She lived on the island of Lesbos around 600 B.C.E. She composed lyric poetry, only fragments of which survive. And she was - and still is - one of the most highly regarded women poets of Greek and Roman Antiquity. Little more than this can be said with certainty about Sappho, yet more is said. Her life is the stuff of legends; her poetry, the source of much speculation. This book is a search for Sappho through the poetry she wrote, the culture she inhabited, and the myths that have arisen around her.
