Shaking off the dust of 2,600 years, the famous (and infamous) Greek poet shares her wholly engrossing storyIn this finely-drawn portrait, Sappho of Lesbos narrates her extraordinary life, from her childhood in wartorn Mitylene to her relentless adult search for passionate love and the all-consuming fever of her Muse-guided poetic gift. The toast of kings for her verse, Sappho was also a shrewd businesswoman, an educator, an advocate of women's equality, and an aristocrat. This memoir introduces a brilliant, magnetic legend to a new generation.
