The Greek Poet Sappho

Sappho was an ancient Greek poet who infused her works with intense emotions - especially love, desire, longing, and their companion, suffering. She crafted her poems primarily as a tribute to the private world of women, something from which we are generally excluded in Greek literature. Therefore the poems provide us with a valuable and remarkable glimpse into the lives and aspirations of Greek girls. In some respects, they could be termed "romantic", but Sappho transcends her subject with such a moving, insightful, and poignant power that the poems are still highly relevant even today. Simply stated, she created some of the most vibrant love poetry ever composed. Naturally, someone as intimately concerned with love as Sappho would be drawn to the irresistible realm of the goddess of love. And indeed, Aphrodite plays a significant role in many of Sappho's poems. It is to this goddess that Sappho addresses several of her works. In some cases, it seems as if the poet were a supplicant, begging Aphrodite for mercy from the ravages of unrequited love; in others, Sappho sings joyfully of the beautiful deity, and the poems are like graceful gifts to this golden goddess:
"Leave Krete and come to this holy temple
where the graceful grove of apple trees
circles an altar smoking with frankincense.

Sappho (650-590 BC), Greek poet, whose poetry was so renowned that Plato referred to her two centuries after her death as the tenth muse. She was born on the island of Lésvos, probably in Mitylene. Although the details of her life are lacking, it appears that she was of good family and was a contemporary of the lyric poets Alcaeus and Stesichorus. According to tradition, Alcaeus was her lover. Another legend holds that because of unrequited love for the young boatman Phaon she leaped to her death from a steep rock on the island of Levkás. She had a daughter named Cleïs and two brothers. The fragmentary remains of Sappho's poems indicate that she taught her art to a group of maidens, to whom she was devotedly attached and whose bridal odes she composed when they left her to be married. Later writers of antiquity, commenting upon the group, accused Sappho of immorality and vice, from which arose the modern terms for female homosexuality, “lesbianism” and “sapphism.”

18. Sappho And Lesbian Poetry
A short study of several poems, with text in translation, by William Harris PhD, Prof.em. Middlebury College.
A much more detailed Study on Sappho has the Greek of Frag. I, with art background. in .pdf 90 pages.
When we speak of Sappho, the poet from the island of Lesbos, and her poetry, we are thinking of something very special, a transcendental kind of poetry which is somehow purer, fairer, lovelier than anything else in the Western world. Considering how little we know about the poet herself, and how little we have of the remains of her poetry, we might well ask ourselves if we are not participating in a literary myth, creating a poet-figure of such great talent with so little verse, that one can only admire from a vast distance. It is hard to believe that in early Byzantine times whole books of her poetry were there to read, even if the Aeolic special language was largely unintelligible to most readers. But her fame was large and it seems somehow unthinkable that her gems were simply not copies, perhaps even destroyed by orders. Odd books have survived, Lucretius whom no one could really understand in the ninth century, Catullus who could be shocking, and so with the churchly Byzantines too one would expect. I have thought that male homosexuality may have been less threatening to a growing Christian church council than the homosexuality of females, which if developed could hamper childbearing. But this is unknown, no attitudes about same-sex relationships have been so harsh and unrelenting as those of these last two centuries, and it is useless to pry further back on such a personal and secret topic.
