    Paperback À Poems PDF/EPUB µ poems kindle, Poems PDF/EPUBLyrical and universally capturing love and desire 35 stars rounded up Some say an army of horsemensome of footsoldiers some of shipsis the fairest thing on the black earthbut I say it is what one lovesA Pompeii fresco of Sappho who by Plato was called the tenth MuseLyrical which is actually a term derived from how poetry was recited in ancient Greece sung and accompanied by a lyre is just another term that Sappho started of She gives prominence to the isle of Lesbos and Sapphic love is another term for same sex love between women For on this I can recommend listening to given the time between us and her 2600 years ago it makes it hard to say anything definitive of the author The yearning and appreciation of females is very clear so the monickers are not undeserved Funnily enough or maybe a quirk in translation there is one poem that alludes to love for a guy and two that seem to refer to a daughter so who knows You mayblame Aphroditesoft as she isshe has almostkilled me

    Paperback À Poems PDF/EPUB µ poems kindle, Poems PDF/EPUBSo this is my first time reading Sappho and I absolutely loved itAs a queer person I really wanted to read her because I wanted to feel her voice and I always want queer women to be represented in work For me this book was really special because of how ancient it is which proves to me that queer people have been around since forever and always will be unfortunately though Sappho's work is fragmentary Fragmentary because she was a woman and she loved other women Many of her poems were burned of destroyed despite the fact that she was one of Greece's first and most prolific lyrical poets She wrote nine books If I think about it for too long I get angry And then I get angry that years later after finally acknowledging her importance academics most of them white male and heterosexual veheme

I have no doubt that Sappho was an accomplished and important poet who shaped the genre and influenced many later greats I'm not knowledgeable enough to know just how influential she was so I take other people's word for that For myself I was looking forward to trying her poetry and finding out what this 'lesbian' poet had to say I soon realised I wouldn't have the usual problem of finding a translation I liked though that's still an issue but here the problem is just to find the text itself It's turning up all the time found in caves dug up or fragmented on pottery It's really a miracle that any survives at all but that doesn't make it an easy thing to rea

    Paperback À Poems PDF/EPUB µ poems kindle, Poems PDF/EPUBWe are tantalized too that there could be Sappho to come A lost painting is lost forever A copy is not an original But with poems every copy is the original even a few lines scrawled on the back of a laundry list and stuffed into an Egyptian mummy We hang on anxiously for every syllable that can be added to the lacework of loss because Sappho seems to speak directly to us as if knowing someday we would overhear Tears prick my eyes when I read even in Rayor’s plain version in a language that did not yet exist two and a half thousand years ago I say someone in another time will remember us Classical Intoxication Love through the lens of SapphoReviewd by AE Stallingshttpwwwweeklystandardcomarticle
