Description

A vivid, contemporary translation of the greatest Greek love poet by the prize-winning poet and translator.


 


Sappho's thrilling lyric verses have been unremittingly popular for more than 2,600 years--certainly a record for poetry of any kind--and love for her art only increases as time goes on. Though her extant work consists only of a collection of fragments and a handful of complete poems, her mystique endures to be discovered anew by each generation, and to inspire new efforts at bringing the spirit of her Greek words faithfully into English.


 


This book is adapted from a book previously in hardcover as Sweetbitter Love.
