced. When Orpheus goes the entrance to the Underworld, Charon tells him that he swore not to let any living being into his boat to cross the river. However, Orpheus takes begins to play music and "when Charon heard it, he plied fast his oar, / Orpheus he took on board, and pushed from shore. / Then Charon ferried him across the stream." Orpheus's music charmed Charon just as it does any living thing.Further Explanation
