Sappho: A New Rendering

Sappho (c. 630 BCE - c. 570 BCE) and Publius (Ovid) Ovidius Naso (c. 43 BC - 18 AD)
Translated by H. De Vere Stacpoole (1863 - 1951)

Sappho lived in the Greek-speaking Aeolian islands off the coast of Turkey. She is one of the very few female poets from antiquity. Although her work was very popular in ancient Greece and Rome, only small fragments survive today. This book includes translations of these fragments, as well as a poem from Ovid's Heroides, "Sappho to Phaon," a fictional letter from Sappho to her assumed lover. (Summary by Libby Gohn)
