Description - The Sappho History by Margaret Reynolds

In "The Sappho History" Margaret Reynolds traces the story of the reception of Sappho's poetry and her afterlife in literature and art from the mid-18th century. For women writers in the Romantic period, she symbolized possibility; for the young Tennyson, she was a private ancestor helping him make his own name as a poet. Richly illustrated throughout, this book provides a fresh view of Western culture from the Romantic period to the modern.
