Description: Born around 630 B.C. on the island of Lesbos, Sappho is considered the greatest lyric poet of Greece, and one of the greatest artists of any age. Her poems exist only as fragments, and facts about her life don't go beyond much more than speculation, but Sappho's influence -- as writer, voice, and image -- is felt in every era. Ovid Baudelaire, and Jeanette Winterson are just a few of the writers who have claimed Sappho as their own. But who is the real Sappho: lesbian, mother, poet, lover, suicide, warning, or icon?

In this innovative blend of personal reflection and cultural history, Margaret Reynolds illuminates Sappho's genius, her life, her sexuality, and the extraordinary influence she has had across the centuries. Built on key themes, this book features a rich offering of poems, plays, essays, and stories by writers as diverse as Rainer Maria Rilke, Virginia Woolf, H. D. Coleridge and others that bring Sappho's legacy to life.
