Abstract:

"For two and a half thousand years, poets and readers have been moved and inspired by the writing of Sappho, and the myths that surround her. Born around 630 B.C. on the Greek island of Lesbos, Sappho is now regarded as the greatest lyrical poet of ancient Greece, ironic and passionate, capturing the troubled depths of love, the beauty of nature, the ceremony of ritual and the power of spiritual longing. Her work survives only in fragments, yet her influence extends throughout Western literature, fuelled by the speculations and romances which have gathered around her name, her story, and her sexuality." "Margaret Reynolds has produced a remarkable anthology, bound together with vivid narrative accounts of the way different periods have taken up Sappho's haunting story. The Sappho Companion brings together many different kinds of work, ranging from the blue-stocking appreciations to juicy fantasies."--Jacket.
