About the Author:

Sappho was a Greek lyric poet, born on the island of Lesbos. The Alexandrians included her in the list of nine lyric poets. Her birth was sometime between 630 and 612 BC, and it is said that she died around 570 BC, but little is known for certain about her life. The bulk of her poetry, which was well-known and greatly admired through much of antiquity, has been lost, but her immense reputation has endured through surviving fragments.

Text: English, Greek (translation)

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Sappho, the earliest and most famous Greek woman poet, sang her songs around 600 BCE on the island of Lesbos. Of the little that survives from the approximately nine papyrus scrolls collected in antiquity, all is translated here: substantial poems, fragments, single words - and, notably, five stanzas of a poem that came to light in 2014. Also included are new additions to five fragments from the latest discovery, and a nearly complete poem published in 2004. The power of Sappho s poetry - her direct style, rich imagery, and passion - is apparent even in these remnants. Diane Rayor s translations of Greek poetry are graceful and poetic, modern in diction yet faithful to the originals. The full range of Sappho s voice is heard in these poems about desire, friendship, rivalry, family, and passion for the light of life. In the introduction and notes, internationally respected Sappho scholar Andre Lardinois presents plausible reconstructions of Sappho s life and work, the importance of the recent discoveries in understanding the performance of her songs, and the story of how these fragments survived.
