Sappho...in 9 Fragments

Sappho...in 9 FragmentsT378383103
As Sappho herself reminds us: all education is a form of seduction. Your lesson begins now. 2700 years ago, Sappho is the world's first love poet, the tenth muse of the ancient Greeks, and the inspiration for every lovelorn writer and songster since. But history catches up with her, and over time, Sappho becomes just a gap to be filled with the lusts and desires of each new generation... Sappho...in 9 fragments is a roller-coaster, tour de force through two and a half millennia of Sappho's story, weaving together the strange tale of her fragmented reception with a contemporary love story in her own words. As a timeless Sappho relives her uses and abuses through history, in the modern world a heart-broken young woman tries to piece together the fragments of her sexual awakening.
Author Jane Montgomery Griffiths
