About the Author

Sappho, whom Plato (see Vols. 3 and 4) called "the tenth Muse," was the greatest of the early Greek lyric poets. She was born at Mytilene on Lesbos and was a member---perhaps the head---of a group of women who honored the Muses and Aphrodite. Her family was aristocratic; it is said that she was mostrar mais married and had a daughter. Her brilliant love lyrics, marriage songs, and hymns to the gods are written in Aeolic dialect in many meters, one of which is named for her---the Sapphic. Mostly fragments survive of the nine books she is thought to have authored. Her verse is simple and direct, exquisitely passionate and vivid. Catullus, Ovid, and Swinburne (see Vol. 1) were among the many later poets she influenced. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

A bilingual edition (Greek on the left-hand page, English on the right) of the complete surviving poetry of Sappho, some from papyri and some from quotations by other authors of a line or even just a word. TBH, I didn't find any of it particularly memorable but it was interesting to see just how fragmentary fragments are.

In Cytherea, amateurish apparatus for translations not hinting about methods, precision in sources and their structures but then again it's not a Loeb edition. A poetess should translate poetry and for all that I know of style the interpretation is at best dull. Reconstruction of her life is interesting, but scholarship of mid-XX century done a better job on reconstruction of Sosipatra's life with less sources available. I know, Sappho lived several centuries earlier, but was much better known than Sosipatra the Theurgist throughout the classical setting. An average compilation done half-heartedly.… (mais)
